• It All Begins With Water: Living Water International's Relationship with DCC

    20200125 DCC LWI Picture1DCC has partnered with Living Water International for over a decade now. In that time our partnership has reached more than 20 communities across 4 continents. We recently interacted with Julie Hill from LWI as part of our 2020 Advent Conspiracy. Here she explains the work of LWI and how Dungeness Community Church has contributed to their work over the years.


    "It is not by man but God alone that we can continue to find water, Living Water, HIS water, His life, country by country, well by well and gift by gift."

  • Living Water International, Advent Conspiracy & Dungeness Community Church

    In 1990 a group of Christians from Houston, Texas went on a medical mission to Kenya, Africa. While there, they learned that what these Kenyans needed more than medical assistance is clean, safe water.  Dirty water is mainly what was making them ill. This group returned to Houston and formed the nonprofit Living Water International and since that date they have completed 21,058 water projects that provides safe water to over 6 million thirsty people (as of 7/27/20).

    About The Community

    DCC 21 Guat pumping clean water

    The 350 residents of Parcelamiento El Socorro suffered from the water crisis every day. They relied upon hand-dug wells and the local river for all of their needs. Because most of the men in the community worked during the day, the women and children were the ones primarily responsible for collecting the households' water and using it for chores. The fact that they were constantly worried about the amount of water available made their chores all the more burdensome. The water levels in both the wells and the river dwindled. Sometimes there was not enough.

    The community members conserved as much water as they could for drinking and cooking. Sometimes, this meant foregoing hygiene and other household uses. Still, even after rationing their water strictly, they were often overcome with thirst. The thirst was not the residents' only concern, however. Because the water in the springs and river were exposed to the elements, it was full of surface contagions. After drinking or using the water, community members often suffered from water-related illnesses. The water also contained pesticides that had insidious, long- term effects on the community members' bodies. The only way to avoid these maladies was to avoid the water that was essential to life. It was a tragic dilemma. The community members knew that something needed to change.

    Advent Conspiracy 2021 Totals

    Our final totals have come in for DCC's Advent Conspiracy Initiative in 2021.

    Our five local community groups (who are featured farther down in this article) received a total of $25,000. Living Water International received $50,000, which will go toward at least three known wells. In additon, a donor in Texas asked Living Water International to match their own giving with a church and DCC was selected. So an addiional so $40,000 will go toward building wells. So that's $75,000 plus $40,000 which equals a total of $115,000 for Advent Conspiracy this year. Isn't that amazing!

    Psalm 115:1 says "Not to us, O LORD, not to us, but to your name give glory,  for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness!" 

    Thank you to each one of you that were participants. We ask God to go ahead and mobilize these acts of faithfulnees for His glory. Amen 

    The following is a list of our global and local community partners for Advent Conspiracy 2021.

  • Team Living Water to Run the North Olympic Discovery Marathon

    For a number of years, Dungeness Community Church has partnered with Living Water International to connect the world with life giving water. Martin Murray has been a key figure in this relationship. Martin is in the process of assembling a team to participate in the North Olympic Discovery Marathon to be held on June 4 & 5, 2022.  

    All Ages & Skill Levels Welcome

    Team members can run or walk the full marathon, the half marathon, a 10K or a 5K event. This can be an individual, a relay team or it can be done "virtually" at any time in 2022.  It is preferred, however, that we do the race live rather than a virtual event. Team Living Water at the North Olympic Discovery Marathon in 2018
