Loving, caring, sharing. Those are the words listed on the sign in front of Wells Church, but those words are more than a saying or a motto. They embody the spirit and mission of this congregation, which worships and carries on the work of Christ in the inner city of Jackson, Mississippi. All are truly welcome in this place. We consider ourselves as fellow strugglers, a branch of the vine of Christ, seeking to love the Lord, serve others and be faithful witnesses to God through service and love in the name of Jesus Christ. We sincerely welcome you and invite you to join in the loving, caring and sharing that is Wells Church.

January's WellSpring Published

The WellSpring newsletter is now available. Click here to download the pdf.  Email admin@wellschurch.org if you'd like to to have the printed version mailed to your residence.    

In 2016, we honored 90 years of history and looked toward the future of "the church that stayed" (see The Clarion-Ledger article here). For more info about the church's history and ministry of presence, see the June 2016 WellSpring.

As part of the 90th anniversary celebration, we are asking WellsFolk to share their Wells stories and experiences. A form "It Happened at Wells" was distributed with the anniversary worship bulletin and is available here. Please fill it out, save it to your computer and email to admin@wellschurch.org.

Keith Writes about Families in Red Door, Green Door   

    Keith Tonkel has long preached about family, but he has put some of his family stories down in his new book, Red Door, Green Door.

    Amazon describes Keith's new book like this: "Red Door, Green Door  explores families, adoption and being chosen in this delightful and meaningful children's book."

   Keith writes in the prelude: "There are different kinds of doors: big ones, little ones, red doors, green doors, and others. Doors are about coming in and going out. This is about coming in doors..."

   Red Door, Green Door was illustrated by our own Kit Fields and truly is a delightful book in message and illustration.

    Red Door, Green Door was published by The Hour Books with assistance by The Hour's Anthony Thaxton.

   Red Door, Green Door is available at the church office for $12 and can be ordered from Amazon.com. 




Welcome to Wells

We're glad you're looking at us!  We'd love to have you come into our life and love, but that is your choice. We believe it is best to come and look and feel and share. Perhaps then you'll want to take steps toward commitment toward Christ and to us.

We need you and want you. And yet, we know that it is only when you are really ready to come in that it will mean the most to you and then to others.

Please come again.  If we're a source of God's blessing, we're glad about that.  If not, give us another chance...or come and help us do it better. 

We're here to offer God's love and blessing to those called to us, and to serve God in this exciting and challenging time.

-Keith Tonkel
