We want to DO, GIVE and BE MORE! Here’s a few places Well House Church currently serves and a list of some very good nonprofits around Madison, Hendersonville, Goodlettsville, and Nashville that we recommend you checking out. We encourage you to get involved by volunteering individually, as a family or with your House Groups. If you don’t see something that stirs your passions or peaks your curiosity find what that is and get involved…Do MORE. Give MORE. Be MORE.

Also stay tuned for our next church-wide HOUSE PARTY. That’s right… party! When we serve our community, it’s always going to be a party!


Gateway Elementary

What: Partnering with a local neighborhood school is high priority because it affords us endless opportunities to make a difference in the lives of people in our immediate community. Well House is partnering with Gateway Elementary for the 2017-18 school year. Gateway was the perfect fit for Well House because of the proximity to our meeting space (a mile from Goodlettsville Middle School) and size of school (less than 300 students). Not only does this give Well House an opportunity and a place to serve physical needs, it also allows us to build meaningful relationships with their staff, faculty and student body. Consider how you can be a part of filling their largest need of tutors, readers and mentors throughout the year. There is no minimum time requirement, serve as much as you feel you have time. In addition to tutoring, think about how you can be a part of Trunk-or-Treat, Fall festivals, Christmas Holiday activities, Spring Field Days and other Gateway sponsored events throughout the year.

Who: Tutoring & Mentors must be 15 or older – Special Events volunteers can be all ages.

Location: Madison

What: Young Life doesn’t start with a program. It starts with adults concerned enough about kids to go to them, on their turf and in their culture, building bridges of authentic friendship. These relationships don’t happen overnight — they take time, patience, trust and consistency.

So Young Life leaders log many hours with kids — where they are, as they are. Leaders faithfully attend football practices, mingle with teenagers in the lunch room and show up just about anywhere kids hang out. We listen to their stories and learn what’s important to them because we genuinely care about their joys, triumphs, heartaches and setbacks.

We believe in the power of presence. Younglife leaders are trained to mentor Middle School and High School students on a regular basis

Who: Young adults and up
