"A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.

By this everyone will know that you are my disciples if you love one another. " John 13:34-35



The next water delivery date is Saturday, June 1, 2024

In the last 2 years, Ascension has collected and delivered nearly 1,250 cases of water to Sandbranch, an unincorporated community 20 miles southeast of downtown Dallas with no running water. About 150 descendants of ex-slaves live here. Until the 1980s, they had wells, but that water got contaminated. All of its residents live below the federal poverty line and do not have clean water for drinking, cooking, or bathing.

Anyone interested in helping deliver water and helping with the Sand Branch community food pantry by distributing food alongside the pantry workers is welcome. On Saturday, June 1,  arrive at church by 7 am to load vehicles, depart for Sand Branch at 7:30 am, and arrive at Sand Branch by 8 am to unload water. After we unload the water, anyone who wants to stay and help with the pantry setup and distribution can do so. Pantry hours are from 9 to 11 am.
