CORONAFORMATION

New vocabulary related to the coronavirus is spreading almost as fast as the virus itself. For instance, I’ve heard “quoutfit” (quarantine outfit – what you wear at home all day in a quarantine) and “quaranstream” (binge-watching if you’re confined to your home). To this new vocabularly, I’ve made up another one: CORONAFORMATION (Coronavirus + Spiritual Formation). Does God long to continue to shepherd you as your Heavenly Father with tenderness and strength during the coronavirus?  You bet! Our church staff will be providing digital content during these unusual times. You can check out this page or Pastor Jason’s blog for frequent CORONAFORMATION content for your personal walk with the Lord and for your family.




TWC HONORS ZON ASSISTED LIVING EMPLOYEES

May 18, 2020

Last week during National Healthcare/Skilled Nursing Week, Trinity Wellsprings Church honored those who are on the local “front line” of the coronavirus by honoring the health care, administrative, and maintenance workers at Zon Assisted Living Facility.

Our desire is to be a church family that overflows with God's grace and love. During these challenging days, we hope to support and honor the hard-working staff at Zon who continue loving and caring for the beloved Senior Citizen residents at the facility. We also showed support to our local businesses, as we presented a local restaurant gift card to each of the employees of Zon Assisted Living Center in appreciation for all these workers are doing to care for the residents.

Our youth group RIPTIDE and other adults helped assemble 125 baskets and gift bags snacks for these workers' break-time.  Amidst all the bad news in our nation and world, Trinity Wellsprings Church longs to spread a simple message of joy, intergenerational solidarity, and cooperative love in our community during these days of social isolation.

wash before using

--Steve Schantz

April 1, 2020

Over the past few weeks we’ve all become accustomed to washing our hands at every opportunity. It’s not so much the visible dirt we fear right now, but an invisible virus.  We take great pains to keep this virus as far from our home and our family as possible, hoping that a treatment and a cure for Covid-19 is soon in coming. But there is another cleansing and cure which God’s Word points us to in this season.
