Weekly Letter From Our Pastor

Sunday Church:  The Quilt Project
     A month later there's still buzz in the area about, "The Quilt Project."  The seed was planted late last summer: What if every family attending the December Ruby's Pantry was given the gift of a beautiful hand-made quilt?  After many phone calls, trips, texts, emails, and prayers, the dream became reality.  Last month over 200 quilts - all donated by Wisconsin quilters - were given as gifts to our guests.  Moving through this project we learned much about God and about ourselves.  This Sunday we will be reflecting on how the Spirit transformed us in the midst of this task, quilt by quilt, person by person. Our preaching theme:  "The Quilt Project." 

Living for Jesus!

Last week's snowfall dumped several inches of demanding work for the residents of this part of the Upper Midwest.  A big shout out to several of our ministry partners:  Cole Larson, Duane Benoy and Mark Lieberherr for clearning the sidewalks and parking lot.  Thank you!
JAM (Jesus And Me) 
Winter/Spring schedules are busy and we are lacking a few teachers for JAM. For the time being, the K-1 class and the 2-4 class will not meet on the last Sunday of each month. Please keep your children with you during church, do not send them to the younger class as it will be full. The 3 year old-4K class will have class every week. See the Facebook JAM page for a more detailed schedule. If anyone has the desire to volunteer to teach, let Christine Ebner know.
This Sunday:
Little Jammers (3year olds-4K) - Mrs. Schmidt 
Middle Jammers (K-1) - Mrs. Harder
Big Jammers (2-4) - NO CLASS (Stay with families during church)
Drivers Needed - Wednesday,
February 7th

CORE is planning a trip to the Eau Claire Trampoline Park after school on Wednesday, February 7.  To make this happen we need approximately 40 seat belts in order to safely accommodate all our students.  If you are available to drive that day please send us an email at:  ned.livingwater@gmail.com   Thanks!
School's Out: Under the Sea Fun!

Living Water Calendar
Want to know what's happening at your church?  One of the absolute best ways is the Living Water App.  Simply open the app and when you get the Welcome Page, click on the calendar button, located on the bottom.  We work really hard to update it each week with things you'll want to know. Thanks!
E-Prayer Team: Prayer Coordinator
Living Water is searching for someone willing to step in the role of e-prayer coordinator.  This person would receive prayer requests, then shoot off a prayer email to the members of the team.  That simple, but that important.  Could you possibly do this?  Then please contact your church office!    livingwatercameron@gmail.com
Hotel Soap and Shampoo Amnesty Program
Feeling guilty about those  bars or soap and little shampoo bottles that have fallen into your suitcase while travelling?  Cleaning out from under the vanity and finding all sorts of extra new bottles of soap , shampoo and toothpaste?  Bring them to church between now and February 12    no questions asked.  We will distribute whatever we collect to our Ruby's guests at the February 17   distribution.  You will be guilt free and your house will be a little cleaner.
New Men's Small Group
We've got an idea for a new men's small group.  Connecting up guys who like to fix & build things, with short-term mission projects out in the community.  If this sounds like a way you're feeling pulled to serve others through Christ, you're not alone!  Sign up at Clipboard Central and/or give Ike Stouffer a call at:  (715) 645-0319.
First Communion Retreat
Saturday, February 10th

On Saturday, February 10 from 9 am to noon Living Water will be offering a one-day workshop for all those wishing to join our weekly meal called Holy Communion.  Parents - if your children have been asking about the bread and wine, it may be time to come and join this conversation.  Sign up is at Clipboard Central.  Please contact Pastor Ned with any questions.  
Couples Sign Class - February 18th
