Beth and Chip Rockwell remember well their first Sunday at Trinity, approximately 25 years ago. Lifelong member Aileen Snyder leaned from her seat behind them in the pew and said, “You must be related to Joe Rockwell.” Turns out, Joe is Chips’ father whom Mrs. Snyder had taught with decades earlier. Later on in coffee call, Poke Nicodemus, another Trinity lifer, greeted them as well. The Rockwells say, “Ever since that first Sunday, we felt like family at Trinity.”
The Rockwells grew up in a Lutheran congregation, and Trinity seemed the right place to raise Rebecca (now 21) and Jacob (18).
They have always appreciated the love and support Trinity members show one another during good times and bad. They participate in many facets of life here at Trinity including bible study, Sunday School, and as the latest directors of our Contemporary Choir.
Very simply put, Chip is a wick seller for Fil-Tec in Cavetown, and Beth juggles roles as a mom, working at Inn Boonsboro and Turn the Page Bookstore, and using her artistic gifts hooking wool rugs and other primitive and period crafts. She is part of the Log Cabin Crafters Guild. Rebecca is a junior at Waynesburg University in Pennsylvania, and Jacob has begun his education at Malone University in Canton, Ohio.
In the hobby arena, Chip enjoys riding his old Goldwing, Beth enjoys doing her hand crafts. The entire Rockwell family enjoys getting together with friends and family for fellowship over a good meal, as well as listening to, singing and playing good music.
If you aren’t already friends with the Rockwells, you are missing out! Say “Hi,” next Sunday!
