Wellspring United Methodist Church  The similaries between churches founded in the tradition of Church of the Saviour abound. Wellspring is located in Williamsburg, VA, but COS had a great influence in their creation. It is a community of faith driven by the Spirit, led by the laity, and committed to Christian discipleship. Wellspring will empower each person on a Christian journey that fosters deep commitment and faithfulness. In order to further His transformation of individual lives, we will strive to reveal Christ to each other and the community.
