WELL, WE DID IT! 

We moved Living Water Lutheran Church from Kilmarnock to Weems! As the coordinator of our moving logistics, Cliff Greve, put it, “We moved from a 12,000 square foot building into a 15’ x 23’ office.” Wow!

Aside from individuals who took back no-longer-needed items that had particular meaning for them, or that were given in memory of their loved one, the following churches and organizations will continue using items from Living Water: Abiding Faith Baptist Church, Interfaith Service Council warehouse, Boys & Girls Club of the Northern Neck, Rappahannock Art League (art supplies for use by Afghan refugees), and Lancaster Community Library. Campbell Presbyterian’s seminarian intern, Madison Winters, took some of the theology books.

From inventorying, to packing, to finding recipients for unneeded items, to digital and audio set-up, to hauling boxes and items, to working with movers, it was a big job. Particular thanks go to the Moving Logistics Committee, comprised of Cliff Greve, Therese Horwath, and Roland Stecher. Cathy Heacock, Tom Heacock, Frank Richard, John Bowden, Dave Mower, and Jamie Nichols also greatly contributed to the effort. Campbell’s Bruce Julian coordinated the effort from Weems.

Indeed, everyone in the congregation contributed to making the move go well. Whether you prayed, or whether you hefted cartons, you helped. Thanks be! 

NEED A RIDE TO WORSHIP? 

If for any reason lack of transportation is keeping you from attending worship services or other Living Water events, please do not quietly stay away! Please let Pastor Judy know of your need. There are members of the congregation willing to give a ride to a friend.

PASTORAL CARE

Pastor Judy will maintain contact with the members of the congregation, but please know that you are welcome to reach out of her. Pastor Judy:  thomsonjudy@gmail.com and 804-725-6743.   

ABOUT THE PRAYER LIST

Living Water maintains a Prayer List of persons both in, and outside of, our congregation who are facing difficulties. The Prayer List is posted on a bulletin board at the back of the sanctuary, and is included in the Sunday bulletin on the first Sunday of the month. Members of the congregation are urged to keep these persons in their prayers. To have someone’s name placed on the Prayer List, simply give the name to Janet Smith. If you have placed someone’s name on the List, and there comes a time when the person’s circumstances have changed such that he or she no longer needs to be listed, kindly ask Janet to remove the name so that the List remains accurate. Thank you.

NOTES FROM MISSION COMMITTEE

Mission Committee chairperson Nancy Mower thanks everyone who provided rides for Mary Ritz over the past year or so. Since Mary lives less than a mile from Campbell, and since her family are active members of Campbell, she has transportation in place that most of us would envy!
Nancy also would like the congregation to know that, for the time being, we will not be having donated flowers at worship services. Providing access to Campbell church for the florist is one consideration. Campbell has two large, healthy potted plants on the chancel that serve to bring a reminder of the natural world inside.

WOMEN’S BOOK AND BIBLE STUDY GROUP

The group’s convener, Carol Adams, reports that the group continues to give the coronavirus more time to get out of town. The group will resume eagerly when it is safe for them to be inside, in someone’s home.
