Walk Closely with Your GodWritten by Jeron Parkins
I pray you are walking closely with Jesus and that your fellowship is sweet. I pray that you are well and that God is glorified through you. Thank you for all you do in the name of our Lord Jesus and all the ways you show his love to others.
The Lord bless you and keep you;
the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you;
the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace
Here’s an overview of what’s happening in the near future at Living Water – what a pleasure to worship and serve the Lord together!
We continue our sermon series from 1st Peter. Chad Mortenson will share his testimony as he is being nominated for a second term on the Elder Board.

GUATAMALA MISSION TRIP INTEREST MEETING
MONTHLY PRAYER MEETING BEGINNING! 2nd Wednesday of the Month at 6:30 P.M. in the Fellowship Hall
Join me for a time of interceding for our nation, for our community, for our church and for one another. We will meet with the Lord in worship and then bring our requests before the throne of grace. Our first meeting is this coming Wednesday, Feb 10 at 6:30 pm in the Fellowship Hall.
The building remains ahead of schedule and under budget. Please keep praying for the workers safety. Please keep asking the Lord to bless our second year fundraising goal. Thank you for your faithful giving. If you haven’t made a pledge or a contribution please consider giving to the building fund (see different giving options and anonymous giving information at www.bringinglifeproject.org). Walking around the 2nd floor this morning had me dreaming of the future! What a great tool we’ll have for ministry! Here’s some photos on the upstairs progress:
NEW MEMBERS WELCOME March 7
ANNUAL BUSINESS MEETING March 7
Our Annual Business Meeting will be IN-PERSON on Sunday, March 7. We’ll be voting on the 2021/22 church budget and electing church offices. If Living Water is your church you are invited to attend – we’re happy to have you! We understand that some members might not be able to physically attend the meeting, so we will likely have a means for you to participate remotely. The current plan is to have the meeting after the 2nd Worship service. We likely won’t have a potluck this time around so we’re talking about options for food.

EAGLE LAKE CAMP REGISTRATION
Eagle Lake has EXTENDED their early registration discount until February 14th and they have LOWERED the price of the registration fee from $25/kid to $10/kid. Start the registration process below:
NURSERY POSITIONS OPEN
On Tuesday someone sent out an email supposedly from me (Jeron) asking people to contact them. If you respond they will ask you to buy gift cards or money from you for “ministry.” It’s a scam. If you got such a message please report it. Phishing definition: “The fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies or people in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.”

Reign meets each Wednesday night at 6:30pm in Reign Building (formerly known as the Cross Building) behind the Church. At the meetings the youth are encouraged to bring their friends to a night for social interaction, devotions, and a place they can get a godly perspective of issues they face on a day to day basis. The leaders of the youth have families of their own and can relate to the youth's life styles and questions. Youth Leaders, Cliff & Cari Kincannon 505-350-8748, help in this always challenging ministry as our youth face the ever present peer pressures in the schools and the extra-curricular activities around the community.

SUNDAY CHILDREN’S MINISTRY at 10:45 a.m.
Parents, when you come to the 10:45 service, arrive a bit early to check in your kids. For check in, there are three kiosks in the main building (outer lobby, inner lobby and by west double doors) that you can use (we will seek to clean these often, but if you prefer a physical sign in on paper, there will be a clipboard on the lobby table). If your kids haven’t participated in our children’s ministry before, allow a bit more time to get registered – or simply register your kids right now through this link: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSeKcvQV-Vi0u2bSAW_kcmCswbRnYR0FjOZvW08pQL7FYEIhDg/viewform?usp=sf_link
