Jul 8 2018 Josiah / 2 Kings 22-23 / 2 Chronicles 34

Mike Slayden

Though he became king at age 8, much of Josiah’s early life is unknown. But starting in his mid-20s, he restores the temple, renews the covenant with Israel, and finds the law and reads it to the people, leading them to repentance. After many poor examples before him, we find a glimpse in Scripture… More

Jul 1 2018 Asa / 2 Chronicles 14-16

Josh Hawley

God wants to “strongly support those whose heart is completely His” (2 Chronicles 16:9, NASB). King Asa’s life reveals the health of a heart devoted to God and the sickness of a heart hardened to God. More

Jun 24 2018 Hezekiah / 2 Kings 18-20

Mike Cirricione

King Hezekiah is often referred to as the second David for his faithfulness as he ruled Judah. He demolished the idols left over from his father and grandfathers, and led his people to one of the greatest revivals in history. He defeated the mighty Assyrians and conquered death, but pride set in and… More

Jun 17 2018 Monarchy and Divided Kingdom / 1 Samuel 8, 12 / 1 Kings 11

Mike Slayden

Even with the warnings of Samuel that they would regret their decision, the Israelites wanted a king, so the Lord gave them what they asked for. As it had been predicted, their choice brought disaster. There were no good kings in the northern kingdom of Israel, and only a few good ones in the… More

Jun 10 2018 Faithful Leadership / Ephesians 1:22-23 / 1 Timothy 3:1-7 / Titus 1

Brad Bell

This week we continue our education of what active membership at The Well looks like as we explore what members should expect from our leadership. We’ll study biblical authority within the church, what it means to be an elder, how elders are appointed at The Well, and learn how our staff is… More

Jun 3 2018 Church Membership / 1 Corinthians 12:12-20 / Romans 12:4-5

Brad Bell

For us, membership is not about receiving benefits from a denomination for the number of members we have. It’s about the elders knowing who they are responsible for and the pastors knowing who they need to shepherd. This is a holistic attempt to mutually affirm basic orthodox beliefs and say this is… More

May 27 2018 Laboring Well / 2 Thessalonians 3:1-18

Shea Sumlin

Paul’s number one priority was the spread of the gospel, and he asks for prayer that nothing would hinder it. He also speaks to the issue of some of the Thessalonians freeloading off others in the church because they had become idle and quit working. He wanted to make sure they wouldn’t deviate from… More

May 20 2018 Living From the Inside Out / 2 Thessalonians 2:13-17

Josh Hawley

In the midst of relentless temptation, intense persecution and false teaching that even led some Thessalonian believers to think God had abandoned them, the Apostle Paul speaks truth about the love and security that was theirs in Christ. And this redemptive hope is for all who have trusted in Jesus… More

May 13 2018 Tethered to the Truth / 2 Thessalonians 2:1-12

Shea Sumlin

The Thessalonians were starting to believe lies about the return of Christ, thinking maybe He had already come and they had missed it, or their suffering was the wrath that was prophesied to precede His coming. Paul corrects them, explaining that the world would see two major things happen before… More

May 6 2018 Encouraged to Endure / 2 Thessalonians 1:1-12

Brad Bell

Paul’s heart comes through in this letter as he cares for the church at Thessalonica and encourages the people in the midst of their suffering. He speaks to their faith and love that is evidenced in them and that can help them endure the persecution they were experiencing, because they knew their… More
