WINGS Pin Presentation

In grateful response to God’s love for us, guided by the Holy Spirit, we strive to have healthy WINGS to ensure our faith soars. WINGS is an acronym that represents the five characteristics of a Christian disciple, and when lived out in one’s daily life, these WINGS become life giving to the individual and the world. Here at FUMC Allen, we have created a series of booklets meant to guide people through each of these characteristics and give the opportunity…

Earn Your WINGS

What’s essential for a long journey or a long flight? Your first thoughts might be good music, plenty of snacks, clothing, money, or gas. While all of these things and more are necessary, nothing is as essential as a road map, a GPS, or a flight plan to get you to where you’re going. The same is true for our faith journey. Why WINGS? Scripture calls us to be and to make disciples of Jesus Christ. So, how do we live,…

DISCIPLE Bible Study

We cannot fathom how much God loves us! But most of us do not have the close relationship with Jesus Christ that we desire because we do not spend the time to STUDY God’s Word. Bible study is necessary to grow in our discipleship, yet in our busy world we are not willing to make it a priority in our lives. Luke 24:45 tells us that the Holy Spirit will open our minds so that we can gain greater understanding…
