"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


Sunday, February 5 - Friday, March 3


Saturday, March 4th 

(see below for details)

In November 2022, our Ascension community delivered 171 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.

The need is so great! Our next initiative kicks off in just a couple of weeks. We will collect water and cash donations from Sunday, February 5th, through Friday, March 3rd. We will deliver our donations to the Sandbranch community on Saturday, March 4th. Volunteers will meet at the church parking lot at 7:30 a.m. that morning to load vehicles, drive to Sandbranch, and return by 9:00 a.m. We hope you will contribute to this worthy cause in whatever way you can!
