Growing In Giving
One Amarillo family with a mindset of doing for others.
Investing in lives. Staying invested through life.
The Schniederjans: Lacie & Bleu, Emerson & Ella
But employ whatever God has entrusted you with in doing good, all possible good, in every possible kind and degree, to the household of faith and to all men. – John Wesley
he Schniederjan family first got involved with ACH through an invitation to provide Christmas gifts for a pair of sisters living here.
It was an impactful experience – particularly because the Schniederjans, who also visited a cottage, have two daughters of their own. “In a short time, we were able to get a glimpse of what ACH is doing in these kids’ lives, and we came away with a heart for the ministry and for the girls we met. Our children were 5 and 3 at the time, but they still remember the girls by name and ask about them periodically.”
“The way the ACH pours into these kids’ lives is something we admire. We also feel strongly about supporting our community! ACH impacts our community and the lives of children right here in Amarillo.”
The Schniederjan family originally stayed connected with us through Christmas giving. Lacie spearheaded an effort with Potter-Randall County Medical Alliance to collect gift cards to restaurants and activities, and last year Emerson and Ella created “The Christmas Cafe.”They recruited friends and sold goodies, raising around $600 for ACH. “They’re already thinking about this year’s cafe and how to make it bigger and better!”
At the Roots & Wings event, the Schniederjans decided to become monthly donors. “We believe in the mission and ministry, strongly. In addition to being called to do so, it is convenient to give monthly! I like knowing it’s automatic. I love that ACH offers this option – anyone can do it so easily!”
Monthly giving helps the family stay invested and connected. “I think we as a family have more conversations about ACH now. It stays more in the forefront of our thoughts vs a few times a year. We feel honored to give! It truly feels like a gift to us to be able to help.”
