In Person Worship Update

  • Reservations are no longer required for any worship service, and there will not be any restrictions on the number of people who may attend worship. 
  • All of the pews are now returned to the sanctuary. You may sit anywhere in the sanctuary, but please do kindly respect those who wish to continue to maintain social distance.
  • Congregational singing has resumed.
  • Starting June 6, the 9:00 am service will be outside in the Memorial Garden for the summer, and masks will not be required. (You will need to bring a lawn chair or blanket for this service.) The 11:00 am service will continue in the Sanctuary, and it will be live-streamed for virtual participation. Masks will be required for this service out of an abundant concern for our children.
  • At all times, please be mindful of those who wish to maintain social distance.
  • Limited spaces for childcare for ages 6 weeks – Kindergarten are available. Contact Kendal for info.

We will continue to monitor attendance patterns to determine if any adjustments are needed. The summer outdoor service at 9:00 am is obviously a new addition to our worship life, but many churches are offering this option currently, and we believe it may be a positive addition to our program in these strange times!

We look forward to seeing one another in person again even as we continue to adapt and take care!

The Diversity Task Force Supports Building Bridges

Matthew 25 banner
“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you gave me clothing, I was sick and you took care of me, I was in prison and you visited me.”
Matthew 25:35-36
The Diversity Task Force recently selected Building Bridges to receive a portion of the funds raised earlier this spring by the Matthew 25 Challenge. Wellshire has partnered with Building Bridges for over 25 years, initially in support of the original Building Bridges (Seeking Common Ground) mission of connecting youth of Palestine, Israel and the U.S. in joint leadership trainings. About five years ago, the Jerusalem-based and Denver-based offices amicably parted ways. 
 
The Denver organization now provides intensive year-long communication/leadership training for Front Range high school youth (Transform), as well as Diversity/Equity/Inclusion trainings (Shift) for individual adults, businesses and other organizations. Learn more at BuildingBridgesshift.org; Groundwork adult trainings are as short as a few hours; applications for the next cohort of youth trainings are now open.

Wellshire Is A Matthew 25 Church

We Are a Matthew 25 Church

The Wellshire Session has voted to join our PC(USA) denomination’s initiative and become a “Matthew 25 Church.”

Matthew 25 recalls the story of the sheep and the goats, where the king reminds those who have asked when they served him, “just as you did it to one of the least of these…you did it to me.” Matthew 25 churches answer the call to look outside of themselves, to feed the hungry, welcome the stranger, care for the sick, visit the prisoner.
