The CWC Program

The Christian Women's Center W.O.W. program is a 12 month discipleship program that offers refuge to women in crisis, believing these women can be restored to physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being through the love of Christ.  The crisis could be abuse, prostitution, neglect, homelessness or any combination resulting from drug or alcohol addiction.  We help women achieve life change by demonstrating to them the love of Christ through unconditional love and acceptance.  We provide one-on-one biblical counseling, group addictions counseling, career readiness classes, health screenings, parenting instruction (as needed), life skills, Bible studies, opportunities to volunteer, wellness education/exercise and partnerships with community services for our residents.

The acronym, WOW, stands for Women of the Well and refers to the story of how Jesus met a woman at Jacob's well and told her everything she had ever done.  She was stunned that He would even talk to her.  Then, Jesus tells her He could offer her "living water" and she'll never go thirsty again.  The "living water" represented eternal life that she could only get through belief in Him.  She doesn't fully comprehend until He tells her that He is the promised Messiah! (John 4:4-30)
