Embrace Everyone

Empower People

Inspire Hearts

Embody Christ

Borne from the merger of James River and Farmville Districts, the Living Waters District seeks to embrace, empower, and inspire our area
to embody the love of God in Jesus Christ.  

In times like these... we need the Living Waters of Christ to

Reinvigorate, 

Restore, 

and REFRESH

We are very excited to announce the Living Waters District will be hosting a revival series titled “REFRESH.”

It will be based on the scripture Philemon 1:20, “I do wish, brother, that I may have some benefit from you in the Lord; refresh my heart in Christ.”

SAFER SANCTUARIES TRAINING!

UMC Discipleship has updated their policies and we want to keep you informed!

IT’S NOT ABOUT FIXING CHURCHES!!!!!

This is about protecting staff, volunteers as well as our vulnerable populations.  The new policy speaks to Youth and Youth Ministries but we are also encompassing Vulnerable Adults and Church Security.

The Living Waters District has 4 Conference Certified Trainers – Rev. Tim Beck, Rev. Glenn Riggs, Rev. Carrie Moffitt and Terri Riggs.

If you are interested in having a training at your church, please contact Rev. Tim Beck or Terri Riggs.
