Guests: What To Expect

Loving, caring, sharing. Those are the words 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 that worships and carries on the work of Christ in the inner city of Jackson. Everyone is very welcome in this grace place. We consider ourselves as fellow strugglers, a branch of the vine of Christ, seeking to love God, serve others and be faithful witnesses 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.

Our hope is that the frequently asked questions below will help you connect with us easily and make your visit more enjoyable and meaningful.  If you have additional questions or can't find what you need, please email.
