Listen, Obey & Be Kind

Jessica Bennett realized that she needed to take the advice that she had been giving her own child for years. Read her story. Our family stopped making New Year's Resolutions a few years ago. Instead, every January, my family chooses words we feel like God has really placed on our hearts to focus on for that year. My word for 2016 was  Selah , and my word for 2017 is  Listen . God has given me MANY opportunities over this past year and a half to learn a LOT about... Read More

Hope for Mozambique

Audrey Watkins grew up at Trietsch, and it was through Mission Mozambique that God revealed His plan for her life. Read Audrey's story, and join us for the Mozambique Silent Auction and Mozambique Live  to support this worthy ministry. It's difficult for me to put into words what my experiences in Mozambique mean to me. Since I was eight years old, I knew that I wanted to go to Africa. I guess I "felt a calling," as some would say. When I first told my mom... Read More

Church & Baseball

Life Groups don't have to be gooey and emotional. Kristy Jordan thinks her group is a lot like a baseball game: Growing up I never watched baseball. My dad didn't like it so it was never on at our house. We were all about the Cowboys, Spurs, and golf. From the little I had seen of it, I thought baseball was so boring. Why would anyone be interested in watching it? On the other hand, my husband is a huge Rangers fan and an all-around baseball fan. He comes from a family of... Read More

Ministry of Presence

As a missionary, Sherrill Johnston learned that building relationships is often more important than the work being done: During my ten years of mission work in the remote far reaches of South America, I never ceased to be totally infatuated with the women's remarkable talent of weaving and creating tapestries of brilliant colors and design. They were master artisans! Not only did I have a deep admiration for their handiwork but the tapestry itself provided JUST the...

Small Moment, Big God

Chris Robinson shares how Life Groups have helped him see God's work in the little moments: On the Monday before Valentine's Day, I went to Tom Thumb to pick up a card and flowers for my wife, Denise. I was just going through the normal grocery store routine when the lady working the checkout, Antoinita, began to talk to me. As I listened to her, phrases she used struck a chord with me. She looked at the flowers and card and started talking about the blessings of my marriage:... Read More

I Live Here

I am Brandon. Today I pray for you: May God’s call on your life lead you to ministry in your own community. May partnership and friendship be the start of a beautiful foundation in communities everywhere. I grew up in South Dallas. It's not that no one gets out and becomes successful. That's not part of the problem. The problem is that we get out, we find success and we stay away. We don't give this neighborhood the chance to benefit from our growth. Not me. I found... Read More

Know Us

I am Mark. Pray with me today: I pray for a renaissance. We have great ingredients in our community and it is time to make them better. Help us to preserve the integrity of our community as we build a strong place that is bright and diverse. Let it celebrate our brothers and sisters and the vibrant heritage of South Dallas. We need the church. We need the church in very real ways. Brothers and sisters in Christ, this great community needs you. We need jobs. We've got to bring jobs... Read More

From Negative to Positive

I am Jay, pray with me today: May the hearts of all of those who pray for the work that we are doing with Zip Code Connection be united in a greater community of God's love and grace. I need God’s love to share God's love. I grew up in Garland, but most of my family was in South Dallas. My cousins were my best friends and they lived there and my best friend was there. I graduated from Rockwall High School and moved to South Dallas to join them. I say that I was on my negative... Read More

Sometimes Days are Hard

I am Glenda. Pray with me today: I pray for world peace. I pray for peace in my community. I pray for all of the people and families that have lost loved ones to violence here. I pray for those incarcerated. I pray for the children. May we all find peace. I hope our children can hear this message: Come up out of the streets. All there is in the streets is death. I don't want to watch another drive-by shooting on the corner. I want to see our children getting an education. I want to see... Read More

I Talk Too Much

Have you been wondering where this idea of Life Groups came from? It goes back all the way to John Wesley. Denise Robinson shares what bringing Life Groups to Trietsch has meant to her. Join us for our next launch party on May 7! Chatterbox. Chatty Cathy. Parakeet. Yammerer. Babbling Brook. Rattletrap. These are all names I was called during my school years. (I am probably still called these names just not to my face so much anymore.) Almost...

Pride in the Street

I am Steven. Pray with me today: Let us find the beauty in our neighborhoods, neighbors and strangers. Give us strength to do the work in South Dallas that needs to be done to support a community working to better itself. There are clear signs that this community has suffered some hits along the way. When you drive in to South Dallas, you will see vacant buildings and lots, deterioration around the streets, and overgrowth. It might seem to the outsider that there is a lack of pride of...
