GEt Involved in Service and Missions

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. If you are interested in serving in any of our ministries click here

If you are interested in how we serve outside our congregation,

listed below are some of the ministry partners you would become familiar with at Living Waters

His Helping Hands Inc

- This mission was started by a member of Living Waters and organizes volunteers

to serve Peoria residents by building wheel chair ramps and making repairs to outdoor stairs, 

basic home repair and first time home ownership programs.

Jacob's Well

830 W Inverness Road, Peoria, IL

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.
