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 – 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! […]

Posted on: May 8th, 2017 by Dave Terrell

Welcome to You Asked For It! We will be posting questions and answers to questions that didn’t fit into a weekend service here on our blog. Here we go with our first one! Does the pregnancy information center that The Well backs, offer abortions every Monday? I ask to clarify what protesters were saying on […]

Fear or Fulfillment

Posted on: August 29th, 2016 by Michael Larson

Fulfillment. It seems illusive, something impossibly out of reach, something seen or heard of in movies where millions are made, or lives are saved, or man lands on the moon. But to us, those of us living normal lives, in normal homes, driving normal cars to our normal jobs, eating normal dinners and watching Netflix […]

Worship of the Daily

Posted on: July 22nd, 2016 by Michael Larson

The daily grind. The everyday. Day-to-day. Just another day… There are things of routine in our lives, things that happen often, with regularity, with habitual consistency, at times entirely lacking forethought or intentionality. We breathe. We eat. We sleep. We talk and walk and work and see and hear and smell and taste. All of these […]

Not Now!

Posted on: May 11th, 2016 by Jerry Shaffer

Not now.  I say that a lot!  But I have four kids.  Four kids who all want the latest technology, to eat out four times a week, need new clothes constantly, and have an endless stream of dances, games, graduations, spring break trips, health, and automobile emergencies.  So for me, “not now” isn’t a ploy […]

Deep Dive

Posted on: April 28th, 2016 by Jerry Shaffer

“Deep Dive” has become one of those cultural buzz phrases.  Typically it just means anytime your intent is to go further into subject or idea or process than normal.  So you can deep dive a brainstorming session, to push the envelopes of creativity or possibilities, or you can deep dive data, one of the original uses […]

Worshipping At Home

Posted on: April 12th, 2016 by Shari McCord

Have you ever considered the impact that music, and specifically worship music, has on your environment and everyone in it? I have worship music playing almost constantly in my house and 24/7 in both my boys bedrooms. Why? I love music, of course, and worship music is what I do, but it’s bigger than that. […]
