The Well starts at 6:30P every Wednesday on the Harrison Lane Campus and the 1st Monday of each month on the Roane County Campus. At this time, The Well will meet in the Worship Center on the Harrison Lane to provide ample space for social distancing. Feel free to come when you can and to stay as long as you can! The Well is very simple to participate in. We usually begin by having a short word from the leadership team on the direction of the evening. After an opening prayer, the worship team moves into worship music.
Worship music continues throughout the evening and at appropriate times folks verbally speak prayers they sense the Lord wants released to the group. For the time being this will be done by The Well Team exclusively. Personal prayer between individuals and the Lord can go on throughout the evening. If you are praying for another person, please be sure to ask permission first and wear a mask. There will be hand sanitation stations available. Listening Prayer teams will be available. The Listening Prayer Team will be wearing masks and will remain socially distanced. Freedom Prayer will be available by appointment only, scheduled ahead of time.
Absolutely not! There is never any pressure for anyone to pray out loud if they are not comfortable doing so. Many people come just to soak in the Lord’s presence and pray to/listen to Him privately. For the time being, the microphones will only be used by The Well Team.
The Well is set up so people are free to scatter (and usually do!) all over the room, especially in this time of social distancing. When public prayers are released, we ask the pray-er to come to a microphone to make sure everyone in the room can hear their prayer. This gives others the opportunity to agree with the prayer they just heard and to pray it back to the Lord; it also gives the Holy Spirit the chance to prompt others to pray for the same topic in maybe a different way. Finally, it gives our worship team advance warning that a prayer is about to be released so they can adjust the volume of the music they are playing.
At this time only The Well Team will be releasing public prayers at the microphones. One person will pray using the microphone at a time and only when the worship team is not engaged in “active worship”. Everyone is free to agree verbally with the person praying at the microphone if you so desire. Additionally, there may be times when the worship team may ask all participants to pray verbally to the Lord in unison. Don’t worry about this… it’s not hard to figure out and you’ll be an expert after your first evening!
Any biblically recognized posture that is God honoring is OK! Sitting, standing, kneeling, laying prostrate on the floor, walking around, the lifting of hands and voices, dancing and the waving of flags or banners are all appropriate ways to show honor to God. No one is being judged at “The Well” so feel free to worship the Lord as He prompts you!
Absolutely not! Feel free to invite friends, family, children (parents please use wisdom when bringing the kids), coworkers, neighbors or anyone else you think would be blessed by spending time in the presence of the Lord.
