Pure Water, Pure Love


”Pure Water, Pure Love” is a ministry of WMU to provide missionaries with water filters and the people they serve with wells that offer clean water, free from disease-causing microorganisms.

The Mission Friends of our church are asking you to drop your coins (or even dollars!) into the large water bottle at the church entrance throughout the remainder of November so we can send this money to PWPL. We thank you for helping us with this project!
