Welcome Information

The Power of Prayer

Prayer has always been a pillar of Christian faith. The power of prayer is proven to have healing qualities, both emotionally and physically. Prayer is an important part of our worship services, fellowship groups and our daily lives. Many prayers have been answered, and miracles have occurred within our congregation, thanks be to the Lord Jesus Christ.

Sunday School

Sunday School classes are offered for all age groups. In addition to children’s Sunday School classes, True Vine offers several adult classes. Sunday School is held Sunday mornings from 9:30 – 10:45 am.

Bible Study

Bible Study happens here at True Vine on several different aspects. You can be involved in Bible Study in one of our Joshua’s Army Cell Groups, or in our Leadership Academy, or in our Sunday School Classes. We teachers tackle difficult theological subjects and try to interpret and apply the subject matter to our lives. Studying scriptures in a group gives people the opportunity to discuss the meaning of God’s word and to share ideas on living out the gospel.

Family Fun

In our busy society, families need extra support. A strong faith life can help families build strong, loving relationship with God and with each other. Our church is a place for families to grow together.

A Letter to Fathers

 

Wow! Father’s Day is once again upon us. Where did the time go? It seems like it was yesterday we were celebrating Father’s Day. I want to take the time to celebrate FATHERS everywhere. Is it just me, but I am struggling with the reality that it is hard to find good fathers today? I hear so many stories from so many young people about how their dad was not there for them. How their dad walked out on them. So, to all the FATHER’S that stuck around, supported their families, that was there when their children needed them and gave all the love that they had to their families, HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! Here is what I want to say to you all today when I think of a Father:

F is never FORSAKING to stand tall in the face of adversity

A is for all the AFFECTION you have given your family

T is for TEACHING your family the ropes so they too will one teach others    how to hold on

H is for HELPING your children do their homework

E is for ENCOURAGING your family for BE all that God would have them to

BE

R is for REMEMBERING to be human, but even in all the limitations of being

human, your remain to be a very special person to your family.

Thank you FATHERS!

Grace & Peace

Overseer Trevor D. Alexander +

2014 Pentecost Letter

A Letter from the Overseer

Theme: The Power of Pentecost

But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Acts 1:8

I’ve always enjoyed the imagery of Pentecost. At Pentecost marks a day when language barriers that once divided us falls and Christians rejoice at the message of Jesus Christ. People of different tongues begin to hear and understand the Gospel!

Here in Texas and in many parts of the U.S., people are having the discussion about what language or languages that we should be using in the workforce. I find it interesting that while we are discussing the use of language and how language can be used to separate us, that at Pentecost, the Holy Spirit came to unify us.

For as many years as I can remember, our Congress has talked about Immigration Reform, especially during Election Years. Without doubt, the topic of citizenship is mentioned. Here again at Pentecost, the concerns were not about National Citizenship, but Kingdom Citizenship. In a world where we are experiencing increase in violence, wars, famine, etc, through Pentecost we can see hope through the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

“But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. Thisis the power we celebrate on Pentecost. Not the power to destroy communities, but the power to, in some cases, rebuild and in others establish a community where we can all experience the Good News. A POWER to tear down barriers! A POWER to heal generational wounds! A POWER to break down cultural barriers! A Power to tear down the racial divide! A POWER to minister to the forgotten, the marginalized, and those on the fringe of Life!

If we believe the Promise and the Power of Pentecost, then may be if we all work together, we can all “turning the world upside down.” “But when they did not find them, they dragged Jason and some brethren to the rulers of the city, crying out, “These who have turned the world upside down have come here too,” (Acts 17:6). Are you ready to be a world changer? Are you ready to turn your community upside down? This is the POWER of Pentecost.


A Mother’s Day Tribute

A Mother’s Day Tribute

Overseer Trevor D. Alexander

Yes, Mother’s Day is coming! What is a mother? Well a mother is God’s special gift to humanity. Think about it, where would you be today without your mother’s tender loving care? I know, there are some people reading this article saying, “What, my mother was not loving and tender.” I am fully aware that not all mothers are shine under God’s light of love and tender mercy. Can you find one thing to give thanks for concerning your mother? Think about it! Let me give you one think, you are here in the land of the living. In spite of how bad you feel your mother was to you, she chose to give birth to you. That is something to be thankful for!
Most mothers have the awesome task of sustaining a home and under their watchful eyes; the children grow up to be strong productive citizens with strong moral convictions. Many of us will buy cards, make that special phone call, but that special gift, trying to please our mothers, but the greatest gift you can give your mother is your untiring love.
There is a creed in Robert Fulghum’s wonderful book, All I Really Need To Know I Learned In Kindergarten. It is called the “Storytellers Creed” here is part of the creed:
I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge.
That dreams are more powerful than facts.
That hope always triumphs over experience
That laughter is the only cure for grief.
And I believe that love is stronger than death.
—Robert Fulghum

Love really is stronger than death. The Bible informs us that a good name is better at ones death than at ones birth. So today, give the greatest gift you can give, the gift of love. Reba Mcentire said in one of her songs, “Love is not love until you give it away.”

 What is a Mother?

A Mother has so many things to do,
From washing, ironing, cleaning to tying a shoe.
She scrubs, she mends, she cooks and sews,
She bathes the children and washes their clothes.
When they forget to wash their faces clean,
And their clothes are the muddiest you’ve ever seen,
Who repairs the clothes and scrubs them like new?
Of course, that is what a Mother will do.
Who becomes the doctor or the nurse when they are ill,
Applying a bandage or giving them a pill?
Who becomes a teacher when a child has homework?
She must never her duty shirk.
Who becomes a detective to find a toy or a book?
For missing things she must look and look?
Who becomes a listener to every heartache,
To every accomplishment that a child makes?
Who scolds their children when they are naughty,
Or remind them of God when they are to haughty?
Who tends her family with love and patience, too?
Of course that is what a Mother will do.
