Here’s how your donations are changing lives!
A THIRD round of funding was disbursed for 2019! We recently sent $105,000 out for 6 projects, including two in new countries: Dominican Republic and Guatemala. This means over 16,000 more people will drink and bathe with clean water for the first time!

Here are the places where life-changing projects are underway (organized by our partners):

Del Ray Ministries (New ILW partner!)
Dominican Republic – well (New ILW country!)

Living Water International
Kigunga Parish, Uganda – well, filtration, and sanitation

World Vision
Kisaro, Rwanda – well, filtration, and sanitation

Heaven’s Family
Govind Singh Mohalia and Koylatpur Villages, India – 2 wells
Mullana and Narvana Villages, India – 2 wells
San Gabriel, Guatemala – well (New ILW country!)

This is what happens when we align ourselves with God and allow the Holy Spirit to work. Details will soon be shared with the World Changers who funded these projects. We are also working on updating the website to bring you more information on each project.

WaterWorks 2019 Sun, 15 Sep 2019 16:41:54 +0000 Save the Date for WaterWorks, September 28, 9am, North Park

Plan to join us for this fun event for all ages, sponsored by Ingomar Living Waters.

Come for water-themed games and contests, designed to emphasize the world’s water crisis, and (while you are having fun) get you thinking about what YOU can do to help solve it.

The event runs from 9am until noon. Drop in any time and stay as long (or as little) as your time and schedule permits. The event happens at Point Pavilion on Lakeshore Drive in North Park.

How long can you hold a heavy bucket of water without spilling it? How fast can you complete our obstacle courses? There will be two courses: one for young kids and another one for the older kids or “kids at heart!” How much water is used to shower or flush a toilet? You might be surprised.
Experience and learn about water filtration. Water-themed carnival games for all ages will be running the entire time!

This is a can’t miss event. Invite others to join you! We hope to see you all at the Point Pavilion on September 28th! Learn more at

September Message Series Fri, 30 Aug 2019 18:45:15 +0000 Clean, safe and readily available water is a convenience and a “gift” that we often take for granted. Yet many in the world can only dream of such a privilege. According to a recent World Health Organization report, 785 million people in the world lack basic access to clean water.

Throughout the month of September (Sept. 8-29), our Sunday message series, “The Gift of Water” explores the importance and significance of water throughout scripture, giving us insight into how God uses it to heal, refresh, deliver, and celebrate new life.

As we focus on the spiritual significance of water in God’s Word through the message series, we will also learn more about Ingomar Living Waters, a ministry of Ingomar Church, and how we can become “world changers” – helping to bring the gift of clean water to the world.

Join us for the message series, learn about our focus on the mission of Ingomar Living Waters, and plan to attend “Waterworks” – an all-ages water-themed event in North Park on September 28.
