UPCOMING DATES & UPDATES
Re-Opening Tabernacle Survey
You should have received a separate email last week with a survey each member is encouraged to complete in preparation for resuming in-person worship services on May 31. Please click the button to complete the survey if you have not already filled it out. The deadline is 8 AM this Wednesday, May 20. Specific details about attending on Sunday, May 31 will be communicated next week.
Darkness To Light
According to our policy, any volunteer who works with minors must complete a child abuse training by August 1. Darkness to Light is now offering online training free through the month of May. This would be the perfect time to take advantage of this great opportunity to receive the training! Click the "training link" button and use the code FLIPTHESWITCH when checking out and learn how to protect our children from sexual abuse. Once the training is complete, please email a copy of your certificate to crystal.gilley@tabernacle.org . For any questions, please contact dana.harman@tabernacle.org .
Envisioning Transformation
Progress continues on implementing the Envisioning Transformation project
with much of the actual construction work well underway. The structural changes depicted in the renderings you’ve seen are nearly complete, although a lot of the finishing work remains to be done. While we don’t expect to complete the project until mid Summer, you will be able to see significant progress if you are able to attend the worship service on Sunday, May 31. In addition to the work underway inside the building, you’ll also see some improvements in the parking lots. Those working on the project, including the project implementation team, our contractor, and staff, have an excellent
working relationship and we look forward to a successful conclusion.
Media Team Volunteers Needed
Due to the generosity of a recent donor, our church will soon install new equipment to begin live streaming our services each Sunday. Live streaming will allow those viewing at home to participate fully on Sunday mornings. We need a few more media team volunteers to operate the new equipment associated with the live stream. If you consider yourself someone who is good with technology, please consider serving in this way. There will be a training session to make sure any who volunteer feel comfortable on the new equipment. For any questions, contact james.kimmel@tabernacle.org .
Office Closed on Memorial Day
Our church office will be closed on Monday, May 25 in observance of Memorial Day. Next week, all normal communication will occur on Tuesday instead of Monday.
Deacon Nominations Due May 31
Submit your suggestions for deacons to the Deacon Selection Committee by Sunday, May 31. Suggestions can be submitted to  linda.bohannon@tabernacle.org  or to any of the committee members. Deacon Selection Committee members are Lee Layton (Chairperson), Teddy Cantrell, Marc Cole, Debbie Collins, Mike Dunn, Daniel Jackson, and Laura Smith.

Tabernacle PPP Loan
Tabernacle Baptist Church applied for and received a PPP loan from the federal government as part of the COVID-19 paycheck protection program. These funds will help our church cover payroll expenses through this uncertain time, but we are praying that you continue to give so that we remain financially healthy. The entire balance of the loan is reflected in our financial plan numbers now, but those funds are earmarked exclusively for church payroll expenses.
