Living Water International & Special Christmas Eve Offering

God gave us the most magnificent present of all when he took human form and came to dwell among us.  We celebrate that great gift of love every Christmas.  In gratitude and celebration of God’s gift to us, our church will be giving away its entire Christmas Eve offering in an effort to share the love of God with others.  Our Christmas Eve offering will be given to two God-inspired charities: Living Water International and Community First! Village.  We are asking Living Water International builds water wells that provide safe drinking water for some of the most impoverished communities in the world.  In addition to providing clean drinking water, Living Water International shares a message about “living water”—the gospel of Jesus Christ—which alone satisfies the deepest thirst.
