Sunday Morning

Nursery

YouthSpirit

Our Nursery is staffed all morning with two experienced caregivers who can attend to the needs of our littlest ones (5 and under). We do welcome all ages to stay in our service throughout the entire morning, so please choose what’s best for your family!


Children

Children at WellSprings begin each Sunday morning in our lively, music-filled service with their families, and are dismissed to YouthSpirit about 25 minutes after the service begins.


In YouthSpirit, we strive to create spaces where our kids experience and talk about the things that make living more meaningful, like friendship, gratitude, kindness, forgiveness, and caring for self, each other and all living things. Our YouthSpirit Coordinator and a team of volunteers gather our kids in one or two mixed-age groups for games, projects, conversations, stories, theater, art, multimedia, and service, helping our kids build their “community muscle” as they each grow their spirits, souls, and sense of self.


Teens

Once or twice a year, we organize programs for teens at WellSprings around spiritual practice, personal exploration, or building healthy relationships. Typically these programs run for 8-10 weeks, concurrent with our Sunday morning services. Past programs have included Mindfulness for Teens, the Our Whole Lives (OWL) series on sexuality and healthy relationships, and Spark!, which helps our teens form a deeper spiritual life and a grounding for their beliefs.


Teens are also invited to participate as full members of many WellSprings Teams which can provide an opportunity to serve their community while growing their skills, local connections, and a sense of autonomy and responsibility. The Tech Team, Setup & Support Team, Hospitality Team, and YouthSpirit Mentors Team all provide opportunities for teens and youth to serve on Sunday mornings. Our HeartWorks Team also works with YouthSpirit to connect kids and teens to service opportunities open to all ages, throughout the year.


YouthSpirit

Welcome to WellSprings' YouthSpirit Program!

Fostering family spiritual growth is one of our core values at WellSprings. We equip families to grow together spiritually in all the days they share. Lifespan religious education nurtures spiritual formation and faith development for all people in our community. Sundays are not about "getting religion" for one day a week, but about motivating, sustaining and celebrating the religion we have and that we yearn to make stronger.


In YouthSpirit, we strive to create an environment where our children can grow spiritually, experience joy, and make friends and connections. Our program is educational, but more importantly, it aims to be meaningful, and is designed to encourage age-appropriate spiritual awareness and practice.


Our YouthSpirit Coordinator plans and leads our Sunday morning activities, and a diverse group of WellSprings members serve as mentors to our kids, leading experiences and conversations designed to be integrated into life beyond Sunday morning. Parents leave each service with an outline of what their kids discussed in YouthSpirit, along with suggested questions to spark conversation throughout the week.
