Joining together to serve our cities.
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2:1-4
At The Well, demonstrate is one of our core values. We demonstrate the gospel by meeting tangible needs in our community. Community Groups come together to celebrate and serve. As a church body, we gather as a family to serve our neighbors at various events throughout the year.
We encourage 3D groups and Community Groups to make serving our city a regular rhythm of living life together. Below you will find some of the organizations that people and Community Groups from The Well have worked with to bless and serve our city. You can contact the group directly for opportunities to serve, or reach out to The Well for more details by clicking here.
