A Message From Our Pastor


We mourn the loss of a dear member of Living Waters Church of God,  Rev. Emmett Hanson.  We will miss his cheerful and contagious smile and love for each one of us. He always greeted everyone with his sincere love of the Lord.  He lived as he believed.  His singing blessed us all.  He was always ready and excited to sing for the congregation and spread the Word through song.  He shared his testimony many times of how the Lord saved him during World War II when his ship sank.  He promised the Lord if HE got him out of his horrible situation he would serve HIM for the rest of his life.  The Lord saved him and he kept his promise.  He continually sang two songs that he wrote that spoke to us all.  He loved the gospel of Jesus Christ and preached the Word of God.  In his songs he wrote, he sang "I Can't Stop" and "I Found The Answer"  We here at Living Waters can attest to the fact that he lived these songs for Emmet NEVER stopped and now he has definitely "Found The Answer to his every prayer and care"   We rejoice his Homegoing.  He is with his blessed Savior forever.  Enjoy Heaven Bro.  Hanson.

We pray peace and comfort for the entire Hanson family in their time of loss and sorrow.
