I'm New! (What to Expect)

Come join us for our Christmas and New Year's Eve Services:

You are invited to bring the whole family to any of our special services at the end of December. Celebrate Christmas and ring in the New Year with us, and may the light of Christ guide the way!


December 17th - Christmas Cantata

9:30 and 11:00 a.m. (NO 8:30 service that day)

Amidst the suffering of this world, Christ’s light reaches down and offers the gift of unending peace and joy.  This music reconnects the heart with the wonder of our Savior’s birth and the everlasting hope we find only in Him.  Come and listen to these seasonal melodies as you lift high the name of Christ—our ultimate hope.

Welcome to Wellspring, where "All Are Welcome, All Are Accepted."


What Can I Expect on Sunday Morning?


We have three services on Sunday morning:


8:30 AM Worship with Traditional Hymns

9:30 AM Worship with Choir-Led Hymns

11:00 AM Worship with Band-Led Contemporary Songs


While the style of music is different at each service, the services include a time of prayer, readings from the Bible, and teaching/preaching - usually by our senior pastor. Sometimes during the year our retired clergy or special guests may preach. 


You can expect to be greeted at the front door by a friendly volunteer, who will assist you in finding your destination. Please ask one of these members for assistance. 


If you have nursery-age children, we recommend you arrive a few minutes early to have time to check them in. Older children usually begin the service with their families and are excused to Sunday School after the children’s time “Lesson for All Ages.” Of course, children are always welcome in church, so your children can stay with you. Ask an usher for an activity pack if you need something for busy hands. 



What Should I Wear?


We want you to be comfortable! You will see people worshipping in everything from suits to shorts. 



Can I Receive Holy Communion?


We celebrate Holy Communion, sometimes also called The Lord’s Supper, usually on the first Sunday of the month. Holy Communion is a gift available to all - you do not have to be Methodist to receive the elements.
