Each year at CentriKid we have two mission emphasis. Last week you read about our local mission partnership. One Cup of Water is our global mission partner through the IMB. This project is uniquely designed to partner with children ministries. We will be discussing One Cup of Water during Bible study, programming elements, and we want to equip our church group leaders with information about the project.
This project is focusing on meeting the physical needs of villages in South Asia in an effort to make gospel connections with the villages. The statistics of people without clean water are staggering. However, this project recognizes clean water is not merely a social justice effort, but more so it is a means through which the gospel can go forth.
This year while taking your missions offering your group can visualize specifics on how you money will be used. One Cup of Water gives a breakdown of how much money it takes to buy equipment for their ministry.
- New well = $555
- New pump cylinders = $280
- New pump handle = $10
- New pump head = $40
Even now you can start getting your kids excited about raising money for a new well, pump cylinder, handle or head. Check out One Cup of Water’s website to find more specifics about the culture, geography and description of the project. Also, you can find ideas to personalize the project to your children’s ministry through games and activities.
Also as you prepare join us in beginning to pray for One Cup of Water. Below are their specific prayer requests.
