Is It Really Free?!?

Posted on: February 28th, 2014 by Jerry Shaffer

Alright I admit it, I have become a skeptic! For years I have led or participated in groups where we would go out and do random acts of kindness, through giveaways or service projects.  It used to always confuse me that people would turn things down like free gas, free coffee, free water bottles, or […]

At Just the Right Time?!?

Posted on: February 25th, 2014 by Jerry Shaffer

In the apostle Paul’s ancient letter to the churches of Galatia (a region in modern south central Turkey), he said, “…when the right time came, God sent his son,…” (Gal. 4:4.)  He built up to this with the idea that Jesus and all He would bring was the fulfillment of a promise God had made […]

Posted on: February 25th, 2014 by Dave Terrell

John, Ric, and Dave talk about Valentine’s Day, a weird movie experience, The Well’s skate night, and John introduced Micah to a classic song. They talk about Scruff McGruff and Nessy the Loch Ness monster. Dave thinks you’ll like Andy Mineo’s newest album. Ric and Dave liked the Robocop reboot and we finish everything up […]

“To Be” or “To Do” That Is the Question….

Posted on: February 19th, 2014 by Jerry Shaffer

Being or doing… that is the struggle in all of life, but uniquely in faith.  Everything in life, and most of the world, not to mention church history, attests to the idea that we are supposed to “do” or “not do” things to stay out of trouble, to get ahead in life, to make people […]

#34: Love In The Time Of Flappy Bird

Posted on: February 14th, 2014 by Dave Terrell

John, Ric, Bri, and Dave discuss Valentine’s day and all it’s fun. They mourn the death of Flappy Bird and another animal they found out about. Dave thinks that John Legend’s “Love In The Future” is a great listen on Valentine’s Day and John thinks you’ll really enjoy The Lego Movie. Happy Valentine’s Day!

A Body Divided can NOT stand

Posted on: February 13th, 2014 by Jerry Shaffer

Matthew 12:25 New Living Translation (NLT) 25 Jesus knew their thoughts and replied, “Any kingdom divided by civil war is doomed. A town or family splintered by feuding will fall apart. We read this and hear the words of Abraham Lincoln during our country’s own dark civil war, but the implication of Jesus’ statement are much more relevant […]

Speaking out of both sides of your mouth…

Posted on: February 11th, 2014 by Jerry Shaffer

It is interesting what God has to say about us.  On one hand He pronounces that we are helplessly broken, fundamentally flawed, and indelibly stained.  The ideas that set behind these words make it impossible for us to assume that there is any hope for change.  And what’s worse, He calls all those in our […]

#33: All Olympics, All The Time

Posted on: February 10th, 2014 by Dave Terrell

John, Ric, Bri, and Dave talk about The Well’s Super Bowl service and share some of the cool stories from the day. They also talk about the Olympics, those awful uniforms and everyone’s favorite sport. And how can you talk about the Winter Olympics without mention the Jamaican bobsled team? Dave thinks you will like […]

BIG things headed your way… We have two really important events coming up you won’t want to miss.  There are always more ways to live out our mission here at The Well than we can promote at our Weekend Services.  But I wanted you to hear about these great opportunities from me. So check them […]

Letting Go…

Posted on: February 4th, 2014 by Jerry Shaffer

The first Century Christian leader Paul said, “Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize of my calling.” There is a truism that seems to contradict Paul’s thinking, “If you don’t know where you come from, you can’t […]
