More info about the movie is below:

Gather the Family celebrates the “invitation to joy” that’s at the heart of family worship.

Modern busy lifestyles conspire against families taking the time to gather together. But Gather the Family visits families across the country who are enjoying the benefits that abound when families take even a few minutes to worship God together during the week.

Far from a burden or drudgery, this film reveals the joy that emerges when family worship becomes a priority in the home.

Family worship holds the lasting value of building biblical truths in the foundation of a family. The experience also forges family unity in a uniquely rewarding way.

Much more than just a “how-to” instructional guide, Gather the Family inspires and encourages families to accept the “invitation to joy” that’s offered when they gather for family worship.

Not Only Speak, But Live!

Written by Admin on May 27th, 2011

I’ve been inspired recently in reading a work by the early Christian writer, Mark Felix.  In one respect, I was surprised to see how little society changes.  As we age, many of us in conservative Christian circles tend to bemoan the downward spiral of moral depravity which seems to be more and more commonplace.  Yet, when one looks carefully at the annals of history and cultures past, it is easy to agree with Ecclesiastes 1:9 which states “there is nothing new under the sun.” Read More

Family Integrated Youth Ministry

Written by Bret on March 7th, 2011

How does a family integrated church minister to youth or young adult singles who don’t have believing families or any family at all?

The modern church creates programs to reach a variety of sub groups, such as youth groups and singles ministries.  In a family integrated church model, these types of programs are non-existent so it is imperative to address the issue of how to minister to people who don’t attend with their family.

The Path Less Traveled

Written by Bret on February 10th, 2011

When reading the Bible what do you want to “get out of it”?  There seems to be two different popular paths to go down when answering this question, but we need to look to Scripture for the correct answer. Read More

“Where’s the Pastor?”

Written by Admin on January 18th, 2011

This is a question we receive periodically from folks considering attendance at Wellsprings Church or from other organizations/ministers/pastors within the community.  To which, we respond “there is no pastor” – yes, imagine the puzzled looks we have received.  “No pastor?  But who leads the church?  Who teaches?”  To that, we simply reply “the elders”.  In our pursuit to measure all that we do against God’s Word, we have found ourselves in a leadership model that is quite unique and contrary to mainstream churches.

Divided: The Movie @ Wellsprings, Saturday 2/19/2011

Written by Admin on January 11th, 2011

FAMILY MOVIE NIGHT at Wellsprings Church!

divided banner

Divided from NCFIC on Vimeo.

Wellsprings Church will be showing the movie Divided: Is Age Segregated Ministry Multiplying or Dividing the Church as the next installment of our ongoing FAMILY NIGHT movie series.

ABOUT THE FILM:  Divided is a movie about one crisis the church faces today. Christian youth are rapidly leaving evangelical churches for the world. This well-recognized disaster has been the topic of significant discussion in recent years for both church leaders and modern news media. DIVIDED follows young Christian filmmaker Philip LeClerc on a revealing journey as he seeks answers to what has led his generation away from the church.

Traveling across the country conducting research and interviewing church kids, youth ministry experts, evangelists, statisticians, social commentators, and pastors, Philip discovers the shockingly sinister roots of modern, age-segregated church programs, and equally shocking evidence that the pattern in the Bible for training future generations is at odds with modern church practices. He also discovers a growing number of churches that are abandoning age-segregated Sunday school and youth ministry to embrace the discipleship model that God prescribes in His Word.

WHEN: Saturday, February 19, 2011.  5pm FREE Pizza. 6pm Movie.

WHERE: Thomas Jefferson Charter School, 1209 Adam Smith Ave, Caldwell, ID 83605

WHY: Wellsprings is a family integrated church dedicated to building the kingdom through strong families. We feel that the issue of the biblical discipleship of children and age segregation plays an important role in this vision.

HOW: RSVP to us by 2/18/2011.

COST: Did we mention, it’s FREE!  Please RSVP so that we may have an accurate count for seating and pizza.

A People Prepared: Wellsprings Teaching Theme for 2011

Written by Admin on December 30th, 2010

Our teaching theme for 2011 is: “A PEOPLE PREPARED.” The biblical concept behind this theme is found in Luke 1:17.

“And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord.”

While Luke obviously makes reference to the ministry of John the Baptist here, the Elders have chosen this passage to reflect the vision for Wellsprings Church for the coming year of 2011, on several different levels.  Over the last several years, we have been repeatedly made aware of our country’s efforts to be prepared in case of another terrorist attack thanks to postings and alerts from Homeland Security. Many people take natural precautions and prepare themselves for emergencies (via first aid kits, membership in AAA, stocking the pantry with extra food or water, gun ownership, self-defense courses, etc).  But for Christians, while these things may be prudent, they are secondary to spiritual preparation. Are you prepared? Here are 4 questions that I would propose for your consideration:
