The Well is a gathering place for women to encourage one another and be inspired and challenged to know God.

The Well

The Well is a gathering place for women
to grow deeper in our relationship with Jesus and
to create richer, more authentic connections with one another.

The Well is the women’s ministry at First Woodway, made up of women from all different ages and stages of life . . . and we would love to meet you!

We know that we live very full and busy lives, therefore our goal is to create a ministry fueled with intention and purpose. Every Life Group, prayer group, Bible study, retreat, service opportunity, and other events we offer will encourage you in your walk with Christ
while also fostering genuine relationships with other First Woodway women.

But we can’t do it alone.  We need YOU!  We’d love to have you get involved in one of our Women’s Ministry Teams.  For more information, please contact Elizabeth Oates, Minister of Discipleship: Women and Marriage at

FLOURISH is a mentoring program developed by Passion City Church. We’re launching this program in April. Learn more below! 

Flourish is a year-long program that connects women in a curriculum-based mentoring relationship to encourage and challenge one another in their walks with Jesus. Flourish calls women to a higher standard of living, following the commands in Titus 2:3-5, urging us to live a God-filled life for the sake of the Gospel.

Our kick-off event is in April (date TBD). Attendance is required to participate in Flourish.

* These FAQs are partially taken from the website by Passion City Church.


What curriculum do you use?

The Flourish curriculum was created by Passion City Church and is based on Scripture. Flourish anchors women around six practical life topics, engaging them in both the Word and in each other’s lives. These topics are relevant to women everywhere and reflect our vision to help them grow into a life that matches the standards to which God calls us!

Do I have to be mature in my walk with Jesus to participate in Flourish?

All you need is a willingness to commit to the journey! That’s what FLOURISH is for — to help you grow in your walk with Jesus. Your mentor may not have all the answers, but she will open Scripture and walk with you as you gain a better understanding of who Jesus is. So, in other words, you need just the right amount of maturity to stick to your commitment and press on to see what God has in store for you through this opportunity!

What are the requirements to participate?

We encourage you to meet up with your mentor/mentee at least twice a month (if not more often) so that you experience the full benefits of the program. This is up to you and your mentor/mentee.

We encourage women to build daily devotional time into their lives, spending time in the Word five days a week. Everything you need for the journey is provided in the Flourish curriculum, including your daily devotionals!

Do I get to pick my mentor/mentee?

You may request a certain mentor/mentee when you apply for the program, but no worries if you don’t have anyone in mind! We are very intentional with the matching process. We consider many factors to provide each mentee with the best mentor possible given her stage and season of life.

Is there a cost to participate in Flourish?

Both mentors and mentees will want their own dedicated copy of the Flourish curriculum in order to ensure the best experience with the program content and daily devotionals.

Do you have any resources to guide the mentoring relationship?
