Weekly Letter From Our Pastor

Sunday Church = Super Sunday
     In the two weeks leading up to Super Bowl Sunday we are fed a steady stream of interviews and information.  There is no end of speculation about things like Tom Brady's hand to Justin Timberlake's playlist to who will take home the prize for, 'best commercial.'   And this year because it's all happening right next door we in Western Wisconsin get a front row seat. 
     Aside from the Patriot and Eagles players facing off on the field, one group of people we'll be watching closely Sunday night are the referees:  the men in black and white entrusted with the job of keeping order on the field.  Which for us begs questions like, "What's God's plan for keeping order among God's people?  Does God ever blow the whistle on us and level penalties?  And if so, what are they?"  Join us for our message this Sunday:  "Penalties- Super Sunday Sins"
 
Satellite Worship:  Step One
     The months we've been preparing to capture Living Water's worship service in hi-def AV in order to make it available for streaming to smaller churches in our area.  Called the, "Satellite Worship Project," it has involved two areas of effort:  1) installing the necessary streaming equipment;  2) building relationships with churches interested in joining us in this ground-breaking effort.  This past month we completed part one - equipment installation. Over the next few weeks look for our new Tech Team to be up in LW's AV booth practicing how to use the new cameras and streaming equipment in order to be prepared to, 'go live' sometime in the coming months.  Interested in joining the Tech Team?  Cool!  Please stop by the booth, have a look, and give us your name!


Living for Jesus!

-Ned

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.

 Meet the Living Water Family of the Week
Names: Pennie Budan & Tyrah
Something interesting about our household:
My name is Pennie and my husband's name is Jayphy. My youngest daughter is Tyrah. I have three other daughters: Darian, my oldest has two daughters (Ryder 5 & Zoie 11 months); Hailey, has one son (Marcial who is 2 with one more one son on the way in January); then there is Kaitlyn. My husband has two kids Jade and Dylan.  We have four dogs and two stray cats.
How we became connected to Living Water:
I remember the first time I went to just check it out . I filled out the guest book and the next day or so Pr Ned contacted me. It  was nice to know he took the time. Then the next week he knew who I was.
What we like about Living Water:
The thing I like the most is that Pr Ned takes the time to get to know his congregation.
