Huggins Elementary Adoption
So, why would a church adopt a school?
On April 28, 2013, WordServe Church pledged to adopt Huggins Elementary to help fulfill our church vision of transforming communities one relationship at a time. By strategically partnering with Huggins, it allows a greater community impact and provides a rich environment for real relationship building.

See Huggins teacher, Jill Norwood, and Huggins parent, Erika Yelverton, explain how a few willing workers could change the community for generations!
The following opportunities are currently available to support the Huggins Community:
FaithFULL Kids is a community organization born out of the love of Christian hearts from Faith United Methodist Church, First United Methodist Church Fulshear, and WordServe Church. Our mission is to transform the community by providing nutritious meals to families of food-insecure school-aged children on weekends and holidays, and to provide serving opportunities that will guide people to grow as joyful servants of Jesus. We hope that our work will not only improve the lives of the children being served, but also bring glory to God. FaithFULL Kids volunteers fill backpacks with nonperishable food items at our weekly Packing Parties. For more information about FaithFULL Kids or to sign up to volunteer, click here.
