Caring for People

"Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ." - Galatians 6:2

COVID Prayer and Pastoral Care

During this time, we are aware that there are prayer concerns you would like to share. We have a prayer team that is always ready to lift your prayer concerns each week. Pastor Jeff is always willing to lift any confidential prayer concerns in his own prayer time.

We also have those who are in need of Pastoral Care in the form of a phone call (and followup calls or emails, as well). Pastor Jeff will be glad to contact anyone identified as needing pastoral care. Some may wish to be contacted by members of our Pastoral Care Team or Stephen Ministry Team.

We have created a form that will be submitted directly to Pastor Jeff each week for him to act on. There is a section for you to identify yourself as the person making the submission, a space for prayer concerns and a space for pastoral care concerns. 

You can access that form HERE.

Care Teams

We have teams of folks who provide direct care to friends and family of Wellspring who are in need. Hospital and long-term care visitors, providing meals, sending greeting cards and gift baskets, making prayer shawls, and peer-counseling (e.g. Stephen Ministry) are just a few of the ways we provide care.

Please contact Andy David if you need assistance, or would like to join our team.

If you have a Pastoral Care emergency, please contact the church office.

Prayer Ministry

During the pandemic we have been meeting on Zoom on Tuesdays at 2:00 p.m. - contact Andy David for more information at

We invite you to share in this ministry by praying for others and the sharing of your own joys and concerns. We pray alone, in small groups, and as a community of faith.

Prayer Ministry Team

Meets weekly on Mondays at 2:00pm at the Wesleyan Estrella Assisted Living Private Dining Room, 109 Estrella Crossing in Georgetown. The focus is on praying for the church and church leaders, our community and personal prayer requests. The team seeks to promote prayer by example and instruction as an essential discipline for all believers. If you want to pray with us, we welcome you! Contact Dan Bonner at for more information. Or read here for an invitation to the new prayer team venue.

Intercessory Prayer

A weekly listing of personal prayer requests is made of those individuals, families, and friends of Wellspring requesting prayers, and are prayed over each Monday by the Prayer Ministry Team.

Close Friends


In response to a challenge by the pastor, the United Methodist Men’s group made a decision to form an alzheimers support group. Planning began in late 2007. In order to obtain the necessary education, the core team of volunteers met several times with experts in the field of dementia support and attended various seminars on the subject.

The first session of Close Friends took place on the last Friday in October, 2008. We had four dementia patients and 13 volunteers from the church. 

Close Friends meets most Fridays year-round at 10:00 AM. 

Current schedule:

10:00 Coffee, pastries, fellowship

10:25 Devotional

10:30 Exercise

11:00 Entertainment

11:30 Crafts

12:00 Lunch

12:30 Memory Exercises

12:45 Bingo

1:25 Balloon Ball

Stephen Ministry

Stephen Ministers are lay congregation members trained to provide one-to-one care to those experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or relocation.

Stephen Ministers come from all walks of life, but they all share a passion for bringing Christ’s love and care to people during a time of need.
