The world is desperate for the Savior, and Wellspring Church is called to participate in fulfilling the Great Commission (Matthew 28:19) by spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ around the corner and across the globe. This is exciting work, something we want every person who calls Wellspring their home church to participate in. To that end, we aim to provide opportunities for our congregation to strengthen their walk with Christ by actively participating in mission work locally and globally, through finances, prayer and service.
🇿🇦 WE NEED YOUR HELP FOR KEY of HOPE!
Want to make a global impact without traveling overseas? How about from the comfort of your own home? We have an opportunity for you to get involved!
In November, Key of Hope, an organization from South Africa that Wellspring started supporting on a monthly basis this fall, is sending their children's choir to the United States. Started a decade ago, Key of Hope's vision is to reach thousands of poverty, HIV and AIDS stricken children with the love of God, transforming them into ambassadors of change in their families, schools and communities. The children's choir will be arriving on Saturday, November 18, in Detroit and driving to Hudsonville that evening. On Sunday, November 19, they'll help lead worship during the morning services at Wellspring. They also will be hosting concerts at GVSU and at a couple of other churches in the area on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.
Got the Gift of Extra Space or Hospitality?
What they need and what we've committed to helping them with is lodging. Do you have the gift of hospitality and/or a little extra room to share with these kids? Will you step up and host a handful of choir members during this time for 2, 3 or 4 nights? You don't need beds for everyone or even blow up mattresses. Sleeping bags or blankets and pillows in a warm location is all they have asked for. This is a great opportunity for us as a church to show Christ's love and to participate in international missions without leaving town.
Contact Matt at email@example.com or 616-307-7429 if you have questions or would like to sign up to host a group of kids (five boys or five girls). Each group of kids will have one chaperone from Key of Hope staying with them as well.
Those who spread the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ are in desperate need of prayer, for open doors, God's guidance and protection, boldness of witness and much more.
“Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message, so that we may proclaim the mystery of Christ, for which I am in chains.”
The Great Commission is as important locally as it is globally. And we believe that developing relationships in our neighborhoods and our communities opens the door for sharing the Gospel.
"But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth."
