The Well at STSA
The Well is STSA's second Sunday service beginning at 11:30am. It’s a place to come for a splash of weekly inspiration and it is the best service to attend if it’s your first time visiting an Orthodox church. Each week at The Well, we dive deep into relevant, thought-provoking topics that challenge us to grow in our faith, and help us work through our doubts. While you are enjoying The Well, your children can benefit from our great children and youth programs for kids ages pre-school through high school.
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 called Jesus. She showed up at the well one way, but left completely different– completely transformed on both the inside and the outside.
Arlington is occupied by busy metro stations, crowded malls, packed office buildings, and high-rises full of lonely people far from home. That’s why we’re here. The goal of The Well in Arlington today is to have the same effect a certain well had in Samaria 2,000 years ago – to become an ordinary place where people meet Jesus and lives are changed forever.
