Site excavation for the erection of Living Water Lutheran Church's Reach Forward ministry activities center began yesterday.
These pictures were taken by a Living Water disciple yesterday.
We're located in Centerville, Ohio.
Also shown: What the center will look like (on the right side of the architectural rendering) once completed by March 8 of next year. The black awning in that picture will be a temporary connector between the two buildings, the location of phase 2 of our building plans. This first phase will give us a large multipurpose area, a kitchen, and additional restrooms. The second phase will bring new classrooms and office space. The third phase will bring the expansion of our sanctuary.
Please pray with us for a safe and successful project and that God will help us use this new facility to pursue our primary mission: being and making disciples of Jesus Christ!
Our congregation's mission statement is the Great Commission given to the Church by Jesus Christ Himself in Matthew 28:19-20: "...go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
We pursue this mission by Reaching Up, worshiping and trusting in the God revealed in Jesus; Reaching In, strengthening one another in faith in Christ and the power of God's Word through our fellowship built on the Word and Sacraments; and Reaching Out, sharing the gospel--the good news of new and everlasting life through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ alone--in both words and actions. Our building initiative pursues this mission, Reaching Forward to extend the blessings of Christ to our neighbors and future generations!
Living Water is a congregation of the North American Lutheran Church.
