Seasons Greetings...
Pastor Ulysses Stephen King, Jr., Mrs. Tiffany, and the Memorial Tabernacle Family welcome you to the family.     We invite you to become a member of a family of believers God is using to "reach to teach, teach to change" one person and one block at a time.

Christmastime is a season to remember all Christ has done for us and anticipate all He has promised to do for us in the future. The dates are December 1-24, 2019.
  • He came and died.
  • He saved us from our sin.
  • He is coming again!

The purpose of Advent is to rekindle our hope by remembering the prophecies and promises of God. As our mission statement reads:
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.
