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. 
 
ESTHER’S HOUSE HOUSEWARMING – (October 2021) For the opening of Esther’s House, an Aftercare Home for exploited women in San  Pedro Sula, Honduras, we will be providing a housewarming, blessing them with many necessary items to complete the homes’ operations.  
 
COUNTRY TEXAS REPORTER FESTIVAL– (October 2021) This year we will be volunteering at a booth at this festival in Waxahachie.  Look for us if you visit the festival.  We will have on green shirts that say “First Waxahachie” in white!
 
CHICK-FIL A LUNCH BOXES-In September 2021 we provided Chick-Fil A lunches for the staff and faculty of Advantage Academy in Waxahachie.  We received a thank you from a teacher, noting, “Thank you so much for providing us with this delicious lunch this past Thursday!  It really buoyed my spirits and made my day!”
 
BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE-This year, 2021, we adopted Marvin Elementary and set a goal to equip each classroom with the supplies it needed for the beginning of school.  We were able to deliver paper, erasers, scissors, glue, crayons, markers, pencils, and folders along with other needed items that were all donated by members of our church.  We were also able to donate gift cards with money that was donated.  Thank you First Assembly for giving so generously to bless the students and educators at Marvin.
 
BLESSINGS GIVEAWAY-First Assembly joined with several other ministries and businesses in Waxahachie to bless people with food and goody bags for their family and kids during the Holiday Season 2020.  The event was a drive through where volunteers loaded up cars with bread, produce, milk, meat, and games and activities for the family.  Thank you to all who supported the event and volunteered.  
 
SAGU OUTREACH– First Assembly joined with Chick-Fil-A to provide lunch for 300 SAGU students in October 2020.  We enjoyed our visit to campus and our connection with the SAGU community!
 
BACK TO SCHOOL BACKPACK GIVEAWAY-(2020) 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 – (2020) 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- (2020) 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 – (2020) 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 -(2020) 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 – (2020) 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-(2020) 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.
