Friday Morning Bible Study
In this faith-building study, you’ll discover how Elijah’s obedience to God kept him anchored, sharpened his faith, broadened his impact, and invited heaven’s fire to fall. God is also working in your life today to fashion a fiery, bold faith that will empower you to share the hope of Christ with your family, friends, co-workers, and community. This group meets each Friday at 9:30 AM in the Heritage Room starting September 10.
Called Church Conference/Ministry Plan Q&A
The Projected Contributions and Ministry Expenditure Plan for Fiscal Year 2021-2022 is being presented to the church for consideration by the Finance Committee and with the approval and recommendation of the Deacon Administration Council and deacon body.

A called Church Conference is scheduled for Sunday, September 12, at 4 PM in the Chapel. Members of the Finance Committee will be available to answer questions and to clarify any information.

Has your life been impacted by cancer, whether your own or someone else's? We are a faith-based, cancer support group. Our goal is to provide spiritual and emotional support to those diagnosed, currently undergoing treatment, caregivers, and those in remission. Join us on September 21 on Zoom at Noon for prayer, learning and support. Christ, not cancer, is your life!

Pardon our Progress! Envisioning Transformation Update
The drainage project occurring adjacent to Parking Lot D is a continuation of work that began earlier this Spring near the North Entrance. This and future projects will prevent future water damage to our building. Renovations to the third floor youth and children’s area are underway! Both sets of restrooms on the third floor will be refreshed prior to flooring installation and painting in rooms and hallways. Please bear with us as certain fixtures may be out of order at times over the weeks ahead. Thank you for your ongoing support of these and other projects as we transform our facility!
Be in prayer for...
  • The unity of Tabernacle so that we may demonstrate healthy interpersonal relationships and positive communication to our hurting world.
  • A deeper intentionality in every ministry at Tabernacle so we can provide the best gospel opportunities for people to respond.
  • Grace to abound in every relationship at Tabernacle so that the peace of Christ may influence our community to experience true transformation.
