Worship

Our weekly Sunday 10:15 service uses the more contemporary Anglican liturgy of Rite 2, and is a wonderful blend of both old and new, ancient and modern. The musical part of our worship is an equal blend of both contemporary songs and traditional hymns led by our Worship Team. Childcare for toddlers is always provided in the Nursery. 

Our Prayer and Praise Service on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of each month, is an unstructured time of worship, prayer, and teaching, with awesome music. It begins at 6:30 pm. 

What to Expect

We realize that walking into a new church can be bewildering for even the most seasoned church-goer. Following, is some basic information about what to expect when you come to a Sunday worship service at Wellspring. sheet_music.jpgWorship is at the heart of the Christian life. It is in worship that we express our theology and define our identity. It is through encountering God in worship that we are formed and transformed as his people.

One of the glories of Anglicanism is its liturgical worship. What is “liturgy”? Liturgy refers to the words and actions through which public worship is conducted. It is the "work of the people". The most distinctive form of worship in Christianity has a variety of names, including Holy Communion, the Eucharist, the Mass and the Lord’s Supper. At Wellspring, we celebrate Holy Communion every Sunday morning.

As you enter the door, you will be welcomed by greeters who are equipped to answer any immediate question you may have.  As you move into the Sanctuary (the worship space), an usher will provide you with a worship bulletin that contains all you will need to know to worship with us. It will provide the text of the service, scripture readings that will be read, the words of both the contemporary songs and traditional hymns that will be sung, and announcements of important events. We also use video projection for your convenience. Please feel free to sit anywhere.

We pray together for our needs as a community and for those outside our community. We confess our sins together. Together we ask for the Lord’s peace to be with each person present. Important announcements are made. People having birthdays or celebrating an anniversary of marriage or baptism are prayed for. All who are baptized Christians then share a common meal of bread and wine that defines our community’s identity as the body of Christ. The service ends with the blessing of all God’s people.

Following the service, we meet in the mezzanine for food and conversation, catching up with old friends and making new friends.

  

 Worship for Children

Those of you who have children may be wondering about their part in worship at Wellspring. Children are the future church, and as such they rightly have a part in worship. All children are welcome to be present for the full worship service in the sanctuary. Parents, you know your children’s strengths and weaknesses better than anyone.We have a wonderful nursery for infants and toddlers. For those parents with children ages 4 through 7, who’d prefer, we have an exciting Children’s Chapel that meets in our Sun Room for the first part of the service, and join worshipping adults at announcement time.
