Our Vision is to be Transformed by Christ and to see Transformation for Christ.
As Pastor Stephen mentioned in his Bread for the Journey article last week, we would like for each Tabernacle attender to fill out the following survey. Please click the button to access the survey.
We are excited to be able to resume a modified Wednesday night schedule this week. All activities will be physically distanced with COVID-19 protocols in place. For adults, there is a Round Table Prayer & Bible Study in Fellowship Hall and a young parent gathering at the Pavilion from 6-6:45 PM during the time when children's activities meet. If you are coming with children, please check-in at the desk on the 1st floor. The youth will meet in the gym from 6:30-7:30 PM. Tabernacle Choir will continue rehearsing at 6:45 PM. There will not be a Wednesday night meal for the foreseeable future, but we will continue to look at ways of expanding ministry activities in the weeks to come.
