Love, Dating, & Marriage

Approximately half of American adults are single (never married, divorced, or widowed), but most date and might marry at some point in the future. The other half of U.S. adults are married, many happily, but there are others who wish their relationship was healthier and more fulfilling.

There are plenty of forces at work in our society that make dating difficult and that threaten to pull romantic relationships apart. From the challenges of online dating, to toxic relationship advice on social media, to temptations, to unresolved conflict, starting a healthy relationship or making an existing relationship work can be difficult and sometimes painful.

During the brand new series, Love, Dating, & Marriage, we will explore wisdom from the Bible and from leading relationship counselors about how to make your current or future romantic relationship the healthiest and happiest it can be.

Bloom Where You're Planted

A brand new series, Bloom Where You're Planted, begins May 19.

Maybe you have been hoping and praying for circumstances to change, but they just won't change quickly enough. A relationship, your finances, a job, a health condition, a recent loss, etc. might feel like a hostile environment that tempts you to wither and fade. We wonder if God is even listening to our prayers, and we wonder how much longer we can stand the uncomfortable heat.

Some plants thrive in a hostile environment because they adapted to it. In other words, they changed even if the circumstances did not, and they are able to survive and even thrive where no one thought possible.

Even when you're tempted to wither, during Bloom Where You're Planted, you will learn the secret to surviving and even thriving in a hostile environment.


May 19 | Don't Face It Alone
May 26 | Everything Is An Opportunity to Grow
June 2  | Stay Focused On Your Purpose
June 9  | Share Your Secret

Join us beginning May 19 for a brand new series, Bloom Where You're Planted!

Ryan Gear Welcome


Welcome to The Well.

If you're looking for a church where thinking, compassionate people can find a spiritual home and cultivate a Jesus-inspired life...

You are welcome here, and so are your questions and doubts.

You don't have to check your brain at the door, because if God created you with a brain, then it's okay to use it in church. The Bible and science are not enemies, and The Well is an open and affirming church, because we believe in interpreting the Bible wisely.

And, ultimately, following Jesus is about how you live and love. The Well is a place to express both your faith and your doubts, so you can grow to become your best self, and partner with God make a difference with your life.

An example of what we mean by that was captured in recent articles about The Well in the East Valley Tribune here and the SanTan Sun News here.

If that sounds like the kind of community you're interested in, we look forward to seeing you this Sunday!

Ryan Gear
Lead Pastor

The Well meets Sundays at 10am, and services last about 60 minutes. Well KIDS (infant- 5th grade) is offered during the service.

The Well is a place of hope, meaning, and purpose where we can be inspired, grow as followers of Jesus Christ, and be a part of something bigger.

More and more people feel like they no longer fit in the type of Christianity they see today. It can be:

Too unlike Jesus
Too out of touch, and
Too closed to the questions ordinary people have about faith.

That's why we started The Well.

We believe that following Jesus should be refreshing, positive, and pull us together instead of pushing us apart.

The mission of The Well is to create a community where thinking, compassionate people can find a spiritual home and cultivate a Jesus-inspired life. 

The Well is a place where:

You are free to express both your faith and your doubts.

You can spiritually grow to become your best self.

And you can partner with God to make a difference with your life.

You'll experience practical teaching from the Bible that will give you hope and wisdom for your everyday life, inspiring worship music, an excellent children's ministry, and the love of a church family who welcomes you with no hidden agenda.

No matter who you are, you are welcome at The Well. We cheer each other on because none of us is perfect, and everyone belongs.

Something different is needed now more than ever. If this sounds like the kind of community you're looking for...

Welcome home.
