Jacob's Well

Why the name Jacob's Well?

There was a well outside the village of Sychar in ancient Samaria. Jesus stopped there with his disciples. While they were in the village buying food Jesus had an encounter with a Samaritan woman.

He was thirsty and asked her for a drink. She was surprised, not many people wanted to talk to her. She had a history of broken relationships. At the point of desperation she had completely given up on the idea of marriage. Jesus wanted her to know that it didn't have to be that way. (See John 4:1-26 for full story.)

Maybe you can relate. Have you made decisions in your past that you regret? You don't have to be defined by them.

What if church was not just somewhere to go on special days?

What if church was safe and the people really cared about you?

Would you risk giving it another chance?

Jacob's Well wants to be such a place. We exist to connect people to Jesus, to provide a family-like community and equip them to grow in Christ-like character in order to expand God's Kingdom.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
— John 3:16-17 ESV
