Clean Water Sunday Toolkit
for use any Sunday in 2015

(download below)

 
Living Waters for the World encourages churches to participate in an annual clean water awareness Sunday. Your observance may take place on any Sunday this year.

Clean Water Sunday is inspired by World Water Day, designated by the United Nations in an effort to increase awareness of the world's growing water crisis.

To assist congregations in lifting up the plight of those without access to clean water, Living Waters for the World has prepared a full set of worship resources (liturgies, sermons, music, children's talks, offering materials) and educational materials that can be used or adapted to suit the needs of your group.

All are downloadable by clicking on the links below. Click here to request accompanying posters and offering materials.

We hope that you will join with hundreds of other congregations across the nation that will be offering liturgies, prayers and engaging in dialog and study to further the vision of clean water for all God's children everywhere!
