The Season of Lent
We will be covering chapter 26 of The Story, called "The Hour of Darkness" through Good Friday, April 19. We invite you to direct your meditations this Lenten season by reading Chapter 26 once each week.

This Sunday at Living Water - March 17
During our worship services in Lent, we will be meditating on what happened the day Jesus was betrayed, looking through the lens of Luke 22-23. The text for this Sunday is Luke 22:39-53 (NIV). Come and find out more!

Sunday Adult Bible Study Hour 
This class begins at 9 a.m. every Sunday and continues a chapter-by-chapter study of The Story based on the text study that is sent each week along with the weekly devotion. If you are not on our E-News list, please contact Linda Murdock.

Our New Lenten Paraments
Many thanks go to Sherri Webster, sister of Becky Majesky, who designed and sewed the beautiful Lenten paraments that grace our altar and cross. Although Sherri has never been able to visit Living Water, she learned a bit about us and created a pattern to suit our worship style and personality. We are grateful for her talent and inspiration, which have helped beautify our worship environment.
