"For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 6:23)

Living Water:

1. We are still excited about the opportunity to partner once again with Northfield Human Services to care for students at Whitmore Lake Public Schools through the Backpack for Kids program! This year, no matter what the school year holds, these students will need backpacks and supplies (which now includes wipes and masks).

This year will be a bit different in what we collect: instead of the supplies themselves, we're collecting monetary donations that Northfield Human Services will then use to purchase the supplies. Please consider joining in financially selecting "Backpacks for Kids" on Living Water's giving page, or via Venmo and designate your gift for "Backpacks for Kids." Donations should ideally be given by August 15.

Questions about Backpacks for Kids? Reach out to Stacey Parker!

2. Our region of Michigan remains in phase 4.

As such, we will continue online worship this Sunday, August 9: 9 AM Bible study and 10:15 AM worship on Zoom. We continue to be ready to hold in-person worship the first week that we are in Phase 5, weather permitting. We will let you know each and every week where we stand on the Wednesday of that week (i.e., we will let you know by August 12 where we stand for August 16, and so on).

Please continue to pray that our infections begin to decline again, as you continue to pray for the health and safety of our fellow citizens and all of those fighting COVID-19 on the front lines and for wisdom for our elected leadership at a local, state, and federal level.

We also want to encourage you to continue to follow the medical advice - stay home as much as you can, to keep social distance between you and people who aren't members of your household, and to wear masks when you are out in public, etc. - all to do your part in helping stop the spread of the coronavirus and to protect the most vulnerable among us.

To read more of our in-person gathering plan for when we are able to gather (on everything from mandatory masks and mandatory health checks), please go here.

If you need a mask, which will be required once we begin in-person worship, please let Laura Bowen know so she can get you one.

3. This Sunday, August 9, we continue our series called Justified & Unified: A Study in Romans:

  • Each Sunday, we will look at a small piece of one chapter from Romans. This week, we continue with a few verses from chapter 7 (21-25).
  • During the week, I invite you to read the chapter of Romans from Sunday once a day. Keep reading Romans 6 the rest of this week, and then the week of August 9-15, read Romans 7.
  • Join us 7 PM Wednesday on Zoom to debrief the chapter of Romans for the week. We will debrief Romans 7 next Wednesday, 8/12.

4. Follow-up from our Voters' Assembly (June 28):

  • Here's the list of potential ministry efforts that was requested that we brainstormed three years ago at the high school library to see if any of you were interested in picking up and developing any of these efforts on top of the ones we are already working towards. Please let Frank Murdock know if you would like to help with any of these ministry efforts or if you have any questions.
