Wellshire joins churches around the nation in collecting canned goods over Super Bowl Weekend again this year through the youth-driven hunger initiative Souper Bowl of Caring. Please bring canned goods to the table in the Narthex and bins in the Adult Ed Suite through Sunday, February 17.
This annual effort dovetails with Wellshire’s Youth Sunday on February 3, during worship services at 9:00 and 11:00 am. Children’s Education will be on recess, so children will remain in worship.
Evening Song is a new intergenerational worship experience at Wellshire. Come encounter God in new, different, and creative ways after gathering around the table together. Evening Song is not a replacement for Sunday mornings but an opportunity for adults and children to interact with the scripture and God together. Come young or old, male or female, confident or searching. Each month’s Evening Song will be on the 2nd Sunday with a different theme and scripture.[clear]
[highlight] Next Evening Song: Sunday, April 9 (Palm Sunday) [/highlight]
Join us as we kick off Holy Week and experience Jesus’ humble act of service and mandate to his closest friends, the disciples—reminding us all of how to love each other. This is the last Evening Song of the school year—don’t miss out!
General Evening Song Schedule:
5:15 pm Come together as a community before 2nd Sunday Evening Song to share in a dinner meal.
Please sign up to volunteer to help provide childcare to Wellshire’s youngest between 9:45 and 11:15 am on Sunday mornings during 10:00 am summer worship. Please pick as many dates as you’d like to volunteer. Volunteers are required to be 18 years or older, please. Youth 13 yrs and older may assist by contacting the Interim Children’s Ministry Coordinator.
Please join us in worship on Sunday November 15 for Generosity Sunday; Dr. Bell preaches on Philippians 4:4-14. Please note that both services will be in the Sanctuary. The annual Wellshire tradition of Generosity Sunday gives individuals in the Wellshire community the opportunity to pledge their financial commitment for the upcoming year during worship. Please prayerfully consider how you can practice the spiritual discipline of giving, which undergirds the ministries critical to Wellshire’s work as the hands and feet of Christ – we can’t do it without you![clear]
“We all devote our time, work energy, and money to that which is important to us. Increased giving each year has strengthened my faith and my bond with my church family. Financial Peace University has enlightened me to the concept of giving a tithe and offerings — not a tithe or offerings. Rev. John Bell has pointed out that generosity to our church — the Body of Christ — is having a religious as well as a spiritual experience. I feel it!” — A “Piece of the Body of Christ” at Wellshire Church
Worship on November 2 will celebrate All Saints’ Day, focusing on the departed saints of Wellshire Presbyterian Church. We will once again read out the names of those who passed away during the previous year and light candles in their memory. This moving and memorable tradition will be accompanied by Malcolm Archer’s Requiem at 11:00 am, presented by the Wellshire Sanctuary Choir.[clear]
