Ministries

CHILDREN & FAMILIES

Children and Family Ministries at Wellshire is a nurturing community dedicated to empowering families in their journey of faith and service. Our mission is to create a supportive environment where families come together to cultivate their children’s spiritual growth. Through a range of engaging programs, we aim to provide meaningful experiences for children and parents alike: childcare, Sunday school, Parents’ Day Out, “Club 45” (a fellowship experience for kids in 4th and 5th grade), and Children’s Choir.

We recognize the importance of parents’ roles in nurturing their children’s spiritual and personal development. That’s why we provide parent fellowship groups that offer opportunities for mutual support. At Wellshire, we believe that together, we can build a strong foundation of faith, values, and community involvement for our children. Join us as we embark on this meaningful journey of growth and discovery, hand in hand with your family.

YOUTH & COLLEGE

The youth ministries at Wellshire exist to be a place where students feel safe to explore their faith in Jesus Christ, participate in God’s mission for the world, and develop authentic relationships with their peers, their leaders, and our Triune God. Wellshire’s Middle School and High School groups are open to all sixth through twelve grade students.
Wellshire is also committed to supporting college students through an ecumenical college ministry at the University of Denver as well as through ongoing support of students who grew up at Wellshire.

ADULTS- ALL AGES

Our young adult ministries have been specially designed for busy 20- and 30-somethings who are looking for fellowship.

For adults, we offer a chance to foster faith and unity through enriching Adult Education initiatives and engaging fellowship experiences.

Our commitment is to provide a range of learning prospects, ensuring a diverse spiritual journey for our congregation.

DEACONS

From serving communion, including for our homebound members, to ensuring safety in our parking lots and guiding arrivals, our dedicated Deacons work tirelessly for our congregation and community, meeting diverse needs.

Sundays are enriched by Deacons’ warm welcomes. They spread cheer through visits, delivering flowers, and maintaining connections with our assisted living friends. And our bi-annual Pancake Breakfast is a congregational favorite. Join us at Wellshire, where service embodies connection, compassion, and faith.

CARE

The Wellshire Care Center allows the congregation to enjoy the joy of life and struggle through the sorrows of life together. Through phone calls, cards, prayers, and visits, the Care Team serves the needs of the Wellshire community by making a big church smaller.

The Wellshire Knitters and the Sewing Fellowship use their gifts to make prayer shawls for those in need and sew the quilts presented to children upon their baptism. For more information, contact Pat Van Bramer about the Wellshire Knitters or Carol Britt about the Sewing Fellowship.

Wellshire provides office space for Centus Counseling, a licensed counseling service staffed by Mollie Byington. Centus offers personal and family counseling services to Wellshire and the surrounding community.
