NorthEast held a home reception last weekend to introduce new people to our ministry in a comfortable, intimate setting. The afternoon included a short presentation of testimonies and worship, delicious d'orderves and time to socialize. A special thanks to Don & Sandra Ayres for hosting and endorsing our ministry.
NorthEast of the Well held its 2nd Annual Fall Gala on September 23, 2017 at The Oasis Center in Corona del Mar. Hosted by our Women at the Well Auxiliary, the night included dinner, dancing, and oh-so-many-ways to partner with our ever-expanding ministry. Our efforts were met with overwhelming success - even exceeding our goals! God is good, and we're ready for where He'll take us this next year. Thank you to every person who planned, volunteered, and gave on behalf of NorthEast of the Well!
Just held our 6th Annual Discipleship Retreat! 3 groups of ladies came together from our Long Beach, Newport and Anaheim sites. We spend the night away to intentionally focus on a common goal: strengthening one another in Christ. Through meals shared, devotions led, and prayers offered we were blessed by this special time away - thank you to a group of donors that made it possible.
You know it's summer when ... the baptisms begin! We were thrilled to baptize 5 women from our community this week: 2 ladies from Prototypes Recovery (Tustin), 1 graduate from Heritage House North (Anaheim), 1 long-time community member, and 1 staff member. Each of these women have made an intentional decision to leave the old life behind, and follow Christ into their future. As an outward sign of their inner transformation, they took a public stand and a purposeful plunge! We see them walk out their faith by participating in small group discipleship, serving at weekly community gatherings, and helping us with local outreach. We are proud of each and every one, and praise God for the lives He is continually changing and calling. If you are interested in being baptized, please contact our office 714.953.WELL - the next Baptism Celebration is scheduled for the end of July.
We were excited to have the opportunity to present our ministry at Reunion Church on June 4, 2017. A church plant of ROCKHARBOR Costa Mesa, Reunion Church holds its gatherings at First Presbyterian Church in Santa Ana.
Pastor Laura Suk was invited to give an overview of the ministry during the 5;30pm service, during which she shared with the Reunion community our values and our ministry goals.
A group of Reunion volunteers is planning a meal for our Anaheim gathering on Monday, June 26th! We look forward to see how the Lord grows this wonderful friendship!
A great volunteer opportunity to help NorthEast of the Well! We need volunteers for the upcoming Rummage Sale at St. Andrew's. Visitors from around the state flock to St. Andrew's during the annual Rummage Sale to find treasures among the donated clothing, furniture, jewelry, electronics, art and other items. A portion of the proceeds will be gifted to our ministry. Volunteers will receive a few free items from sale, and lunch is included.Read more
