Traditionally churches have offered members the opportunity to purchase poinsettia plants in honor or memory of someone. Providence church has participated in the tradition Christmas Poinsettias in the past. However, this year the session decided to offer church members the opportunity to present Christmas Water.
Right now, approximately 1 billion people on the planet don’t have access to safe, clean drinking water. That’s one in six of us. One in six of our brothers and sisters around the world have to do this:
But there is hope! Just $20 can give one person in a developing nation clean water for 20 years. In place of Christmas Poinsettias this year we would like to encourage church members to give towards a water well in a needy community. Please consider joining Providence in this celebration. Honor your loved ones by helping others live with honor.
