Summer Book Club for Adults

Adult Summer Book Club

This summer we hope you’ll join us in thoughtful contemplation and conversation about Howard Thurman’s book Jesus and the Disinherited. This text, often cited as inspiration for Martin Luther King Jr., explores God’s justice for the poor and oppressed. It encourages us to love ourselves and each other with the hope of seeing God’s Kingdom prevail. You are encouraged to read the book in July and we will meet on August 28th, after worship for a light lunch and a hearty discussion. The Library Committee and the Diversity Task Force can provide a copy of the book, if you would like one. Contact Julia Fenn with any questions or to request a book.

One Worship at 10 am Through Sept. 4

ONE WORSHIP SERVICE 

Through September 4, Wellshire has one worship service at 10:00 am in the Sanctuary. 

Summer Theme: 

Like a Rolling Stone: Living through change
As we hear stories of stones in the Bible, and especially the way the ancient Israelites used stones as markers to remember significant encounters with God, we invite YOU to bring a stone to church to add to the (temporary) cairn being built in the memorial garden, or a special one to show friends, share stories, and take back home for safekeeping.

Easter Parking at Wellshire

Friends, Easter worship at Wellshire promises to be glorious! This year all three services are scheduled to be in the sanctuary with only 30 minutes between services. Large crowds are expected and an efficient turnover of the parking lots and building is imperative. Therefore, we ask that you please allow plenty of time for parking and finding seating in the sanctuary. After worship, we also kindly ask you to vacate your parking space in a timely manner for those attending the next service!

Once Wellshire lots are full, park in the neighborhood behind the church, as the sidewalk along Colorado Blvd. is closed.

Thank you.
