Community. Defined as a group of people living in the same place or having a particular common interest is somewhat cold and vague compared to the community that we were witness to this past weekend in Waxahachie. Fellowship, purpose, history, and love could all be used to better define the community that came out in full force to support the Samaria Baptist Church this last weekend. What an honor it was to be a part of such an amazing cause right here in Ellis County, the restoration and revitalization of the Samaria Baptist Church of Waxahachie.
Church Deacon Robert Pitts said, "This was once one of the biggest churches in Waxahachie. We are trying to get back to that. Once we get everything organized people will start coming back home. I am hoping that everything will work out to where we will become one successful community.” From the looks of what has and is taking place here, we are that much closer to being one successful community.
