Who We Are
Living Water United Church of Christ is a community of people who are followers of Jesus deeply rooted within the traditions of the African American Church. We have become a multicultural multiracial household of faith. We believe that in God's Beloved Community all of humanity has been created with a deep and intrinsic value. Each human being brings to the world gifts and graces that enhance other human beings' existence in the world. To that end, Living Water United Church of Christ welcomes and celebrates all of humanity regardless of race, color, ethnicity, gender, gender expression, gender identity, sexual orientation, family structure, age, faith background, educational status, economic status, physical or mental ability, national origin, culture or marital status within the full life of the congregation. We affirm everyone's ability to partake and share in the life, leadership, ministry, fellowship, worship, blessings and responsibilities of this congregation of Jesus Christ.

I Am Human One Day Fast and Rally for Justice
In a time where profit has taken precedent over people, it is critical for us to support workers as they unite to assert their human rights and dignity. People are not just workers, measured solely in production. We are laborers of love and deserve the right to be protected through the unionization that Martin Luther King died fighting for 50 years ago. To honor Martin Luther King's legacy, Philadelphia must win the right to unions for all. On April 4th, POWER invites you to join hospitality workers with a one-day fast abstaining from food, buying, and working. We also ask you to wear all black in solidarity with workers. Support workers as they proclaim, “I Am Human” by participating in the "I Am Human Campaign One Day Fast for Justice." Actions for the day can be found below. 8:00 AM - Joint Muslim and Jewish prayer service with fasters Mishkan Shalom Synagogue (Lower Level | 4101 Freeland Ave., Philadelphia, PA 19128) 12:00 PM – Bible study and prayer with Reverend Alyn Waller of Enon Tabernacle Baptist Church | Arch St. United Methodist Church (55 N Broad St, Philadelphia, PA 19107) 5:00 PM – Mass prayer vigil with all faith, community, and labor supporters | Thomas Paine Plaza (1401 John F.
