Starting in March 2020, the COVID-19 regulations have prevented groups from gathering. The Well Community, however, has continued to find ways to be a community while apart. One of those ways is to invite friends of The Well to video tape a message or worship session to stand in for our Thursday Night Life service. Below is a collection of links to these messages. We are so grateful for such insightful and comforting messages from these dear friends.
This week we welcome Rev. Kay Ash, Director of Christian Education at Kessler Park UMC. This message, “When God Shows Up,” was originally taped for a virtual camp service.
Long time friend of The Well Community Scott Coleman brings our Thursday message: “Give Up … but Don’t Give In”! He looks at several Bible stories that illustrate that even when things aren’t going as we would want, God is still in our story. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=juW3odPY7GM
