Easter Prayer Vigil

COVID-19 NOTICE:
We will conduct the Easter Prayer Vigil from our homes. Since the church building is closed until further notice, we encourage you to sign-up for a prayer time-slot (see below) and pray from home at the scheduled time. 

Just as Jesus invited his disciples to pray and watch with him the night before he was arrested (Matthew 26), we invite the Wellshire community to join in a vigil of prayer for 40 hours, representing the time between Jesus’ death until His resurrection on Easter morning. This is a wonderful and meditative way to prepare for the celebration of Easter – in prayer and reflection for our community, world, and the expectation of God’s kingdom breaking into ours. The goal is to have continuous prayer throughout the vigil so we’d like to have multiple people (or families) sign-up for each time slot. You can sign up online below.

Worship Online With Us: Sunday at 9 am

Worship Online With Us on Sundays


NO IN-PERSON WORSHIP DUE TO SPREAD OF COVID-19:

As a church, we are called to faith and not fear. And we are called deeply to love and care for our neighbors, especially the most vulnerable. Out of these concerns and with rising evidence of the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Colorado, the Session has decided that we will not hold in-person worship services on Sundays until further notice. We invite you to join together as a virtual community from home.

Worshiping Together Online:
Watch the Facebook livestreaming at 9:00 am (you can watch even without a Facebook account). The livestream will begin approximately 10 minutes prior to worship time. Visit wpcdenver.org/wellshire-on-facebook/

If you do have a Facebook account, comment on the video post to let us know you’re watching so we can connect with you.
Print out the Order of Worship and hymns here to follow along on Sunday morning. You will also be able to view the recorded service after the fact via the Wellshire website or Facebook page.

Let us be faithful in our prayer for those nations, communities, families and individuals most affected by this outbreak, and for the medical personnel and government officials seeking to respond.

Help Families at Schmitt Elementary

Helping Schmitt Families

This is a strange time we’re living in. As we are pulled physically apart from our Wellshire community, it’s important to know that our call to serve and love still exists.

With the closure of schools last week, the Schmitt Elementary students are now spending their time at home playing and learning. Thankfully, Denver Public Schools continues to offer breakfast and lunch for those students in need who can get to a few designated sites. However, there are many Schmitt families who cannot travel, or need more support than just food. We have been in touch with our partners at Schmitt Elementary and they have identified 20 families with especially high needs at this time. We now have a wonderful opportunity to serve them while maintaining our social distance.

Blessing Boxes: add a few extra items to your grocery list or Amazon delivery, then drop these items at the door step of a Schmitt family during a designated time. Items can include:

  •  non-perishable food items
  • paper products (TP, paper towels)
  • cleaning supplies
  • books
  • coloring or art supplies
  • letters of support or drawings from your children

Sign up here. Just like with the Hunger Task Force Christmas baskets, you’ll receive the address and phone number of the family to coordinate the drop off (while maintaining distance!).
