Jesus and the Samaritan Woman
The name for our Women’s Ministry: Women at the Well is inspired by John 4:1-28, when Jesus meets a woman at a well in Samaria. After a conversation that transpired between Jesus and the Samaritan woman, we learn that Jesus knew everything there was to know about her, he shared the gospel (the good news) to her, revealing himself, and that all this happened by a divine appointment.
Who Do We Want to Reach?
You. You who are new to learning anything about Jesus, the Bible, Christianity, etc. You who may be wanting to return to church after a long time away for whatever reason or reasons you may have. You who have been here all along, faithful, and committed (however that may look like). And you who might be anywhere between or around any of that.
We believe in a God who is here for you, drawing you in, and calling you into His presence. You who He loves so deeply and rejoices when you answer His call.
Our mission begins with the Great Commission: “Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe everything I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” Matthew 28:19-20
Luke 10:2 quotes Jesus when He says, “The harvest is abundant but the workers are few. Therefore, pray to the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into his harvest.”
We believe that as Christians, we need to be willing to be those workers. Our hope and prayer is for Women at the Well to be one of the many avenues and opportunities you would have to be able to do that. Whether it’s inviting people to our events, Bible studies, or meeting others here and going out for coffee together on your own.
How Can We Be Inspired by the Samaritan Woman?
At this stage in her life, the Samaritan woman was considered an outcast. She is living with the 5th partner that she has had. To avoid people, she would draw water from the well around noon (the hottest part of the day), while everyone else drew water in the cooler parts of the day (early morning or evening). In addition to this, Jews and Samaritans did NOT associate with each other. When needing to travel past Samaria, Jews would travel around Samaria. What Jesus did was intentionally travel into Samaria to speak with this Samaritan woman at the well.
What we can glean from this is that the events in our lives that lead us to God are not by mistake or coincidence, but by divine appointments that the Lord has planned. There will be some of you who are at a point in your life where you are the woman at the well. Just like her, we hope and pray that you would be eager to learn about the living water and be filled with the eagerness to call and tell others regardless of what may be thought of you like she did with the people in her town.
Then there will also be some of you who are at a point in your life where your call is to incarnate Jesus. Following His example, we hope and pray that you would be willing and intentional to share the gospel and disciple others.
Wherever you are at, you don’t have to do it alone. Our goal is to cultivate a community of support in accordance with the Bible, the true Word of God.
