What is a typical day like at Wellspring?
The day begins with a greeting and meeting time from 9 - 10 a.m. during which participants enjoy a sharing time, review their schedules and have a short devotional. Beginning at 10 a.m., participants rotate through enrichment classes and work sessions in the bakery on an hourly basis throughout the day. They have a full hour for lunch.
