Past update : 3/18/2020

The Elders met on March 17 to discuss what ministry at Living Water Church will look like for the foreseeable future due to the Coronavirus.  The impacts of the virus and our government's response to it evolve daily.  While the following actions are prudent now, we will continually monitor the situation and revise these decisions as needed.  For now, there is no timetable for when these restrictions will end.
  • Sunday gatherings are suspended – Sunday sermons will continue to be pre-recorded and made available for viewing online.
  • All ministry meetings are suspended – This includes regular Youth Group, Men’s & Women’s Ministry, Community Groups, ministry team meetings, classes, and events.
  • The office is closed – Living Water staff will work from home as much as possible.

Making Decisions
It is important for you to be aware of how these decisions were reached.  We are not making these difficult decisions in a vacuum.  We are reviewing and consulting the latest guidance and directives from:

Our national, state, and local officials call for "social distancing."  While challenging and extreme, we believe these measures really do work and are important ways for us to protect the most vulnerable among us.  As Christians, we should view these hard sacrifices as ways we “love our neighbor” (Luke 10:27) and be subject to the authorities God has given for our good (Romans 13).

Ministry Continues
Through this time, Living Water's Pastoral team will endeavor to encourage and resource our body through online, over the phone, and written forms of communication and resources.  We are still accessible and intend to keep reaching out to individuals through this season.  Moving forward, visit and bookmark the Ministry Updates COVID-19 page on our website.  It will serve as a centralized location where updates and special content will be available as this situation continues to unfold.

Please join us online for our Sunday gatherings through the web or the Living Water App.  We heard lots of positive feedback this past week about gathering as families around a screen to watch the Sunday sermon.  Remember, this is just a season.  We long for the day when we are able to gather again in person to worship our Lord, hear the word preached, and remember the life and death of Jesus in our place.  Though we don’t know when, we know that day will come.

There is much yet before us on this journey.  But we know that through all things, God is making known his glory and building his church.  May the Gospel message of hope in our risen savior be the peace of our hearts and the message we share as we walk through this coming season.

In hope,
