The Well at STSA

An ordinary place where extraordinary things happen 

This is our guest-friendly “second service,” which takes place weekly after the Divine Liturgy. Each week, we discuss relevant, thought-provoking topics that challenge us to understand our faith more personally and engage in it more practically. We aim to communicate the depth and riches of our ancient faith, in simple and understandable ways that are relatable to the modern world.

the name 

The name comes from the story of the Samaritan woman in chapter four of the Gospel of John. To her, the well was an ordinary place that took on extraordinary meaning and significance through the encounter she had there with a Man named Jesus. She showed up at the well one way and left completely different– transformed on both the inside and the outside.

The DC Metro Area is occupied by busy metro stations, crowded malls, packed office buildings, and high-rises full of people far from home. That’s why we’re here. The goal of The Well in Arlington today is to have the same impact a certain well had in Samaria 2,000 years ago; to become an ordinary place where people meet Jesus and lives are changed forever.

UNHURRIED: Not Built For Speed

January  2023

We’re all busy. Some of us can't remember the last time we rested or had free time. Our busyness can feel productive but it’s not; it’s a toxic distraction – one that saps life out of us physically, emotionally, and spiritually.  But do we even have a choice? 

Part 1 Handout: There's gotta be a better way

Part 2 Handout: Silence & Solitude

Part 3 Handout: Sabbath
