God does not care about that Diet Coke or Chocolate you gave up for 40 days! He cares more about what you’re giving up that’s inside of you!

Try giving up complaining.
Try giving up being a worrier.
Try giving up neglecting self-care.
Try giving up putting down others to help you feel better.
Give it up!

We have entered into the Lenten Season. It’s the 40 days (excluding Sundays) before Easter where we observe this time as preparation and focus. It aligns with the time that Jesus spent in the wilderness.
Here are four ways you can observe Lent:

#giveitup - Give up something that is distracting you from your important relationships. Give up that one vice or craving as a sacrifice for this season.

#plugin - connect with something that helps you get closer to God.

#serve - begin serving and volunteering at your local church or seek out a church home and get involved.

#ShareIt - make it communal. Share Jesus and your Lenten sacrifice within community. It Helps create a closer connection of believers in a small group.

Who We Are?

In 2019, Rev. Vashti Jasmine Saint-Jean was assigned to be the lead pastor of the New Jerusalem African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church by Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie, which is located in the Northpark - Elm Thicket area of Dallas, Texas within a block of Love Field Airport. In fact, the original location of the church that is now located on Tyree Street was located where Love Field Airport now stands.

In an effort to continue to rebrand, revive and restore the New Jerusalem AME Church, Rev. Saint-Jean launched a Vision 2020 campaign soon after taking the helm and aggressively launched new church programming and community outreach programs under the heading of Love City DFW and a social media campaign under the heading #LoveCityatLoveField in order to tie the church to its locale.

As a result, the church has grown in membership and is active in creating community partnerships with local businesses, local resources and local schools.

The rebranding helped usher the New Jerusalem AME Church further into relevant ministry and further unify the local church body with the surrounding community, the first of which was initiated by it's previous pastors.

New Jerusalem AME Church was birthed in 2006 out of the merging of two historic AME churches: Knight Chapel AME Church and Simms Chapel AME Church.

Simms Chapel African Methodist Episcopal Church was established in 1890 by the Rev. Wash Simms who came from the White Rock Community of Dallas, Texas. Rev. Simms for whom the church was named was one of the most powerful preachers of his time. The original plot of ground where Simms Chapel stood was donated to this church by Rev. Myers of Carrollton, Texas, which was unique in that the land was donated by a white minister to a black church. It is now the location of Dignity Memorial Funeral Home in Carrollton, Texas.​

The church was later relocated when the State Highway Department purchased part of the land for the highway. After some time, the church decided it was time to build its last edifice. They met for two years in an elementary school and with the help of their building fund, special projects and some financial assistance from the sister churches in the Episcopal District, Simms Chapel was able to build and pay off the church in one year. That edifice still stands to this day.

Simms Chapel AME's last edifice was sold as the church merged with another church, Knight Chapel AME Church.

Knight Chapel AME Church was organized in 1884 on Old Tom Field Road. The property was given to Bro. Gilbert Knight who became one of the trustees of Knight Chapel AME Church. The first property was located in the Elm Thicket area and was sold for the expansion of the Love Field Airport. The church then moved to North Park. In 1906, an edifice was erected and the cornerstone was laid under the pastoral charge of Rev. W.S. Grisby. In 1924, Rev. W.S. Bush led the church to be built on Victoria. Once again, the land had to be sold for the expansion of the community school which is now the K.B. Polk Elementary School. The church then moved to its present location where, New Jerusalem/ Love City now worships, after two lots were purchased.

In September 1987, Knight Chapel celebrated 103 years of growth with a Homecoming Service. It was during this time where the church under the leadership of Rev. Billy C. Wren that plans for the construction of a new building was announced. The construction began in the December of 1987 and completed December 1988. The church edifice was dedicated in March 1989, however, the current Pastor, Rev. B.C. Wren passed away and a memorial service was held for Rev. Wren in 1989. Due to the dedication, courage and strength of Rev. Wren and the members, a new church was built where New Jerusalem now worships.

In 2006, Knight Chapel under the leadership of the late Rev. Gary Johnson that Presiding Elder Wright proposed the merging of Knight Chapel with Simms Chapel as both congregations had needs which the other could provide. The two churches were combined under the name of New Jerusalem AME Church and Rev. Sylvester Patton, II served as its inaugural pastor.
