We’re here for a purpose and we’ve put together a summary of how we’ve been called to serve God in this community.
Worship: Worship is the core of what we are here for as Christians and what God created us to do. We have a Sunday Morning Worship Service at 9:00 am and a Sunday Evening Worship Service at 4:00pm. Our worship service involves prayer, singing songs of praise to God and a sermon in which we learn more about Christ and what he has done for us.
As a church we hold to a Reformed perspective of worship.
Fellowship: Interacting with fellow Christians is an important part of our ministry here at Living Water. Each Sunday, after the morning worship service, we have a time to talk and discuss with each other. Sometimes we have scheduled times together as a church – such as our annual church picnic – but often families will interact informally to enjoy one another’s company, get to know each other, and to mutually encourage one another in our faith.
Educate: While our Sunday sermons are often an important time of education there are many opportunities throughout the week to study the Bible more. All ages have an engaging inspiring activity to help them grow in their faith. We would like to have you join us in any of these opportunities.
Evangelize: After Jesus rose from the dead he commanded his disciples to take the gospel to all the nations of the earth. We believe that this command applies to us as a church today and we also see evangelism as a privilege to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to others. As Christians we encourage each other to do this with those we meet on a daily basis. Some of the ministries we participate in with other local churches ares:
- Sunday Meadows Retirement Home: The youth groups from several local churches conduct a service two Sundays each month at a local old age home. The youth lead in singing and the service includes a short meditation. Everyone is invited to attend!
- Day in the Park: On a few Saturdays the summer, a morning of fun and games is hosted in various parks in Brantford. A simple gospel message is shared at these events. This is a great time to meet new people in the community, get to know them a bit better and invite them to a worship service.
- Mission De Vida: The Brantford area has a large amount of Spanish speaking migrant workers. This is a ministry that shares God’s Word through a message in Spanish, serves a meal and hosts soccer matches throughout the summer.
Serve: When Jesus was on earth He showed that He not only cared about a person’s spiritual well being but also that God cared for their physical needs as well. Serving one another with the love of Christ is an important ministry of the church. As a church we encourage our members to use their gifts and time to serve the community through various organized opportunities.
