  • The Texas Historical Commission plaque designating Bering Memorial UMC as a historic landmark

  • A bulletin from when the church was located on McKinney and Milam that includes a picture of the church at that time, 1858 – 1924

  • The Bering Memorial UMC congregation circa 1950s

  • The courtyard as it was

  • The AIDS banner

  • The sanctuary, windows, banners, and the Cross

  • Choirs of the past
