"We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well, because you had become so dear to us."

1 Thessalonians 2:8

The Wellspring


The Wellspring is the women's ministry of Hillside UMC inviting you to gather in Christ-centered fellowship as we encourage friendships, foster serving together, and promote growing in our understanding and love of Jesus Christ. 

We do this through Large Group Gatherings, Small Group Bible study, Mother's of Preschoolers, Retreats and other opportunities. 

No matter what season of life you are in, if you have a desire to be in deep relationships with other women, come be a part of the Wellspring here at Hillside and let us help you find those connections.

In these pages you'll find all the information you need to participate in anything we do and begin your journey. We update this regularly so you'll find our special event information as well - always check back! It is our greatest desire that you find your community here at Hillside.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to email us. We look forward to seeing you soon!
LeAnn and Lesley


About The Wellspring


Our mission is to disciple the women of our congregation and community by providing opportunities to come together in Christ-centered fellowship, to encourage friendships, to serve together, and to grow in the knowledge and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.



About once a quarter Women of Hillside hosts a large fellowship gathering in order to provide an opportunity for you to meet other ladies, introduce a friend to Women of Hillside, receive a spirit refreshing message and simply have a great time. These take the form of Ladies Night Out dinners, Coffee & Dessert evenings, Couples evenings (partnering with Men of Hillside) and sometimes a Saturday brunch. We always have great food of some kind and always provide childcare for our moms.


We strongly support Hillside women serving other women. 

We partner with Hillside's Missions Board and sponsor an annual Shop-for-Mom Event in December providing the children living at the Cherokee Family Violence Center an opportunity to shop for Christmas gifts for their mothers. This is a free event for these children.

We support our youngest sisters-in-Christ as they begin their confirmation journey by providing Bibles for each young woman.


We host a bi-annual ladies weekend retreat in October. This is a great opportunity to unplug for a couple of days, relax, make new friends, laugh, cry, and most importantly spend great quality time with your Lord growing your faith.


MOPS meets at Hillside on the 1st and 3rd Fridays of each month during the school year. Please visit our MOPS page for more information.


Numerous opportunities are available throughout the year to join your sisters-in-Christ in studying and growing in the Word. Classes range from in-depth to "no homework" to drop-in classes. There is one for you. Please visit our Wellspring Studies page for more information.

Give Us Your Speaker Suggestions

We need your help! Have you heard an amazing speaker and you'd really love for her (or him, we do allow men!) to share her message with your community of ladies here in Woodstock? We'd love to know about her.  Please email us with her or the ministry's contact info, where you heard this person speak, and why you were so impressed. We can only consider local speakers (no more than $1000 fee/honorarium and no travel). We look forward to hearing from you!
