The official ribbon-cutting for “The Well,” a new faith community and recovery center in Leitchfield, was held on Tuesday, June 16.
Located at 208 West Main St., the primary goal of The Well “is to help people find their deeper purpose in Christ,” said The Well Associate Pastor Todd Brown.
Leitchfield United Methodist Church (LUMC) purchased and performed the construction on the building that now houses The Well, but The Well is intended to be a separate faith community for people who, ideally, do not already attend another church or who may not have attended church in a while, said LUMC Senior Pastor David Harting.
“There’s no need for previous church experience,” said Brown, who added that church services will start being held at The Well beginning in August on Sundays at 6 p.m.
Harting said he hopes the later start time may provide another option for those unable to attend church on Sunday mornings.
Additionally, The Well will house Celebrate Recovery, “a Christ-centered, biblically-based recovery ministry that points all participants to the redemptive power found in the gospel.”
“No one’s perfect,” said Brown. “It’s all right to make mistakes, but everyone has a purpose.”
Celebrate Recovery will also begin in August and will be held every Wednesday evening beginning at 5:15 p.m.
In addition to Brown, The Well will be staffed by Shane Raymer, who will perform music, and Celebrate Recovery Director Debbie Childress.
