Youth Mission Trip Planned

The Student Ministry will be heading to Charleston, SC for their 2018 summer mission trip, July 9-13. Service projects will range from landscaping to working with children’s ministries. Students who are interested in participating should contact the church office by Sunday, June 3, or sign up in the Youth House. Friends from school are also invited to join us!

Our New Choir Robes Are Fully Funded!

We are thrilled to announce that we have met our financial goal for purchasing the new choir robes! As of May 20, you have contributed $8,658 – that’s $533.50 more than our target! Thank you so much for your generosity and for your support of our Chapel Choir and Music Ministry. We plan to use the excess funds to get our current robes cleaned and ready to donate to some other choir that can use them. We are closing the robe fund as of this announcement and will place any additional donations in the Music Ministry designated account. Thank you again!

Wednesday Night Programming Concludes for Summer

Our Wednesday summer break begins this week following our final cookout on May 23. . We express appreciation to everyone who helped make Wednesday nights so special. From cooking and serving to leading our children’s mission activities, we thank you for your service. Our full programming will resume in September. In the meantime, the Chapel Choir will continue to hold rehearsals through June in preparation for their Patriotic Musical on July 1 at 7:00 PM.

Family Night Cookout – May 23 at 5:30 PM

We’ve had a wonderful season of fellowship on Wednesday nights. Our last full night of activities will be Wednesday, May 16.  Then on the following Wednesday, May 23,  we will gather at 5:30 PM for a Family Night Cookout to celebrate what God has been doing through our regular mid-week activities.  Please join us for this great evening of food, fun, and fellowship.

Youth Lunches to Resume in the Fall

If you’re a junior or senior student at Leesville Road High School, you’re invited to attend a lunch gathering during the school year at the Tabernacle Baptist Church Youth House – across the street from the high school parking lot.  Each Monday we host a lunch for youth and have served as many as 40 students.  We have concluded the lunches for the 2017-2018 school year and hope you’ll join us when classes begin again in the fall.

Operation Inasmuch a Success!

We are thrilled to report that at least 43 members of Tabernacle stepped up to participate in this year’s Operation Inasmuch on Saturday, April 28. By undertaking 7 different projects in our community we were able to touch at least 70 individual lives directly, plus well over 100 lives indirectly. Such service in our community conveys our desire to be the presence of Christ outside the walls of our church building. We express appreciation for everyone who volunteered their time to serve, and we are especially grateful to our Missions Committee for their faithful efforts to plan and coordinate this impactful mission.
