Recap: Family Fun at Our Inter-Generational Game Night

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our first Inter-Generational game night this past Saturday evening. Our group started off by saying hello to many faces who we have not seen in some time. We played through a few rounds of Skribbl and applied our best artist skills to allow others to guess which word we were drawing. We also played through a round of a Wellsprings themed Kahoot. Members of the congregation can set up their own Kahoot account for free…

Thank You for a Successful MLK Day of Service

Well done, WellSprings! Thanks to your generosity, our team was able to donate hundreds of much needed items to Media Fellowship House.

Teen Game Nights at WellSprings

Did you know…? Twice a month, our YouthBridge Ministry has been planning and holding virtual game nights for WellSpringers between the ages of 13 and 17. This is a great opportunity for our teens to take a break from distance learning and hectic schedules, and get some (virtual) face time with friends. While games are the main focus, there is always some great conversation sparked by current events, or anything on our teens’ minds. Our next Teen Game Nights have…

Building a Bridge Into the Future

Imagine this:You rush to get everyone dressed and out the door (knowing you’ll be 10 minutes late, again) but knowing it’s worth it… because today is the first Sunday your teen will be worship leader at WellSprings. A fourth grader hands you a bulletin at the door, when you arrive, his dad close behind – and glancing back at the Tech booth, you notice your teen’s old babysitter (home from college for the summer) is running the sound board today! Families mill…
