ABOUT US

WELCOME TO THE WELL

We are a group of people committed to growing as followers of Jesus Christ. Because of that, we are also intent on engaging our Southside Chattanooga community. So you’ll find us serving in the local elementary school, participating with our friends at a neighborhood association event, worshipping together, and doing life together. And that’s because we believe this journey of being a Christ follower happens most effectively in community. Which means you have an open invitation.
You’re always welcome here.

 

ADVENTIST PEACE FELLOWSHIP

The Adventist Peace Fellowship seeks to raise consciousness about the centrality of peacemaking and social justice to the beliefs and heritage of Adventists. We support public service, activism, advocacy, and scholarship that reflects the radical spirit of many Adventist pioneers.

WORSHIP

Our services are God-centered and informal. Praise music and the teaching of scripture are the two primary components of our worship. We also make time for conversation and connection among friends. Childcare is available for children ages 6 months – 6 years.

SMALL GROUPS

DOING LIFE TOGETHER

It’s impossible to cram all of “being the church” into a Sabbath morning worship experience. The Well’s small groups provide the opportunity for ministry, mentoring, spiritual growth, and fellowship. Groups can be long or short term, formal or informal, multi-generational, weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. They can meet in homes, restaurants, or on the hiking/biking trails. You get the idea. Why not give it a try?

CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

RAISING A NEW GENERATION OF WELLIES

The Children’s Ministry of The Well seeks to guide our children to foster friendships, practice compassion, and help them grow to be followers of Christ. We endeavor to engage and serve our community in a variety of ways, intentionally modeling to our children the life to which Jesus calls us.

VOLUNTEER

VOLUNTEER WITH OUR PARTNERS

The Well is built on the foundation of engaging and serving our immediate community. This is what we call being “externally focused.”

 

CALEB

The Well has recently become a member organization of Chattanoogans in Action for Love, Equality, and Benevolence (CALEB). By coming together with other groups that desire to shape the future of our city for the benefit of ALL, we can practice compassion in a systemic way. Watch these interviews to learn more about CALEB, their three areas of emphasis, and how Wellies are serving on CALEB task forces.

VOLUNTEER ON SABBATH MORNING

What takes place on Sabbath mornings requires a communal effort, and volunteering on a monthly basis is something that most Wellies enjoy and value. Check out the ways you can serve in our little church community, and in doing so, grow spiritually and connect meaningfully with others.
