The Well

 

Spice is a place to find friendship, a place to be real, and a place to meet Jesus and grow in His love. Meeting at the church on Tuesday mornings between mid-September and the end of May, Spice is open to all women. Loving childcare is provided, and coffee and refreshments are served. Please join us on Tuesday mornings from 9:15-11:15. Bring a friend, make many more!

We meet in the Multi-Use Room, starting Sept. 19, with teaching lectures and table discussion. Daniela Chillemi and Becky Garner, our teachers for Fall, are leading our Fall study,  "Knowing the Voice of God Through Prayer." Bring a friend or neighbor. Loving childcare provided. We invite ladies who are new to Spice to contact Chris Lawson at (925) 689-1698 or lawson1179@astound.net for more information and to get registered. 


VISION

Where an organization is going; what it wishes to accomplish. An ongoing, evolving, hopeful look into the future that stirs the hearts and minds of people who know they will never see its end or limit

The VISION of Spice is to nurture women in community, encouraging spiritual growth through the study and application of God’s Word.

VALUES

The behaviors and attitudes we will choose in order to move purposefully toward our vision.

The VALUES of Spice are:

1. Safety: 

This value implies emotional safety, which is enabled by trust, affirmation, and confidentiality, as well as theological safety, which is enabled by teaching that is grounded in biblical truth - I Timothy 6:20: … guard what has been entrusted to you..

2. Compassion: 

This value focuses on the kind of care that Jesus exhibited. It implies thoughtful, loving responsiveness to our women. -1 Peter 3:8: …live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as [sisters], be compassionate and humble. & Col. 3:12: Clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.

3. Inclusiveness:

This value describes a commitment to reach out, enfold, and accept all women. - Acts 10:34: God does not show favoritism…

4. Authenticity: 

This value suggests vulnerability and humility, free of the pretense that we are perfect and blameless. It permits intimacy and allows for accountability. - I John 1:8-10: If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us… & James 5:16: Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed…
