Worship & Music

“Come …not because you must, but because you may.Come not to express an opinion or to voice a complaint, but to seek a presence and to pray for a Spirit.Come not because before God you are fulfilled, but because before God you stand in need of mercy and assurance.Come, then, however it is that you are.And know that God came in the form of Jesus the Christ to share our common lot and to invite us to bring about the world that God intends.”

What can you expect?

You can expect to have your heart stretched. One of the most beautiful things about the worship experience is that we are reminded, again and again, that we are not alone and that whatever burdens we are carrying are not ours alone to solve. At the same time, we are continuously called to a life of service and generosity.

You can expect to have your mind challenged. We do not shy away from difficult questions or sensitive topics. At Rock Spring, we love to ask questions. By asking and living with questions, we hope to open our minds to new ideas that can change our perceptions and lead us, and this world, to positive change.

You can expect some variety. While we usually follow the same order of service each week, what happens within that order will vary depending on the theme of the day, the seasons, or what is happening in our world.

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.
