"90 for 90" Renovation Project to Honor Service of Tonkel Family
Wells has always preferred to invest in ministry rather than bricks and mortar. However, we do have building needs to serve ministry and there is a major need now.
The kitchen and fellowship hall area are in disrepair and in
grave need of renovation and updating. Plans are being developed to reform the downstairs area of the church into a more functional area for serving the many ministries that occur there. The renovation will include a kitchen renovation to replace appliances and cabinetry as well as revamping the fellowship hall and downstairs bathroom area. For more details, click here.
Wells has just celebrated its 90th year of ministry on Bailey Avenue in Jackson. The new Tonkel Family Ministry Center will help ensure the work at Wells continues effectively for the next 90 years. Fundraising began Jan. 1, 2017, and will be underway for 90 days. With your support, this “90 for 90” campaign will provide all funding needed for this important project.
The new area will be dedicated to our pastor, Keith Tonkel, his late wife, Pat, and family in thanks of more than four decades of service to this church and this community.
Please consider a contribution to the Wells "90 for 90" fund for the Tonkel family ministry center. To donate online, click here.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
