Love Week

Wellspring Church is committed to seeing the city of Myrtle Beach and the Grand Strand impacted in profound ways because of our presence in it.  We believe that the fastest way to achieve that end is by partnering with organizations who are already “getting it done”.

We are concentrating all our efforts on several strategic outreach partners that are already knocking it out of the park in our community and beyond! This Summer we are committing an entire week to help our Community Partners! See the details below and sign up today!

Reading Buddies

The number one indicator of a child’s success is the ability to read by the end of the 3rd grade. Students with a weekly mentor are 87% more likely to graduate from  high school. Wellspring Church is partnering with Reading Buddies and with schools to help children learn to read. Our goal is to develop new volunteers to be able to read with children for one hour a week each week. During Love Weekend, volunteers who are interested will be participating in a training that will equip those volunteers to be able to read to students.
