Welcome to The Well, a student ministry of Arab First UMC. 

Christ Jesus said “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink. He who believes in me, as the Scripture has said, out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:37-38)

The Well offers opportunities for students to learn, grow, and connect with Christ while creating meaningful relationships in the church. We are on a mission to create disciples who make disciples.

The Well students meet on Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM for a dedicated time to study the Word with their peers in designated age groups (grades 6-8 and grades 9-12). They also meet on Wednesday nights at 6PM. 


Let’s do life together-- join a small group on Sunday nights at 6 PM to grow in your relationship with Jesus alongside your peers. The Well students meet in host homes to share a meal together and to dive deeper into the ins and outs of discipleship.


The Well students meet on Wednesday nights at 6 PM including devotionals, youth band and drama team activities led by Holli Shelton and Laura Liebner. Youth band includes vocals, instruments, tech teams, and more. Drama team includes creative worship with music and dance. Join the fun!


Mission trips give The Well students an opportunity to travel to other communities and focus on helping others. Past trips have been to Mountain T.O.P., SIFAT, Upper Sand Mountain Parish, Copperhill TN, Tuskegee AL and Slidell,  LA to help with Hurricane Katrina recovery. These trips give students the assurance that they can make a difference in the lives of others by sharing a Christian attitude and a willing heart.


MOTION is more than a conference. It’s more than bands and speakers. MOTION is about a generation empowered by Jesus, equipped to make a difference, and living out their faith every day!

Discovery Weekend is one of the most important events of our year. It is an opportunity for our students to grow spiritually and relationally. This student-led event allows our senior high students to pour into our junior high students, leading small groups, sharing testimonies, and growing in faith with each other.
