What is We Are Wellspring?
Consider We Are Wellspring the introduction to the Wellspring community – Wellspring 101. Each of the 12 classes is designed to orient you to one of the core values and major beliefs of Wellspring Church. This is the backbone to everything we do at Wellspring. It is a perfect opportunity to learn about Wellspring, to meet leaders in the church, and to connect with others in the community.
This is who we are, what we do, why we do it, and how you can get involved.

We Are Wellspring runs each Sunday from January 26th to April 13th.
A different topic each week. Come for all 12 or just drop in for a few.

Spring 2014: January 26 – April 13
January 26 | Keith Osborne
Grace and forgiveness are the two foundational traits of the kingdom of God. They form the foundation for our relationship with the Father and they pave the way for life to be lived in community.
February 2 | Scott Jensen & Mike McKinniss
God is love (1 John 4:8). Indeed, the motivation for every act of God is love. Love characterizes the Father’s attitude toward the entire creation, including each individual.
February 9 | Jenn Beglinger
God has made Jesus both Lord and Christ! It was the fundamental declaration of the apostles (Acts 2:36), and is ours as well. He is Lord and savior of creation and of our individual lives.
February 16 | Mandy Adendorff
Jesus’ Spirit has been distributed among his disciples so that they might continue the mission Jesus had begun. The Spirit of God now transforms us and enables us to look and act like Jesus.
February 23 | Pastor Rick McKinniss
God created the world with human beings to steward it righteously. We turned away from the Creator and creation went awry. The Old Testament is the Father’s drive toward redemption through Israel.
March 2 | Mike McKinniss
The redemption of the world is accomplished through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. The Kingdom of God expands throughout the world through the church.
March 9 | Pat Gigliotti
If we are to be the people of God, marked by the character and heart of the Father to accomplish the work of heaven on earth, then we must hear from the throne of God. Through prayer, we share our hearts with the Lord and listen to God’s heart for us.
March 16 | Pastor Wes Zinn
We have been blessed by God in order to be a blessing to others. We make ourselves available to God with gratitude and generosity in order to serve the world with the hands of Christ.
March 23 | Debbie McKinniss
We cannot separate salvation from wholeness, or sanctification. Repentance and forgiveness are the twin paths that lead to spiritual and physical health.
March 30 | Sally Luzietti
It is critical that Christians grow in the character of Christ throughout their lives, displaying the nature of the Savior through relationship with one another. Indeed, character is to be prized over gifting.
April 6 | Pastor Bob Switzer
You are unique and are to be encouraged in your specific calling. You will flourish as you connect intimately with the Father through the Holy Spirit.
April 13 | Nancy Riley (Lead Elder)
We seek to be a wellspring of life, encountering the depths of God’s presence and releasing the flow of God’s kingdom.
