A Note About Spring 2013 Offerings:

Hello Wellspring Family,

Like every other good New Englander, I’m eagerly anticipating the spring, when I can finally shed my heavy coat, turn off the heat and open some windows. I’m done with winter.

I’m also looking forward to spring here at Wellspring (notice we’re not Wellwinter) because we’ve got a host of terrific educational opportunities for everyone.

  • We Are Wellspring returns. We Are Wellspring is a 12-week class designed to introduce you to the values and convictions of the Wellspring community. This is who we are, what we do, why we do it, and how you can get involved. Sundays during the 9:00 service beginning April 7.
  • Firestarters returns. Firestarters is a remarkable 12-week experience for building an active faith to see God do miracles in you, around you, and especially through you. Sundays during the 11:00 service beginning April 7.
  • Enrichment Classes are back. Four new enrichment classes will be offered this spring. Rabbi Cliff Librach returns to teach on topics from the Old Testament; Andrew Springman offers vital worship training; learn how to offer valuable prayer ministry for people in our body; and discover what God is saying to you. Wednesday nights beginning April 3.

We’re working hard “to prepare God’s people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up” (Ephesians 4:12). Come be built up!

Blessings,
Mike McKinniss
