Our "Ministry of Presence" takes many forms.

Galloway Elementary School – We are involved with the children, faculty and staff at this inner-city school, our across-the-street neighbor.       

Tuesday Neighborhood Ministries – The food pantry regularly serves around 200 clients, providing a basic bag of groceries once a week.  It has also served as a point of contact for persons needing help with obtaining state-issued IDs, assistance in getting medical prescriptions filled and other basic needs.    Nurses from Bailey Avenue Health Education Foundation are on hand to give blood pressure checks, and very often friends from the Good Samaritan Center are available to help guests with other needs.   

Community Luncheons--Four times a year we sponsor a Community Luncheon, offering our neighbors home-cooked food and an informative program on health and safety issues.   Some WellsFolk cook and serve the food, others come and visit with our guests, establishing bonds that enrich their lives almost as much as they enrich ours.

State Veterans Home--A team from Wells, led by Bill and Brenda Duckworth, holds services every Sunday at the Mississippi State Veterans Home.

Prison Ministries--WellsFolk are actively involved in Kairos prison ministry, which conducts weekend spiritual retreats inside state correctional facilities.  

MLK Parade--Walking in a parade once a year might not seem like much of a ministry, but our participation in the annual Martin Luther King, Jr., celebration is appreciated.

J. J. Allen Medical Fund--This fund, administered by a committee from Wells Church, provides grants to help the families of children with serious medical problems.  Applications for grants of up to $1,000 should be sent to admin@wellschurch.org,  with "Medical Fund" in the subject line.
