WellSprings Sunday Service--Welcoming New Members

Some Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions that we’ve received, and our answers.


What happens when I arrive?

Hospitality Team members will greet you on arrival and can answer your questions—or, feel free to arrive a few minutes early to meet and talk with Reverend Ken. Some visitors like to take advantage of open seats in the back—you can "sneak in" to check us out quietly, if that's your preference.


What can I expect at a Sunday Service?

On a typical Sunday, our service contains:

  • A Chance to Sing Together: Congregants sing along with the song leaders if they wish (lyrics are projected onto a screen). We sing contemporary, spiritually themed pop, rock, folk, and country songs from the last several decades, as well as traditional gospel and spirituals.
  • A Chance to Get to Know Each Other: Rev. Ken invites people to greet others seated nearby and to wish each other peace.
  • A Chance to Be Silent and at Peace Together: We have times for both meditation and prayer.
  • A Chance to Know What's Happening: There's a brief reading of one or two featured announcements and direction to where people can find out more information about WellSprings if they're looking for it.
  • A Chance to Share our Generosity: We take up a collection for our community giving partner, Chester County Futures in Exton – there's no pressure, and no one is expected to give.
  • A Chance For People of All Ages to Grow: Children are invited to go to YouthSpirit classes – parents can walk their children to the room and get them settled. Some children choose to stay with their parents for the adult service, which is not a problem. YouthSpirit Director Becky McAndrews helps new families get oriented to the program.
  • A Chance to Reflect on the Deeper Meaning of Our Lives: Rev. Ken delivers an inspirational, profound, literate, and often funny message.
  • A Chance for Conversation: Coffee and doughnuts are served during social time. All are welcomed to stay, but again, no pressure.
  • We hope you leave feeling better than you did when you arrived – inspired, enlivened, and "charged full with the charge of the soul," in the words of our mission (borrowed from the poet Walt Whitman).

What kind of people will I meet at a WellSprings service?

Wellsprings members are people from all walks of life and religious backgrounds: people who were raised in, or have explored, numerous Western and Eastern spiritual traditions and/or with no religion at all. Our members include single people and couples, "empty nesters," families with children of all ages from babies to high-schoolers, single parents, young adults, and people of all colors, many nationalities, and diverse lifestyles and sexual orientations.
