1921 – George Estes – a man from Sachse who was 46 years old at the time, made what was a long trip at that time…. from Sachse to the Coliseum at Fair Park in Dallas to attend a revival conducted by a lady named… Aimee-Semple McPherson. In that meeting, George Estes was miraculously healed of rheumatism in his back and had a lasting encounter with the Holy Spirit.
Brother Eastes brought that experience back to Sachse in the form of cottage prayer meetings that were held in various homes. Several visible miracles, like the healing of lady named Mrs. Day from Tuberculosis, caused the prayer meetings crowds to swell and the growing group of believers began to think about starting a church.
1925 – They moved into an empty bank building in Sachse which they soon outgrew. In 1926, Brother and Sister Easter and a handful of others, went out among the town & businesses to ask for donations to build a church. They then bought a lot at the 3rd street location in Sachse, and the Sachse Assembly of God’s first church building was constructed by all donated labor. Pastor – Daniel Lewis
From Sachse Assembly of God, other churches were built in Wylie, Garland, Lavon and Trenton.

Aug -1929-Mar 1933 – The Great Depression was the worst economic downturn in the history of the industrialized world, lasting from 1929 to 1939. It began after the stock market crash of October 1929, which sent Wall Street into a panic and wiped out millions of investors. Over the next several years, consumer spending and investment dropped, causing steep declines in industrial output and employment as failing companies laid-off workers. By 1933, when the Great Depression reached its lowest point, some 15 million Americans were unemployed and nearly half the country’s banks had failed.
