You Asked For It – How do YOU know there’s a God?

Posted on: May 31st, 2017 by Tony Dahlin

Today’s question is definitely common and as about as direct as they come: “How do YOU know there’s a God?” My answer to this question is very similar to a story found in John 9. Jesus performed a miracle where he gave sight to a man that had been born blind. The healing caused a […]

You Asked For It – Living In The Promises of God

Posted on: May 31st, 2017 by Michael Larson

How do I live in the promises of God every day with confidence? It’s incredible to see the depth of the promises of God, and it is as amazing to understand the sheer number of promises, promises that cover our entire lives. God promises to give us a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11), to […]

You Asked For It – Week 4

Posted on: May 29th, 2017 by Michael Larson

Have you had conversations with people who have communicated that they believe your views/faith to be old-fashioned, narrow-minded or intolerant? What has been your response? What does the Bible say your response should be? Do you feel like you can speak to the hope of Christ in your life? When have you shared this with […]

You Asked For It – Why Can’t We Rock Out More?

Posted on: May 23rd, 2017 by Shari McCord

Why can’t we rock out more? How about a series on the influence of the Fender Stratocaster on biblical teaching? Thank you for asking such a fun question! Worship can be any style, it is not limited to just one style. The beauty of the church is when all different people with their different styles, skills, […]

You Asked For It – Have You Ever Questioned Your Faith?

Posted on: May 18th, 2017 by Michael Larson

Have you ever questioned your faith? What were the circumstances or situation? I’ve grown up in faith. My father was the pastor, my mother was a worship leader and we spent a good chunk of every week under the church’s roof. I was a good kid. I didn’t spend my junior high years sulking (much) […]

You Asked For It – Parenting

Posted on: May 17th, 2017 by Shannon Hansen

“How can a parent engage in spiritual warfare on behalf of their children? Please be specific. Thanks.” Thank you for your question! As a children’s pastor, much of my time is spent in prayer for the spiritual well being of all the kids at The Well. I know the world throws a lot at our […]

You Asked For It – Week 2

Posted on: May 15th, 2017 by Jerry Shaffer

Scriptures: James 1:5; Matthew 6:14-15; Luke 23:34; Luke 6:28; Matthew 5:43-44; Colossians 3:13 Overview: BE CAREFUL!  Words have power.  As much as sharing your story can create space for healing, rehearsing a hurt over and over can add fuel to a fire of resentment or bitterness.  And the way we respond as brothers and sisters […]

You Asked For It – How do I share my testimony if I have always believed?

Posted on: May 13th, 2017 by Shari McCord

“If I believe in Jesus, but I can’t remember what my life was like before Christ, how do I share my testimony? Am I even a believer?” This is a great question, and honestly it’s one I asked myself for a long time. I grew up in a Christian home; my entire family went to […]

You Asked For It – Small Groups

Posted on: May 12th, 2017 by Michael Larson

“Can you address how to respond when your small group disbands? I’ve tried 3 small groups at the Well and they have all fallen apart for different reasons. It makes me feel a bit like something is wrong with me since small groups are praised so much.” What a great question, thanks for asking it! […]
