One of our Youth Group students (Loreina Smith) was so moved during a Christ in Youth conference that she decided to make a impact on the water crisis in the world. When we returned from this event her passion did not cease, instead she got in contact with The Water Project who helps further funds Water projects going on globally. And now we as a church, are doing the two week challenge all because one of our students wanted to step up and make a difference in the world because of the inspiration of Jesus.
Did you know nearly 1 billion people don't have safe water to drink?
Together, we can change that. Let's fund a new source of drinking water for those who suffer needlessly without it!
Our gifts will be used to construct or rehabilitate a water project, like a well or sand dam, in Africa. We'll see pictures, GPS coordinates, and updates as they come in from the actual water project we fund so we can celebrate the results along with the community we help.

The Water Project, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization unlocking human potential by providing clean, safe water to communities around the world who suffer needlessly without.
Working with local partners in countries like Kenya, Rwanda, Sierra Leone, South Sudan, and Uganda, we build long lasting water projects that are organized, owned and managed by the communities receiving them.
Together, with our partners we identify, implement, report on and follow up on every project. Then we share the whole story with you to inspire confidence in the work being done and the impact it has.
