World Water Day

March 22 is World Water Day

Over 1 billion people in the world lack sustainable access to fresh water.  Global Ministries is raising awareness about the critical needs for fresh and accessible water around the world through the Water for All! campaign.  Water is a vital ingredient for life. It is a gift from God for all creation and should be viewed as such a gift, not a commodity for profitable gain. As responsible stewards of God's gifts, we need to help protect the gift of water by going beyond verbal expressions of concern -- we must act. We invite you to learn why water is a critical issue for study and action.
