We love looking back at past gatherings and seeing how God has used The Well to encourage women in our community! We believe that when we are properly "filled" we have the ability to bless others by "pouring out". Check out both our gatherings and past pour out opportunities below.
Caroline Saunders had a wonderful message as she led us through Psalm 23. In just 6 short verses, King David packs in some powerful words for us on taking refuge in the Lord. We encourage you to memorize this Psalm and keep those words in your heart!

LEAVING A LEGACY
It was a treat to welcome Trudy Cathy White as our speaker and hear her bring an encouraging message that not only honored the foundation that her mom was in their family, but challenged us all as we leave our own legacy.

UNITY: WE ARE BETTER TOGETHER
In Person + Virtual Gathering ~ November 2020
We are thankful that technology allowed us to gather and connect both in person and virtually. In a world where divisive opinions are becoming our normal, Shannon Scott brought us a timely message on UNITY. Psalm 86:11 says, “Teach me your way, Lord, that I may rely on your faithfulness; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.” We are better together and let it not just be true when we gather, but also when we scatter.
OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD
Pour Out ~ November 2020
Now more than ever, children need great joy! We gave boys and girls in need a tangible expression of God’s love through a gift-filled shoebox. Once the boxes are sent overseas, local believers share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with children as they distribute them. As a result, families are reached, new churches are started, and communities are transformed.
HOPE IN THE UNKNOWN

It was a joy to welcome bible teacher Colleen Searcy from Dallas, TX. Due to the pandemic, this was another virtual gathering and it was so fun to connect with everyone.

NAVIGATING UNCERTAIN TIMES
Virtual Gathering ~ April 2020
As we all know, that was a crazy time. Unfortunately, we did not get to meet in person, but had fun connecting with each other via Instagram live.

WALKING WITH GOD THROUGH THE SEASONS
Gathering ~ January 2020
We all got a good laugh with a dose of encouragement from our beloved speaker Shannon Scott. She joined us from Nashville, but we feel that she is part of The Well family.

The hot chocolate and coffee were consistently being filled and the warmth of the drinks with the welcoming environment was a perfect way to spend a January evening.

JOY IN GRIEF
Gathering ~ September 2019
We welcomed Rachel Faulker Brown back to encourage our ladies. She barely scraped the surface of her story in May and we were left wanting more.

It was a privilege to welcome her back!

What is better than one speaker? A panel of women sharing wisdom from different seasons of life and experiences.

Rachel, a twice widowed mom with young children, shared her powerful testimony and how she found true comfort in Jesus. Khalilah, a working mom, shared with us how to manage our priorities.
