Instead of talking about ‘the church for others,’ we should speak of ‘the church with others.’
Transforming Mission: Paradigm Shifts in Theology of Mission,
– David J. Bosch
At Wellshire Presbyterian Church, we strive to be a thoughtful and thought-provoking congregation. We seek to honor questions of faith and mission as we venture outside the walls of Wellshire to serve Christ in Denver, Colorado.
We work alongside one another — sharing in good spirits and good humor — for the common good.
We seek to build relationships with all God’s people and partner with them out of friendship and hospitality. We want to know one another!
If you would like to join us in this journey of exploration and service, please contact Beth Hamstra.
