Drops From the Well – A great gift of our Lord is the chance to drink deep from His living water. Reading the Word of God on a consistent basis is at the heart of our faithful obedience as followers of Jesus. We read His word to know Him better. And yet, for so many, this is a challenging task. Daily readings get lost in the shuffle of life.   More than a verse-a-day, Drops from the Wellfocuses on sending out one key point or Gospel kernel with the hopes that you read and reflect on that drop each day of the week.  To sign up to receive this Drop by weekly email or text message:  Via SMS: Text “@dropswell” to 81010 or Via email:  Drops From the Well

For Drops in Focus – As with most things, version 2.0 builds upon the initial idea and makes it better. We would like to introduce you to Drops in Focus. The concept is similar, but the fruit is much riper. Perhaps you, like many, receive numerous text messages throughout the week. It doesn’t take long for Drops from the Well to become buried under a long list of other messages. Our team continued to dream of ways to keep the Word right under our noses. Drops in Focus utilizes the same technology, but instead of sending the verse in a “text,” it is delivered to your phone in a picture image each week. The goal is to save this image to your phone and set it as your lock screen image. We would like to invite you to join us on this journey as Drops from the Living Water come into the focus of our lives.  To sign up to receive this lock screen image – Via SMS: Text “@dropsfocus” to 81010  or Via email:  Drops in Focus
