All Are Welcome

The Rockwood Center is part of the Rockwood community.  We welcome all people regardless of religion, nationality, ethnicity, immigration status, or gender.

The Rockwood Center supports and stands with our community against racial injustice and the mistreatment of persons of color.  Black live matter in our society and our community. All human beings are created in the image of God and are sacred by divine design.   Any illusion of the superiority of white people and culture has no foundation in Scripture nor in the teachings of Jesus Christ.  Racism is a sin that has for too long found a home in religious communities, churches and organizations. 

The Rockwood Center is a place where the grace of God is expressed to all. 

The Rockwood Center has been part of the community for the last three years, providing space for community events and family gatherings.  Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have been unable to open the space and insure the safety of the community.  As we move through this ever-changing landscape of the Covid-19 virus, The Rockwood Center will follow the state and county guidelines for reopening.  Please review the state website for detailed information.


When the Rockwood Center reopens for space rentals, groups must comply with the current state and county guidelines.  For your safety, all guidelines must be followed: including contact tracing, wearing masks, and social distancing.  


The Rockwood Center is not responsible for the health of your party.  Nor can we guaranty a virus free zone.  Rental agreements are made “at Your Own Risk” during the covid-19 pandemic.


The Rockwood Center follows CDC guidelines for cleaning the facilities.  We will do all we can to maintain a safe atmosphere for gatherings.
