“Walk for Water” on Saturday, March 30: Join Our Team and Give the Water of Life
Since 2005, through the generosity of Christian individuals, churches, and corporations, Water Mission has made possible the “free gift” of clean drinking water to disadvantaged people around the world. You and I know that this gift is not free, for it requires a commitment of generous people who have a heart to bring Jesus Christ’s message, the “free gift of living water,” to the world. Both the “water of life” and clean drinking water are transformational for those who receive this gift, offering physical refreshment, healing, and the message of a spiritual path to everlasting life.
On Saturday, March 30, you will have the opportunity once again to participate in the Walk for Water, to give not only the gift of clean water, but also the message of the “water of life” of Jesus Christ. Join the St. Philip’s Church Team at 9:00 a.m. at Riverfront Park, 1061 Everglades Ave., North Charleston. Contact Dorothy Lancaster at (843) 425-3590 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to join the team. You may also click here to go to our team page to register and/or donate.

St. Philip’s youth went to Marion Square on March 8 to hand out Water Mission literature, collect donations, and spread the Gospel. How will YOU answer the call?
St. Philip's Youth for Water Mission
by Jill Settle
On March 8, several of St. Philip's youth (ages 9-12) gathered at Marion Square to raise money and awareness for Water Mission.The children handed out brochures and encouraged those without cash to make donations online. Their best line was "Do you want to help save lives?" That really grabbed folks' attention!
The boys had a joyful experience educating tourists and Charlestonians alike about the gift of safe water, raising over $350. It was certainly an honor for me to be a part of it!
