Mission Priority

Eagle Harbor Church has named “Living Water” as a mission priority.  “Living Water” is a phrase Jesus uses in an encounter with a Samaritan woman in the Gospel of John.  This well-side meeting between culturally estranged individuals begins with the physical need for water and leads to deep conversation about the quest for truth and the development of a spiritual life.

We believe that Water is Life. We drink deeply of the physical water nourishing our bodies that comes to us as a gift of God, and imbibe the Living Water that blesses the spirit.

We are committed to: learning to be good stewards of our water resources on the island and in the Salish Sea; taking action to preserve and restore unsullied water; offering loving hospitality to those who need food, water and community; and gathering around the well of spiritual wisdom gifted to us, freely sharing with those who thirst for truth.

Watering Help Needed!  Please join us!  The newly-acquired Bainbridge Island Land Trust property, Shoreline Preserve, has a lot of recently planted native plants needing water this summer!   EHCC is setting up two crews of waterers: one for Monday evenings, and one for Thursday eveningsTraining provided; satisfaction guaranteed!  Please contact Elissa Kratzer (206-451-4698) or Jennifer (in the church office) with your questions and your interest-in-helping.
