ONE WORSHIP SERVICE
Beginning Sunday, May 29, Wellshire moves to one worship service at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary.
Next year, what is now known as Elephant Rock will just be a great memory. In its place will be an exciting, all-new event, with a new name, in a new location somewhere along the front range. And Team Zimbabwe will be there, continuing to raise funds for the orphans and vulnerable children in Zimbabwe.
But this year, you have a chance to close out the Elephant Rock ride in a blaze of glory – and to make this the best year ever for Team Zimbabwe and the kids!
To ride in the event with Team Zimbabwe, you must: 1) register for the ride 2) set up a fundraising page, and 3) raise a minimum of $100. (To ride with the amazing 2022 Team Zimbabwe jersey, you’ll need to raise $250. But we hope you won’t stop there. By setting up your fundraising page and sharing the link with all your friends and relatives, you can compete to be our top fundraiser and help the children even more!)
Ready to cook up some fun? The Food Truck Party VBS invites children of all ages to get on a roll with God as a parade of Food Trucks rolls into their neighborhood for the summer’s biggest party!
This VBS invites children to pray as Jesus teaches us in Matthew 6:11; “Give us this day our daily bread.” These words serve as a reminder that everything we have comes from God — and that it’s by turning to God in prayer that all of our daily needs are met.
At the center of the Food Truck Party is a special food truck called “On a Roll.” Here, Kids (or “Chefs”) will learn from the food truck’s Top Chef, along with DJ Cupcake (an adorable cupcake puppet), about the Daily Specials (Daily Learnings), which are lines from the well-loved prayer that teaches us to turn to God to meet our needs.

Abiding in Jesus: Room 207. We will begin reflecting on spiritual disciplines and how they relate to our individual strengths and gifts, using the book, Sacred Rhythms: Arranging our Lives for Spiritual Transformation, by Ruth Haley Barton. There will be copies available in class but the book is not necessary for participation.
The Difficult Words of Jesus: Room 208. Beginning January 16th. Author/scholar/teacher Dr. Amy-Jill Levine calls us to “‘wrestle’ with some of Jesus’s more confusing, controversial, and historically damage-inflicting words as recorded in the Gospels.” Participants have an opportunity “to find even Jesus’s most difficult words a catalyst for new learning, closer fellowship with him and each other, and continued growth as the people of God.” Class Facilitator: Rita Stagg. Books are available but not required.
Clif’s Notes: The Book of Revelation: Room 206
Clif Carey leads this class that will provide context and insight for the oft misunderstood book of Revelation.
