Fill the Bucket Challenge
Clean water is essential to life, yet over 780 million people don't have access to it. Families throughout the world subside off of 5 gallons of water a day, and often this water is unsanitary, while the average American uses 300 gallons of water daily. We want to be a church that is for the community, both locally and globally. So we have taken on an ambitious challenge.
Our goal is to raise $60,000 to fund a Water4 project that will provide convenient access to clean drinking water to an entire community of 3,000 people in Lamadai, Tanzania. This system will include 150 taps that provide water access directly outside of homes, businesses, churches, and other community buildings.
We invite you to join us in the Fill the Bucket Challenge to help provide #Water4Lamadai! Read below for more information on the project and how you can help! And be sure to join us on Easter Sunday, April 1 where 100% of our offering will go to this cause!
Water4 is a Christian non-profit organization that is attacking the water crisis around the world. Water4 enters into communities without clean water access, partner with local Non-governmental organizations to equip and teach local entreprenuers how to drill clean water wells. This results in employment and a growing business, as well as progressively provides wells to communities in need.

Ways to Fundraise

- Take your water bill from the month of February and pay it forward! Can you match your water bill and donate it to provide water to those in Lamadai? Could you double your water bill? Triple? Could you find 10 friends to donate their water bill as well?
Fund a tap:
- Funding a water tap at a home, school, church or other community building costs $400, and would provide clean and convenient water to families in Lamadai. Could you partner with friends or family to fund one of these 150 water taps?
