Fifth Sunday Worship and Service Project

Every month with a Fifth Sunday is a special occasion for Rock Springers and anyone who is interested in serving the world. After a special worship service (10:00 a.m. Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day weekend, 11:00 a.m. at all other times) members, friends, and visitors alike have the chance to be of service to the world through a special project that will involve being in service to the wider community.

Small Groups

Rock Spring has dozens of small groups engaged in everything from knitting to tree planting.  Groups as small as 4 or five meet for lunch, a monthly book discussion, or a bike ride.  Some folks help bag meals for the local food assistance program. Whatever piques your interest, come join us!

Adult Education

We offer many opportunities for adult education. You’ll find short-term book groups, long-term Bible Studies, our weekly video discussion series, and more.

Exploring Membership

As you worship with us and begin to participate more fully in the life of our community, we hope you might consider deepening your connection to the church. If you’re interested in becoming a member or learning more about Rock Spring, check the calendar for upcoming Exploring Membership classes or contact one of the pastors.

Rock Spring has a strong and growing relationship with the Shirlington Employment and Education Center, known as SEEC, in South Arlington.

Working in teams of two, Rock Springers are responsible for five MOW routes on the first and third Fridays of each month.

The Green Team

Every month with a fifth Sunday is a special event at Rock Spring including worship and a community wide service project.

Greeters volunteer to greet all who enter our worship services providing a welcome environment.

Hospitality volunteers provide punch, coffee, and other treats following worship services each Sunday.

The Ambassadors volunteer in the church office answering phones, greeting guests, and helping with clerical duties.

Ushers provide a warm welcome, pass out bulletins, help people find seats, and help collect the offering every Sunday.

Latest News

Everyone will have noticed by now a slow-down in the project. This is due to our main contractor, NKB, walking off the job on August 1 and informing us by letter that they could not complete the work.

On September 10 at 10:00 a.m., we will welcome guest preacher Rev. Sid Lovett for a service focused on peace and specifically the important work of the US Institute for Peace. Following worship, join together for a congregational lunch to catch up with the Rock Spring family after the summer.

The reality is that I too have

Authored your pain.

I laid a blank piece of paper down

When you needed me to respond.

I chose the shortcut.

I learned complicity,

Learned to move quietly in my privilege,

Learned to let the doors open for me

Before walked inside.

I inherited fear

And did not unlearn it.

In fight or flight, I flew.

I confess all this.

And I commit to hearing

The raw stories,

To letting your vulnerability

Chafe me.
