**Registration for The Well opens December 9!
Have you ever hoped motherhood would be idyllic but discovered instead it is HARD and full of the unexpected? Have you ever entertained the thought that you are a ‘bad’ mom? Or simply a ‘not good enough’ mom? Have you battled comparison, loneliness or guilt in your motherhood journey? Do you ever drink cold coffee but NOT on purpose?? If any or all of these answers are yes, we want you to know we have an ongoing invitation for you at our Thursday morning ministry called The Well!
The Well is a six-week gathering in the fall and spring, based on Titus 2:3-5, ministering to weary moms of young children for the purpose of spiritual refreshment and restoration. Our desire is to see God break off common lies and weapons of the enemy-especially in the season of young motherhood! Here, you will experience and benefit from living water through godly mentors and speakers sharing practical tools and biblical wisdom, encouragement and prayer. Our hope and prayer for each woman at The Well stems from Psalm 1:3…
“[S]he will be like a tree firmly planted by streams of water which yields its fruit in its season. And it’s leaf does not wither; and in whatever [s]he does, [s]he prospers.”
Dear Women of The Well… A Note from the Leadership Team
Many hours and planning are involved in developing and creating an atmosphere where we prayerfully hope weary moms can come and be refreshed physically, spiritually, emotionally and mentally. While all are welcome at The Well, we are limited on space. If you are signing up to attend The Well, we welcome you to the table, but we also ask that you recognize that one less seat is now available for others. The leadership team of The Well would like to ask for all women of The Well to please commit, as far as it depends upon you, to attend all sessions, to arrive on time, and to participate in table discussions.
*this request is covered in grace, because we know that life happens!*
Proverbs 16:9 “The mind of man plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.”
Additionally, Wildwood has been very generous in providing a budget for The Well that includes free children’s care and biblical teaching/programming. We would like to ask that women of The Well take advantage of our children’s ministry if necessary to attend The Well. We also welcome mamas who need to bring their nursing babies into The Well sessions. However, we ask that if you do agree to sign up for our children’s ministry that you would use it respectfully in regards to both the sanctuary time inside The Well and the planning done by Melanie and her team to make sure each child is cared for. If anything changes in the needs for your child(ren) we ask that you let us know promptly. We desire to be good stewards of the resources Wildwood has so generously provided to us and we thank you for joining us in this effort.
We are looking forward to another great season of The Well! We are eager to see God trade our broken cisterns for the living water of His Word and His people and for Him to move in powerful ways among us!
Excellent childcare programming is available for kids birth-5th grade on a first come, first served basis with registration. We will be offering care for school age children; however, we will not be able to facilitate any form of virtual learning.
On Thursday mornings, children’s programming will include a Bible story, games and appropriate crafts. Take the opportunity to study the Word knowing that your children will be hiding God’s Word in their hearts as well!
