Getwell Road United Methodist Church

Pastor Bill Beavers – Southaven, MS 

“Making ripples at the church’s water station” is not something you see or hear every day in America’s churches. Yet every time Getwell Road Church members poured water into six tall cylinders located throughout the church campus, they were “making ripples” and investing in the Mission: Water for LIFE outreach.

Each drop of water in the see-through tubes represented dollars raised to provide clean drinking water for thirsty families in Africa.

The congregation, led by Senior Pastor Bill Beavers, raised $40,000 to drill and equip eight water wells in Africa during their unique fundraising campaign.

Families at the Southaven, Mississippi church worked together – making donations or hosting bake sales and yard sales to raise funds for the project.

Getwell Road Church made ripples for God’s Kingdom – ripples that will last well beyond their lifetimes.
