Leaving a Seat at the Table

Submitted by Rev. Steve Schantz,
Congregational Care Pastor/Director of Life Groups

Scott Jordan: A Big Thanks

Several months ago, our Session approved a much-needed sabbatical for Scott Jordan for July 2-27 with three Sundays off (July 8, 15, & 22).

Pastor: Preach, Pray, and Be With People

In the beginning, God…

“In the beginning, God…” No greater beginning can be conceived than the book of Genesis which gives the whole of creation and all of humanity a radical orientation around a majestic God-centered vision of life.  The Bible clearly lays out its programmatic emphasis in its first four words (actually only two in the Hebrew).

Introducing Rev. Dr. Jason Carter

Dear Trinity Wellsprings Church,
A joy-filled sense of gratitude which humbles a person before the Lord. These are the emotions that have accompanied my own sense of calling to be a pastor-shepherd at Trinity Wellsprings  Church.
