Our mission is to know, show, and share Jesus!
Christmas at Tabernacle!
All events are open to the public, so invite someone you know to join us as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. Below is a description of each event.

Silent Lord’s Supper (Sunday, December 23 at 5:00 pm) is a meditative time to observe The Lord’s Supper without spoken words or singing. This shorter service will be accompanied by instrumental music and will focus our hearts around specific scripture passages and prayers.

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service (Monday, December 24 at 5:00 pm) is an exciting time as we share in the joy of Christ’s coming to earth. This family service will feature carol singing, the reading of the Christmas story for kids, and a mass candle lighting at the end of the service. No childcare provided.
Lottie Moon Christmas Offering
The International Mission Board supports missionaries throughout the world. The Lottie Moon Christmas Offering enables missionaries to t ake the gospel to unreached peoples around the world. Every dollar you give makes a difference, because 100% of the money collected goes to the work of reaching every nation. Our church's goal is $50,000.
