A Better World – One Water Project at a Time

Baptism of Jesus Sunday is a good day to think about our relationship with water. Did you know that more than half of the global population does not have access to safe sanitation? 2.2 billion people still don’t have safe drinking water. Your Mission & Service gifts are building a better world—one water project at a time.
