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

Abby Carroll is hosting a community group called Learning to Pray. The journey of the Christian life is a journey of prayer, and this small group is an opportunity to come alongside fellow journeyers as we explore what it means to take time to be with God. We will read and discuss a few short selections from Richard Foster’s Prayer: Finding Your Heart’s True Home and investigate what scripture says about prayer. Most importantly, we will spend time during each gathering praying, using a variety of approaches to prayer from Christian tradition. Topics include but are not limited to simple prayer, praying scripture, listening to God, prayer journaling, silent prayer, and praying for/with others. Whether you have prayed for many years or are just beginning to pray, you are welcome to join us as we grow together.

Date: Tuesdays starting March 24th through May 5th

Time: 7 PM

Location: The Lehman’s home, Williston
