Living Waters is a 20-week closed group for men and women seeking freedom in areas of relational brokenness. Through Living Waters, participants are invited to rely more fully upon Jesus and His saving work at the cross — allowing Him to meet deep needs and call us int our true identities as sons and daughters. Note: Applications are available by emailing Jenni or Spirit or can be found at the information table at The Well.

This is a discussion based group in which women are encouraged to share their opinions on various topics impacting them personally and our cultural generally. The heart behind these events to provide a safe space for women to come together and discuss these issues, without feeling judged or shamed for their opinions. As stated in our initial event, this is not a time to debate. People are encouraged to share their opinion, but there is no room for judgment, shaming or bullying others for expressing their views.

Jealous of women-only reading groups? Me too. This group consists of the following components: read a book a month, discuss it, pray together, and eat an excellent snack. The books will range from Steinbeck to Lewis, but biographies and cookbooks are prohibited. We will also avoid lengthy and boring books.

Share your love of reading with other women at the Well. We rotate monthly who selects our next book and meet once a month to discuss the book, get to know one another, encourage each other and share prayer requests. Our location rotates (people’s homes, coffee shops, restaurants) and finishing the book is encouraged, but not required. It’s a low stress, low-key group. We laugh, we love each other and we share a love for books! Moms with nursing babies welcome!
