We have all been given gifts by the Holy Spirit that shape who we are and how we operate in the body of Christ. If you recognize yourself as having the gift of Service to others, here are current opportunities at Living Water.

Michigan Pond Hockey - February 8, 9, 10
We are excited and praying for this community event, which is a fundraiser to support local school districts and youth athletic organizations. Here's what is needed at this time:

  • Prayers for cold weather! We can all pitch in on the need to pray that the pond is frozen enough for the event to happen (but maybe not as much snow as last year)
  • Sign¬†up to be a volunteer
  • Let Stacey Parker know if you would be interested in playing ice hockey as part of the Living Water team.

Serve Opportunity - Popcorn Fridays 
Have a free Friday morning coming up? You have the chance to help the Whitmore Lake Elementary PTO with its popcorn fundraisers. A fun chance to serve at the Whitmore Lake Elementary School alongside others in the community! Please check Signup Genius to see what dates need volunteers and/or speak to Stacey Parker for details.

Sunday Morning Pastry Donations
Please help us provide baked goods for our members, guests, and visitors by signing up to bring pastries on any Sunday morning. There is a sign-up sheet in the Welcome Center. If you would rather make a donation toward the purchase of coffee and other supplies, please contact Linda Murdock.
