Small Groups

Jesus invested in a small group of disciples—twelve to be precise. They shared the journey together and were formed in the context of deep community. Small groups at Church at the Well are where formation takes place in the context of deep community. It’s where we practice being with Jesus together in Scripture and prayer, in meaningful conversation, and around meals or with a hot cup of coffee or tea in hand.

 

Our small groups kick off in September, with new small group opportunities emerging in winter and spring. Traditionally, we take the summer off from small groups to provide a season of rest and give leaders a break, incorporating opportunities alternative spaces for connection like picnics, bonfires, or retreat.

Children's Ministry

When parents brought their children to Jesus to be blessed, the disciples tried to shew the parents away because they saw the children as a bother. But Jesus said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children” (Mark 10:14). When we invest in children, we are investing in the Kingdom of God. At Kids Church, we engage children creatively, bringing them imaginatively into Scripture stories through art and craft, games, conversation, and prayer. We often find that even as we are planting seeds of God’s love in the little lives, they are teaching us about God’s love in big ways.

When released (usually following worship), children are invited to participate in our Children's Ministry.

  • We have classes for newborns up to kids in middle school

  • Parents are asked to accompany their kids in order to sign-in their kids

  • All volunteers who work with children are background-checked. For the safety of all, parents are only permitted to stay in the classroom with their children if they, too, have been background-checked.

  • At any point during the service, you are welcome to check on your child. Giving your phone number at check-in will ensure that volunteers can contact you if needed.

  • At the end of the worship gathering, we ask you to promptly make your way downstairs to sign out your child.

Upcoming Events

Volunteer

Serving builds community and grows us spiritually. When we serve, we connect with others, deepen our hearts, and become more like Jesus, who came to serve and not to be served.

Volunteering on Sundays:

 

Our Sunday gathering volunteers typically serve once every 4 to 6 weeks.

COFFEE SUNDAY TEAM - We set up food and drinks, pick up supplies, and clean up at our monthly Coffee Sundays following the worship gathering.

 

CONNECT TEAM – We set up the Welcome Table in the lobby and greet people as they arrive while connecting them to church resources and others.

 

COMMUNION TEAM - We serve communion on the last Sunday of the month, setting the communion table as well as preparing and serving the elements.

 

JOY BOX TEAM – We prepare financial deposits after the service, which involves recording data from charitable donations and making bank deposits.

 

KIDS' CHURCH TEAM - We serve the kids in our church family, who range in age from newborn to sixth grade. No experience is necessary, but a background check is required.

 

PRODUCTION TEAM – We operate the media presentation, run audio, and handle set up and tear down for our Sunday gatherings. No experience necessary.
