Wisdom from Nurse Samantha
During these trying times, we must remember to stay POSITIVE, stay in PRAYER and continue to PRACTICE those agents suggested to help us stay virus FREE!

If you MUST go out, remember to practice social distancing, staying 6 feet away from the next person ⬅️ 6 ft ➡️. It has now been suggested that we wear some type of mask, protecting us from each other ... all efforts in trying to lessen the spread of COVID-19.

Volunteers (working from home) Needed ::
Shared from Alameda County Community Food Bank

In this challenging time of sheltering in place, we have received so many inquiries from community members wanting to help and make a difference. Here is just such an opportunity……
As we all cope with COVID19 and how it has upended our lives, the Census has even greater relevance: Census-data is used to determine funding for emergency services and relief efforts. Organizations like ours depend on this funding to serve our most vulnerable community members. 
How can you help? Phone Bank:  Our partners over at the Alameda County Complete Count Committee are setting volunteers up to call community members from home to spread the word about completing the Census, and answer any questions or concerns. Interested volunteers should: 
  1. Fill out this form 
  2. RSVP for this webinar training on Tuesday, April 7th at 5pm!

Thanks so much for considering volunteering to meet this need and thanks, too, for your support of the Food Bank. Stay safe. Be well .

Our Mission Statement
The Memorial Tabernacle Church has come together by the Holy Spirit for the specific purpose of preaching and teaching the word of God, (the Bible), and about Jesus Christ, God's son, and to proclaim the gospel of the Kingdom of God to the North Oakland Community and its environs; to bring healing to the brokenhearted and deliverance to the oppressed; to be a center of genuine concern for those in need, a sanctuary of community worship that is neither shallow nor restrained, a spiritual home where members find an expression of precious love for one another and a haven for the unsaved.
Choose to be a part. We pray you will choose to attend one of the reunion services to receive the  love  God has given us to give to you specifically! We are waiting on you! Let us know more about you by connecting with us on our  online form  or by stopping by 58th Street and Telegraph Avenue! See you soon! We look forward to doing awesome things together to increase the kingdom of God.
