Small Groups

article_image_full

At Church at the Well, we believe that many of the most important moments in our lives take place in small communities that meet during the week. Sunday is a great time to come together for worship, teaching, and fellowship, but we believe that gathering in smaller communities throughout the week is just as important, if not more so.

If you are interested in organizing or leading a small group contact abby@wellchurchvt.com.

If a Small Group you are interested in is full, please contact Abby@wellchurchvt.com about other options.

Morning Prayer – Wednesdays 7:00 – 8:00 am on Zoom, February 15th – April 5th

This Too Shall Last
Monday evenings 7pm – 8:30pm
March 6th – April 3rd
Sometimes we find ourselves in circumstances we did not choose, wondering when our hard
things will end and where grace will come if they don’t. Together, we can encounter God’s
grace in the middle, where living with suffering that lingers can mean receiving God’s
presence that lasts. While this small group is not a book study, we will be using KJ Ramsey’s book, This Too Shall
Last as a companion guide for our time together.

Shabbat Small Group

5pm on Fridays March 10th, April 14th, May 12th, West Bolton (Jericho/Richmond area)

“Sanctifying the Sabbath is part of our imitation of God, but it also becomes a way to find God’s presence . . . Shabbat renews the soul and we rediscover who we are.” -Abraham Joshua Heschel and Susannah Heschel, The Sabbath.

This open small group is a multi-generational invitation to partake in a simple Shabbat meal at the Andersen family’s home. Come for every gathering or join us when you can. We will light candles, saying Sabbath blessings in a short short service, break bread (quite literally), drink juice or wine, and together usher in a 24 hour rest period set apart for celebration, joy and remembrance. We’d love for you to join us! All ages are welcome—the more variety in age the better! Please register to attend. Questions? Contact Meg Mazel Andersen at mazelmeg@gmail.com.

A couple fine print notes: 

-Please let us know of dietary preferences, and we will be happy to accommodate.

-Sometimes the driveway gets slippery in winter, and without AWD, it will require a short uphill walk (about 0.3 miles) to make it! 

-We have a couple of friendly cats who you won’t see much of – but we do apologize for this if you are allergic. 

-When registering, you do not need to register children under the age of 4 (because we won’t include them in the head count for max capacity).

The Pursuit of God
Starting March 9th in Shelburne
Alternate Thursdays, 9:00 – 7:30pm
Questions? Contact Jon at lifelinesguide@gmail.com
As our church continues to focus on the theme of “Being with Jesus” this year, Jenn and Jon Ayers (Shelburne) will be hosting a six-session small group exploring the short classic, The Pursuit of God, by A.W. Tozer. When we gather, we’ll open with relevant scripture, take time to pray for one another, and of course discuss the book, which participants will have spent time reading between sessions. (In our experience, the book is simple, beautifully written, and profound—a good read!) During our gatherings, we’ll also make space for group members to share as they feel comfortable both how the book and the group experience are impacting them. We look forward to a rich growth experience where relationships can go deeper.
