SERVOLUTION AT FIRST ASSEMBLY
 
First Assembly is always looking for ways to connect with, support, and serve in our local community.  We call these opportunities SERVOLUTION. 
 
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.
