Come to “The Well”
Tuesday morning I attended a breakfast that highlighted the work of "The Well."
The Well Community is a Dallas Baptist Association church that ministers primarily to adults with severe mental illness. As far as we know, it is the only church of its kind anywhere. (They've been highlighted in People Magazine!)
The Well started as a DBA-sponsored church plant ten years ago. My family has had the privilege of being active members from "day one" when we started meeting around a campfire in a church parking lot one Sunday in January 2002. Now the church is part worship service, part ministry center, part job-training and LARGE part healthy and spiritual community for the members.
My favorite worship experiences are consistently at the Well. I wish you could hear the Well Singers–filled with lives made joyful by Jesus–sing out "Come to the Well" as they did this week.
I think you'll be encouraged by this short, extremely well done video about three of those lives.
