HE WHO BELIEVETH IN ME

He who believeth in me will live for eternity.

But what does it mean to believe in the Almighty?

Are you a true believer if you attend church?

Giving ten pieces of silver from your purse.

If I give twenty will my chances be greater than yours?

If I have none to give will they allow me through their doors?

Am I giving to the true needy, be it enemy or friend?

Or do I think that I am paying off my earthly sins?

Do I give a hundred pieces of gold to help build a large church?

But not throw down one piece of silver to the poor or the hurt.

Jew, Christian, Catholic, Protestant, Methodist, Pentecostal, Evangel, all

Religions of now, and those of which to come.

Tell me, do I allow religion to separate me, but preach that we are all one.

If we believe that GOD made us all then let not man keep us apart.

For the true meaning of GOD is not in a synagogue, church, or temple,

but only in the heart.

Be his words spoken in the forest, on the mountain, river, house, fortress or in

a prison cell.

It does not matter where they are spoken as long as they are spoken well.

Be it from a Rabbi, Priest, Preacher, Monk, or from a mere child.
Be it spoken to just a few for it does not have to be a crowd.

If it spoken in the lowest valley it will ring out on the highest mountain top.

God’s voice will be that of the flood of rivers not that of morning dewdrops.

The cup that the Lord holdeth is filleth to the brim.

One must not believe partially, but only totally to the Lord within.

One who goes to church every day but still does wrong.

Has wasted time and money that could had been better spent at home.

Do not waste money on building temples with large golden doors.

But gather your tithes together to feed GOD’s hunger and poor.

You will not go to heaven for being the one who wears the most

beautiful dress.

For it is only he who gives to GOD’s needy is the one who will be blessed.

A great story about one of our own.
OUT-OF-TOWN VARIATIONS YOUTH CHOIR ALUMNI!
To those of you out of town, hello from FUMC Dallas! Believe it or not, my son Adler is (I believe?) in the first class of third-generation Variations this year! And in his first year, they're taking their first overseas tour in June (not first international trip, I know some of you most senior variations took a roadtrip to Mexico City back in the day!).
This year's group will fly to England for their tour in June, and we are reaching out to see if you'd consider donating to this amazing group! As you can imagine, this is a huge financial undertaking. The singers will host their annual fundraiser show in the spring, but for those of you who can't make it... would you consider donating at the link below? No donation is too big or small! Please consider supporting this amazing group of Variations, and if you prefer to pay via check, you can contact me at [email protected] and we'll arrange for that so that you can avoid the online payment transaction fee. Thanks in advance for your support!!!
Lastly, please forward this link to any other Variations alumni you may be connected with, or invite them to like this page. If everyone donated just $25 - $50 each, and invited three of your alumni friends to do it as well, we'd reach out goal before the holidays. Merry Christmas and happy early New Year! -Kevin Wortley, Variations '89 - '95

37 seats still available for tonight! For same-day tickets, please purchase at the door (not online).

My name is Evangelist Ifeanyichukwu Ota. I distribute gospel tracts in hospitals, markets, schools, orphanage Homes, as well as on the streets. There are many lost souls and people eager to read the gospel tracts that they receive.
Please buy me a vehicle to enable the gospel tracts reach families living in the rural communities far from my house. God bless you as you help me take the Good News to lost souls.
Hello Dallas, Grapevine here. Just letting you know that the church family is an exciting one and it is good to know we have a 'location' in downtown Dallas.' Live in Bedford at the Tarrant County Parc Place.

Hello, If you or anyone you know is having a gathering or parties and have food left over, please post it here for those who are in need. Many people struggle everyday. Please don't waste food. May GOD reward you for your kindness. Please share so people know. I am working with agencies who support people in need. They will have access to this page as well. Please share and spread the word for this amazing act of kindness.

Just a couple of suggestions. Please mention to the folks who are picking up about
1.Where it came from
2. How old it is.
3. allergy safety ( Nuts, Milk, Soy, Etc )
4. Religious preference ( Halal, Vegan, Non Veg, Eggs Etc )

This is just so the person who is picking it up knows. Its always good to make sure you are helping someone and not causing more issues for them. May all of you be blessed with lots of happiness for participating in such a movement. Thank you.

We are an inclusive church, welcoming people from all walks of life to show and share God's love since 1926.

Proud moment: Courtney Mitchell shared these photos of the artwork his daughter Rose created on her first day of second grade. Courtney said: “Check out her drawing and what she wrote! I was so touched by this. This was the first time that she ever expressed this to us.”
We love being in a community of faith where even the youngest among us are free to live into exactly where God is leading them! 🥰

From Dr. Stoker as he explored John 6: 51-58:

"I am convinced that Jesus' statement, "I am the bread of life," is an invitation for us to consider the bread of life. Jesus is calling us to know ourselves. Jesus wants us to know ourselves. When we are able to see our lives in this present reality, sharing the Earth with 7 billion neighbors, living with the boundaries we have in this country...and treating our selves with the utmost compassion, care and concern because life is difficult; when we are able to see our existence in its fullness, there is bread enough for me AND bread enough to share. This teaching isn't really about Jesus; this teaching is about what we do with bread, at its most concrete and its most symbolic."
