Growing: Small Groups: Exploring the Vices and Virtues

New Spiritual Formation Group for Women beginning Fall 2019

Are you interested in joining a group of 8-10 women to courageously explore ways to grow into Christlike character by examining the classic Vices and Virtues?


In her book, Glittering Vices, A New Look at the Seven Deadly Sins and their Remedies, author Rebecca DeYoung states: “The Vices offer subtle and deceptive imitations of the fullness of the human good, what we often simply call ‘happiness’…When good things are wrongly pursued, sin happens. And when sin accumulates, our character becomes warped and misshapen as well.”

Through the grace of God and power of the Holy Spirit (2 Peter: 3,4) our group will gently seek to explore these core sins and their offshoots, with the hope of substituting virtues in their place. In addition to reading and discussing the book, we will experiment with new spiritual practices each month so that transformation can be practically worked out in our everyday life.

Dates: Tuesdays twice a month from September 24 to April 28th (exact dates TBD)
Time: 1:00-2:30 p.m.
Cost: $250 (14-16 sessions)
Place: WellSpring Office, 845 Oak Grove Ave. Suite 202, Menlo Park
This group is open to women.

Facilitators: Patty Martin and Patti Yukawa
