Training Rides take place every Saturday in May. Contact Beth Hamstra.

Donating by writing a check for any amount to Wellshire Church with Team Wellshire in the memo. You can give in the name of a rider you know by going to www.crowdrise.com/team-wellshire (please note that CrowdRise charges a 9% user fee, but writing a check to Wellshire ensures your entire donation goes to the orphans).

New this year! You can ride a little, contribute much. The 8 mile ride has been established for people of all ages to enjoy a pleasant bike ride and the event festivities. If you want more action, you can ride the route as many times as you want. Registration cost is only $30.

Whether you’re a bike-rider or a check-“rider”, your participation helps feed, clothe, provide medical help, and pay school fees for approximately 1,000 orphans. This event provides half of the annual budget of the HCOC. Questions? Visit a Team Wellshire rep at the poster in the Fellowship Hall, or contact George Scheuernstuhl.

What shapes how we see the world and how we behave? What fears and underlying needs determine how we act—for both good and bad? How can knowing this give us greater insight into ourselves and others, ultimately increasing our capacity to offer compassion and grace? Throughout the weekend, we’ll practice different ways of seeing and experiencing God through creative exercises, discussion, meditation and scripture.

We hope you will join us for the Wellshire Presbyterian Church Women’s Retreat, scheduled for April 20-22, 2018. The retreat will be led by the Rev. Lisle Gwynn Garrity and will be held at the Franciscan Retreat Center in Colorado Springs. Check-in on April 20 is 3:00-6:00 pm.

Rev. Lisle Gwynn Garrity is an artist, retreat leader, and creative entrepreneur working within the Presbyterian Church (USA) and beyond. As founder of A Sanctified Art LLC, a collaborative arts collective creating multimedia resources for churches, Lisle believes in the prophetic and freeing power of art to connect us more deeply to God and one another. She holds master’s degrees in divinity and practical theology from Columbia Theological Seminary in Atlanta. Based in the beautiful rolling hills of Black Mountain, NC, Lisle enjoys creative worship, the intersections of art and justice, yoga, and long walks with her pup, Max.
