7 Ways to Partner doing life together as we follow Jesus

As a church we believe the example of Jesus show us we live out our Spiritual walk in community. Those that put their faith and trust in Jesus become part of the family of God called the church. We believe that we grow spiritually when we walk together as family. 

Psalm 92:12-14 says:

The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green

We believe when we intentionally plant and commit ourselves in to a local church family we spiritually grow and see our lives look more like Jesus. 

Partnering is our way of expressing what that can look like. 

Below are the 7 ways we encourage those who wish to plant themselves in the family of The Well to engage in. 

If you want to be a partner with us in the life and mission of this Church then we ask in the last 5 weeks have you been able to engage in at least 5 of these Intentional ways of doing life together as we follow Jesus.

Partnering at the well

The first letter of each of our ways to partner spells the word WELLIES,  we want to walk together wearing the right footwear, with the  right footwear you feel you can tackle anything, the bible says

…put shoes on your feet so that you are ready to spread the good news of peace. 

  Eph 6:15

The early baptists had a saying that they made as a promise to those they walked with as on spiritual journey. 

"To walk together in ways know and yet to be made known" 

Partnering is intentionally walking together as family in the highs and lows.
