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 will be serving with us by providing a meal at our Anaheim gathering on Monday, June 26th! We look forward to see how the Lord grows this new friendship.Read more
The Rummage Sale is upon us! This is a great volunteer opportunity to help NorthEast of the Well, and our partner, St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church. Every year, residents of the Newport community and beyond flock to St. Andrew's 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, among other missions. Volunteers will receive lunch and a few free items of their choice. :)Read more
On May 20 & 21, we were honored to be highlighted in all 4 services at St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church in Newport Beach. St. Andrew's was the first church to support - and actually LAUNCH - the ministry of NorthEast of the Well. Once a year, they invite us to update their congregation on what God is doing at NorthEast, and provide new ways for their congregation to get involved. Throughout the services, 5 different women shared testimonies, 3 joined the SAPRES worship team, and Pastor Laura Suk presented the vision and current needs. We were proud to have a presence in the plaza, displaying a table full of God's grace!Read more
In March 2017, NorthEast of the Well took its very first trip to Israel. The group consisted of community members, board members, and ministry partners. Through the years, it has been our passion to disciple, raise up, and empower others with the Word of God. We knew in Israel, men and women would be able to see His Word come to life. Many in our group have pasts marked with addiction, abuse and incarceration - we have seen Christ radically change their lives. Quite literally, God took us from jail to Jerusalem! In May, the group connected again for a team reunion, celebrating all that took place on the trip.Read more
