Welcome to the well
In biblical days, women drew water from the well to sustain their families. The well also was a gathering place where women met old and new friends—much like women do in coffee shops today. Jesus told a Samaritan woman at the well that the water He gives "will become in them a spring of water welling up to eternal life" (John 4:14). In this way, Jesus invites us to gather around His well and drink from God's gift to us, who is Jesus—the eternal source of life.
The Well: Women's Resources exists to equip and encourage women in faith near and far through three primary avenues:
The Well: Women's Resources is overseen by the Women’s Resource Council, which consists of one representative from each presbytery that rotate in three classes, with each class serving three years. The Executive Committee consists of the Chair, Chair-elect, three Committee Chairs, and Treasurer. The Executive Committee is elected by the EPC nominating process and represents the EPC permanent committee per approval of the 2016 General Assembly.
We will be adding additional content soon, so check back often for recommendations on a variety of discipleship and leadership resources (each fully vetted by the Women's Resource Council) and more.
The Women's Resource Council encourages and provides ways for women to communicate with women across the denomination. We utilize social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, email, blogs, and all forms of print communications. Of course, person-to-person contact is always encouraged!
