Service and Missions
God is always working to extend the message of His salvation to the ends of the earth. Living Waters witnesses to the love of Jesus Christ by serving locally in the Peoria area. We are soon to build mission partnerships nationally and internationally.
October 31st, 80 Quilts, 30 Personal Care Kits, 48 School Kits, and 45 Baby Care Kits for Lutheran World Relief to Bloomington. The kits will be shipped to the Minneapolis, MN warehouse and then all over the world. We have put tracking labels on some of them so will find out later where they went. Thank you to all those who donated items, shipping costs, time and talents!
Our annual pie auction raised $2461. (including $250 from Thrivent)
The funds will go to Midwest Food Bank which serves 200 local soup kitchens and food pantries.
THANK YOU to all who baked pies and participated in our auction!
Our first disbursement of special offerings for the Washington relief efforts has been made. $2500 was given to Crossroads United Methodist Church Washington Relief Fund and $2500 was given to Washington Rotary Foundation. Both organizations focus 100% of funds on local needs for families. Thank you for your contributions.
