Weller Community Church
The Weller neighborhood, located on the Northside of Springfield right off of Glenstone Avenue. This area is considered an “at risk” neighborhood by the city of Springfield. In July 2017, Grace Church accepted the responsibility of the church and has relaunched this church as an extension campus. In the first few months of the relaunch, we are seeing incredible growth, and hundreds of people being fed through the food distribution on Wednesday afternoons. Weller Community Church is led by Melanie Wilke and supported by a launch team from Grace Church. Weller continues to be a beacon of God’s love in a neighborhood forgotten by many.
