John 1:14 says of Jesus, “The Word became flesh and blood and moved into the neighborhood. We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, generous inside and out, true from start to finish.” 

Wellspring is committed to being a tangible source of God’s healing love in our community. That's why our church building is two blocks away from Edison Elementary School. Along with our church building, we also own two houses within our neighborhood. Throughout the gospels, Jesus and his disciples entered into the real needs, pains, triumphs, and stories of the people they interacted with. This is our desire – to know our neighbors.  Our neighborhood ministry focuses on two main areas: Edison Elementary School and Food for Kids.

Wellspring, only a few blocks from Edison Elementary School, partners with the school staff and leadership to educate and support children and their families. Through mentoring, coaching, classroom help, providing various resources, and walking with kids to school, Wellspring stands in support of Edison. We believe education and positive relationships with adults are important for children to grow and thrive. If you'd like to volunteer at Edison, contact Kristin Miller at,
