Baptists on Mission/NC Baptist Men are already working on the ground in Texas to meet the needs of those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Their efforts include disaster recovery (clearing out flood debris), feeding the hungry (40,000 meals a day are needed in the Beaumont/Nederland area alone), offering laundry services, showers, and much more. Tabernacle’s state missions offering in September will allow us help to provide the financial support needed to address this crisis. If you’d like to give above and beyond this offering, check out www.baptistsonmission.org/hurricaneharvey. Many ways to pray, go, and/or give are detailed on the website. You may also make a contribution through checks payable to N.C. Baptist Men/Baptists On Mission, designated for Hurricane Harvey Disaster Relief. Checks can be mailed to NCBM, Baptist State Convention of North Carolina, P.O. Box 1107, Cary, NC 27512.
Now that schools following the traditional calendar are back in session, we will be resuming our lunches for the juniors and seniors who can leave campus. Meeting at the Youth House, the first lunch of the semester will be held on Monday, September 11, at 11:30 AM. The lunches will continue every Monday for the rest of the semester unless otherwise noted.
Wednesday nights at TBC offer exciting opportunities for us to anchor our week in Christian fellowship. After enjoying a delicious meal together from 5:30 to 6:30 PM, there are activities scheduled for all ages. Children participate in Children’s Choir, as well as missions groups like Mission Friends, Girls in Action, and Royal Ambassadors, while the youth gather for fellowship and Bible study. In the dining room, adults share in a time of prayer and Bible study. We hope your schedule allows you to join us on Wednesday nights.

Tabernacle’s Homecoming worship service will take place Sunday, October 8, at 11:00 AM. Following the service, everyone is invited to participate in an old fashioned covered dish lunch. Please plan to bring your favorite vegetables, sides or desserts—enough for your family and another family.
