About

Wellspring Family Church (WFC) is a “newly formed” EFCA church in St. Louis. We formed by merging two established congregations in order to be more effective in ministry. Our mission is to Invite Our Communities to Belong and Flourish in Christ.  Our passion as a contemporary church is to use the latest technology, resources and music in a creative way to be relevant in reaching our world. We are just getting started in doing what God has called this church to do – and we are committed to a strategy which includes gathering for worship, connecting in groups, equipping to serve and inviting our communities into the life of Christ. This may be your opportunity to be a part of that!

The Worship Ministry

WFC is focused on sound biblical teaching and Christ-exalting worship. The Sunday morning experience is the primary time for our church family to worship together. It is also a main entry point for people to invite non-believers, as well as believing friends and neighbors. The worship style is modern, with an appreciation for historical elements that make sense in a modern styled service. The current members of the WFC worship team are talented, experienced and passionate about worship. Our sound and video technology has just been recently updated to accommodate live streaming. There are approximately forty volunteers currently serving in the worship and media ministries.
