The Foundation

“We rightly look at the opportunity to gather around Word and sacrament as the highlight of the week,” says Rev. Jonathan Hein, coordinator of WELS Congregational Services. “Ultimately, the gathering of the saints is the foundation of a congregation’s ministry. It is where the sheep are fed. It is where the universal priesthood gets the encouragement to be light and salt to a dark and dying world.”

With that idea in mind, WELS Congregational Services created The Foundation, an effort to build upon the importance of public worship both on Sunday morning and throughout the week. Congregational Services now provides worship, evangelism, discipleship, and school resources for every week of the year. All the resources are catalogued at and are available for free.
