“If I will not open for you the windows of heaven
And pour out for you such blessing
That there will not be room enough to receive it.

BACK TO SCHOOL BACKPACK GIVEAWAY-First Assembly joined with Canales Furniture Store, Heart and Home Ministries and others to buy supplies, stuff backpacks and hand them out to students in Waxahachie.  
 
PLEASANT HILLS CHILDREN’S HOME – First Assembly was able to provide a generous love offering  to the home for ongoing expenses.  Mike and Eulessya Miller, the owners of Ennis Janitorial blessed PHCH by donating and delivering a full palette of much needed paper goods and cleaning supplies!  Thank you to the Millers and to everyone who gave to make this servolution possible.
 
RESPIRATORY THERAPIST APPRECIATION-BAYLOR SCOTT AND WHITE, WAXAHACHIE- First Assembly was able to give each therapist a gift box and provide pizza for every shift as our way of saying thanks to all the health care workers who are on the front lines keeping us safe.  Thanks to Jordan E.’s Popcorn and Candy Company for helping us make the gift boxes extra special!
 
FOSTER FAMILY GAME NIGHT BAGS – In an effort to provide a much needed break from the strain of the current restrictions we were privileged to put together a fun filled Game Night Bag for the Ellis County Division of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.  Your faithful giving made this possible.  Special thanks to Heidi Dollar for organizing and facilitating this outreach!
 
SALVATION ARMY FOOD PANTRY – Because of the generous donations of our church family  we were able to provide much needed food items as well as a cash offering to help the Salvation Army  with their operating budget.  The Salvation army is feeding many more people due to the pandemic and is doing an incredible work in our community.  
 
MISSIONARY BLESSING – We had a unique opportunity to bless our missionaries to Belgium, Blair and Dina Bonin.  They traveled to Waxahachie to spend time with family during the pandemic and we were able to prepare their apartment that they will live in for the next few weeks that they are here.  Thank you to the volunteers that made all of this possible. 
 
WAXAHACHIE POLICE DEPARTMENT-We were honored to bless some of our heroes during this crisis and show appreciation for their service and sacrifice.  We committed our church to pray for them and gave them hand sanitizer that was donated by Brandon Gazaway.

OUR CORE VALUES

 

We unashamedly and uncompromisingly strive to be:
 
BIBLICALLY  BASED
God’s Word is our guide, authority, and conscience in everything we do.  Psalm 119:105
 
FULLY DEVOTED TO CHRIST
We measure our success by our full devotion to Christ and our ability to be and make disciples.  Luke 9:23
 
GROUNDED IN GRACE
We acknowledge our complete dependence on the goodness and grace of God.  We have experienced it, therefore we eagerly extend it to others.  Ephesians 2:89
 
PASSIONATE ABOUT WORSHIP AND PRAYER
We are called to exalt Christ as the center of every aspect of our lives.  John 4:23  We believe the attitude and action of prayer is essential to everything we do.  Colossians 4:2 
 
COMMITTED TO PEOPLE
We believe that people matter to God, therefore they  matter to us.  Jesus came to seek and save the lost and has left us here to do the same.  Luke 19:10
 
FOCUSED ON MINISTRY AND SERVICE
Every believer is a minister and we believe that the Holy Spirit has imparted to each one a spiritual gift; empowering  and equipping us to minister out of our gifts and passion. 1 Peter 4:10, Colossians 3:17
 
A PEOPLE OF EXCELLENCE
Because God gave His very best for us we offer excellence in our service to Him.  In serving Christ, love will always be our motivation and excellence will always be our goal.  Psalms 29:2
