We have this saying at Living Waters: "Put your shoulder to the plow!" This mission is stronger only as the people of God apply their gifts, energy and time to serve God in multiple ways.

Jacob's Well is a ministry of Living Waters located right in the community, a mile from our location. We started Jacob's Well as a community-based children's and youth ministry, but has grown to include minor local home repairs, a community garden, after school tutoring and study club, and adult Bible study.
The mission statement of Jacob's Well is A Place Where God, His Word and People Meet. Volunteers are needed for the study club on Tuesday and Thursdays during the school year from 4:30 - 6:30 PM, as well as for our home repair projects. Click here for more information.
