Small Groups


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.

Below is a list of current and upcoming small groups taking place within Church at the Well. It will be updated as groups end and new ones begin. If you are interested in organizing or leading a small group, contact

We also have an email forum for those who would like to communicate unofficial specific needs or events with the church and other forum members. Typical postings include things such as spontaneous get-to-gethers, people looking for help moving, giving away goods, etc. To sign up for the forum contact Sherry Chang at

Community Group (led by Jord’n Bay)

We will meet on a weekly basis to gather for community. We will popcorn read an entire book of the Bible each week. We will discuss either what was read or what is on our hearts that week. We will see if this method is a good way to build community; if it is not we can move onto using the sermon questions or coming up with different methods to try to build community.
