Living Waters Fellowship

Living Waters Fellowship is a church that provides afterschool programs, adult ESL classes, and breakfast to the local community.

Mission: To proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ by reaching out to those lost in cycles of poverty in our neighborhood and to facilitate reaching the lost throughout the NYC area, as well as the world.

Vision: To facilitate the evangelism of the lost and the growth and maturity of the body of Christ, through our various programs and by empowering the body of Christ by exposure to inner city ministry.

Over 250 volunteers serve with Living Waters each year, serving Saturday community breakfasts, teaching ESL and getting to know neighborhood kids through sports and crafts.
Our grant funds support Living Waters' community meals as well as youth programming, including the after-school programs and weekend sports and crafts.
A team of committed HFNY Volunteers started providing ESL tutoring over five years ago to meet a need of many of the families attending the Saturday morning breakfasts.

Saturday Breakfast

Volunteers prepare, cook, and serve a delicious pancake breakfast to the Bushwick community which includes families, the elderly, and the homeless. Volunteers can also offer prayer to the guests and bus tables and clean up after the breakfast. 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 9:00 to 11:30AM. 

English as a Second Language

Volunteers provide one-on-one ESL tutoring to mostly Spanish-speaking adult students. Saturdays from 11:30AM to 1:00PM. No teaching experience is necessary, but a three-month commitment is required. All materials and curriculum is provided. 

Sports Ministry

Up to 10 volunteers play sports (basketball, volleyball, dodgeball) and games with children aged 6-12 years old at the church gym on Saturdays from 10:00AM to 12:00PM. Volunteers can also lead a 10-15 minute Bible lesson. 

Model Builders

On the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 12:00 to 2:00PM, volunteers serve lunch and lead arts and crafts for the children.

“When times are rough, I come over here and have a really good breakfast, and it holds me out all day. It's like having a family, too. You have a place you can come, and everybody knows your name. They remember your name here!”

Why Living Waters Fellowship Loves His Toy Store
November 10, 2014
In December, we'll partner with several of our affiliates, including Living Waters Fellowship, to host His Toy Stores for families in their communities. Families are invited to come to the store and shop for new toys at no cost, and also learn about the services and resources our affiliates offer. Here, Pastor Anna Mandile from Living Waters tells us why His Toy Store is such a life-giving outreach for the families they serve.
