WellsFest 2021

BENEFITTING GRACE HOUSE

In light of the surge in hospitalizations and the Delta variant, we believe it is wise to modify how we do WellsFest this year. We want to press forward with raising funds for Grace House, our 2021 beneficiary, but believe our call and commitment to healing and wholeness of the community points us toward visioning new ways to do so.

 

With that in mind, this year’s events will move online and will offer an evening of great music, an art auction, an auction of goods and services, and a pet parade. With these opportunities to raise funds and with generous donations, we can support Grace House as promised. Most of all, we can carry on the spirit of WellsFest in a safe, responsible manner that is a witness to the loving, caring, sharing ethos of Wells Church.
