Special Message from Pastor |

"Yesterday, you, the members, Friends, and Family set aside time after Sunday worship to celebrate my birthday with a pre-birthday repast (actual birthday, July 23). I was overwhelmed by your words and expressions of love, gifts, cards, good food, and genuine fellowship. 
 
Today I am simply writing to say thank you. Memorial Tabernacle, you are such an amazing congregation, and it is such as blessing to be your pastor.  I am continually blown away by your compassion, generosity, and willingness to serve; giving of your time and talents; and showing your love towards me. I can only hope that I have inspired all of you as much as you have inspired me. Thank you so much for all that you do.

A special thanks to Pastor Robert Lyons and the Refreshing Fountain COGIC for sharing your gifts and talents with us during the service.

You all have made my birthday special, and I will never forget it." —USK

Sermon Summary | July 22, 2018
“THIS IS FOR THE BIRDS” ( 1 Kings 17:1-7 )

The term or expression means: trivial, worthless, only of interest to gullible people. This could have been the way Elijah felt waiting on God, being fed by scavengers for three years because there was no rain. But remember: God told Elijah what to do. I may not like it, but God’s way is not my way.

What do you do when you feel like the seasons in your life have all dried up? How do you pray when you feel God has forsaken you and doesn’t hear you? What do you do when friends walk away and those who once told you how much they love you have gone? What will your stand be when you know your enemies are waiting for you to fail? The great prophet Elijah was sent by God to tell Ahab that no rain would fall in Israel for 42 months. Though his words were accurate, Elijah had no idea the drought would severely affect his life. The incredible declaration took only a few minutes, but Elijah spent the next three years waiting for rain.

During the drought, Elijah was refreshed by a brook called Cherith and was supplied with food by ravens (17:3-7). The brook eventually dried up, and the ravens retired (at least from the fast-food business). Elijah needed a miracle called rain. From a human perspective, that certainly seemed to be what he needed. Elijah may have asked for rain, but God's season for it had not come.

But Elijah soon discovered the truth we, too, must acknowledge: At times we need God's direction more than His mighty acts. If we allow ourselves to be overwhelmed with what we need, we may miss what God says. The things God does for us may not last forever, but what God says will have a lasting impact on us and for generations to come. —USK

Worship eXperience at the Tabernacle  |
Sunday, July 29 at 10:30AM

In some ways worship defies definition, it can only be experienced.
Worship cannot be duplicated.
Worship cannot be rehearsed.
Worship cannot be orchestrated.
Worship is genuine.
Worship requires you to release.
Worship requires you to believe.
Worship requires you to expect.

Are you ready to worship with us at Memorial Tabernacle Church? You are welcome. You are invited.
