In the Gospel of John, Chapter 4, Jesus reveals himself to the Samaritan woman at the well, telling her about the Living Water, so “whoever drinks the water I give them will never thirst.” As we prepare ourselves for the season of Lent, one where we often practice fasting and deprivation, let us consider how we can come to embody Christ

in our work, thoughts, and deeds.

     Clean Water for the World (CWFW) has prayerfully asked Courthouse Community UMC  to consider participating in the Lenten Promise this Lent (February 22 – April 9, 2023).

     For many, Lent is an opportunity to reflect inwardly, deepening our understanding and relationship with Christ our Lord. It is an opportunity to take 40 days to be intentional, to take a step closer to Christ. Clean Water For the World (CWFW) would like to walk with our congregation this Lent to deepen our walk, together.

     As a symbol of deepening our Walk with the Lord, many choose an external sign or action to reflect that, such as giving up a flavored beverage. This Lent, let us prayerfully consider taking this a step further and donating what would have been spent on flavored beverages towards a purifier to help provide a community in El Salvador, Guatemala, or Haiti with access to clean water.

Welcome to CCUMC!

We are making disciples of Jesus Christ

for the transformation of the world. 

We believe a disciple is a life-long learner

who influences others to serve. 

A disciple of Jesus Christ isn’t just someone who knows about Jesus, a disciple is someone who knows Jesus!  

A disciple of Jesus Christ

seeks to grow closer to God and closer to others. 


There are no perfect people here at Courthouse Community UMC. 

What you will find here in the heart of Virginia Beach

are people, much like you- 

looking for answers, asking questions, 

and seeking to live and love like Jesus Christ. 

We want you to know that God loves you and so do we!
