A Welcome from our Co-Pastor

The community at Wellspring provides an opportunity for those who attend to inquire, explore and name their faith journeys.  To do this we take time to worship, pray and respond to the scripture reading for the day.   We also take time to affirm the children each Sunday during worship prior to Children’s Church.  Our intent in being a faith community is not to be “right” about God, but to seek to live in right relationship with God, our neighbors and our world.  

As the minister at Wellspring I am most stimulated by the diversity of people who attend.  I enjoy the broad perspective offered in conversation as well as the provocative questions that arise which serve to broaden our understanding of the Christian faith.  To minister at Wellspring Community Church has been one of the most engaging endeavors of my life.  It has empowered me to continue to hope in the midst of despair and to work on behalf of justice in the midst of the chaos.  Being inclusive in my ministry is a “Gospel” issue for me.  It is important that all who come to share the faith journey are included through the language and ritual of worship on a Sunday morning.  

I invite you to come and join us as we both celebrate and wrestle with the meaning of our faith.  If you have further questions or would like a conversation prior to attending please feel free to contact me at 515-279-8248 or email me at nrkirstein@mac.com.

On the journey……………………..Naomi
