Frequently Asked Questions about worshiping at The Well:
How do I get there?
We are located near the intersection of Sontheimer Road and N. Thibodeaux. GPS might not help you find us, so we recommend using our driving directions.
Where should I park?
There are several spots in our gravel parking lot reserved for guests, so feel free to use one of those! We also have several handicap spaces near the entrance. If you need some extra help, pull up under our covered area at the side entrance, and one of our greeters will valet park for you!
Is the building handicap accessible?
Yes, it is easy to get into the building from our main entrance, which is surrounded by 4 handicap parking spaces. Our entire building is one floor, and we have large stalls in each restroom for your convenience. We also make sure to maintain at least a 36" aisle on one side of the sanctuary so that everyone can navigate around the sanctuary for communion.
What should I wear?
If you are comfortable, we are comfortable! You will see everything from polos and khakis to jeans and t-shirts (and Saints jerseys during football season)! Our pastor and worship team usually wear jeans.
Will there be an opportunity to meet people?
We serve coffee and refreshments from 10:00 to 10:30, so plan to stay late or come early. Our members have nametags to make mingling a little easier, and you are welcome to put on a nametag when you arrive.
Will I have to introduce myself during worship?
We do not ask guests to stand up or raise their hands or call attention to themselves in any way during worship. The only thing we ask you to do is visit our Connections Table on your way out so that you can pick up a gift as a thank you for worshiping with us!
What kind of music do you play?
Our worship band plays mostly current Christian songs that you would hear on radio stations like K-LOVE. We also have some traditional hymns set to a more modern beat in our repertoire. And you might even hear some secular songs that relate to that week's message. We've been known to play U2, Alison Krauss, and even The Who!
I'm not Methodist. Can I still take communion?
We celebrate communion (also known as the Eucharist or the Lord's Supper) at every worship service. The great thing about the United Methodist Church is that we serve the bread and the juice from an open table, meaning you do not have to be a member of our church, or any church, to participate. If you are in need of the grace of Jesus Christ, then you are invited to receive. We take communion by intinction, which means we take a piece of bread, dip it into the cup, then consume the elements together.
What do you offer for my children?
Children are always welcome in worship, no matter what age. There is a nursery available for children 4 and under. Pagers are available to parents with children in the nursery. School-aged children are invited to attend children's worship, which begins right after the children's moment in the worship service. Children return to worship in time for communion. For children wishing to stay in worship the entire time, there are children's bulletins and worship bags with some activities for them. Ask a greeter for one!
