Section Title

The Savior that we serve washed the feet of his disciples and commanded them to do the same for others. Because of this, First Shallowater seeks to humbly meet the needs of those around us. We want to be a light, an encouragement, a resource for the people that God has placed in our path. First Shallowater genuinely desires to be a blessing to our community. We want to partner with city officials, school administrators, coaches, teachers, counselors and others to discover needs in our community and work to meet those needs. In Philippians 2, Paul claims that an attitude of service and humility were the essential characteristics of Jesus, and he challenges the church in Philippi to embody those characteristics as well. We know that serving transforms our hearts. We also know that serving with self-sacrificing love opens up the hearts of others to the gospel. We work with several organizations to serve those in need around us. We intentionally plan opportunities for our church family to engage in serving one another, as well as our community.
