Friends of Living Water Ministries,

Faith formation, service, leadership, and community are at the heart of our mission and the work God is doing through Living Water Ministries.  It’s through this mission that our vision of transforming lives and the world takes place.

This summer, Living Water Ministries is being called to transform lives and the world through our mission in unpredictable and unprecedented ways.  As a result of COVID-19, we believe the most effective method for us to pursue this mission is through the cancellation of all programs at Stony Lake and Day Camp for the 2020 summer season.  While agonizing to make, the LWM Board of Directors and staff believe this decision is driven by our faith, our desire to serve others, our focus on leadership, and our care for community.

In the coming days, weeks, and months we will be exploring new ways to engage the Living Water Ministries community, and support the work of our congregations and partners in the wake of this pandemic.  In these times of anxiety, uncertainty, and loss we are leaning hard into our faith in Jesus Christ, the work of the Holy Spirit in the world, and the life-giving nature of God. We invite you to lean with us.

Know that we are praying for you.  We also humbly ask for you to pray for us.  There’s no playbook for how we navigate these new waters, but we are certain that the way we get through these challenging times is together, unified by our faith in Jesus Christ and our confident hope in the new life found in the resurrection.

Also know that we give God thanks for the many ways you support the mission of Living Water Ministries with us, and we look forward to transforming the world with you for many years to come.
