If you’re a junior or senior student at Leesville Road High School, you’re invited to attend a lunch gathering at the Tabernacle Baptist Church Youth House – across the street from the high school parking lot. Each week on Mondays we host a lunch for youth and typically serve about 20 or more students. We’d be glad to you to join us for some good food, time with friends, and a break from your school day.
The Missions Committee will sponsor a Missions Celebration on Sunday, March 4.
Beginning at 9:30, a number of displays featuring ministry partners will be in the Gathering Area. Ministry Partners will include: Mission Friends, GA’s and RA’s, WMU; Youth Ministry, AARP Tax Assist, American Red Cross Blood Donation and Disaster Response, CBF Ministry to Internationals, Habitat for Humanity, Baptists on Mission Good Shepherd Children’s Home in Guatemala and Disaster Response, State Convention Medical and Migrant Ministry, North Raleigh Ministries, and Operation-In-As-Much. Driveway displays will include the State Convention mobile dental clinic, a Red Cross emergency response vehicle, and a Baptists on Mission mobile feeding unit.
In lieu of regular Bible study, Marc Wyatt, CBF Advocate for Internationals, will present a program in the dining hall from 10:00 to 10:30 for Youth and Adults on the Biblical imperative for serving refugees and immigrants in our community.
The displays and vehicles will also be available for viewing after worship.
Starting February 5 through April 11, from 9 am to 3 pm, the AARP Foundation will offer free tax help with special attention to those aged 60 and over. No appointments are taken – first come, first served. Go to www.aarp.org/money/taxes/aarp_taxaide/ for tax items you need to bring with you.
“Jacob: Chasing Greatness, Conquered by Grace”
Jacob’s life was a chaotic roller coaster. He experienced some of God’s most rapturous revelations recorded in Scripture. He also dealt with some of the most distressing difficulties faced by any biblical character. Through it all, Jacob demonstrated the full range of human qualities and flaws. He could be selfish and manipulative, as well as generous and compassionate. We hope you can join us for this fascinating study based in Genesis chapters 25 to 50. Each session is lead by our Pastor and held on Wednesdays in the dining room beginning at 6:30 PM.
Wednesday night activities begin again on January 10, 2018.
Wednesday nights at TBC offer exciting opportunities for us to anchor our week in Christian fellowship. After enjoying a delicious meal 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: Mission Friends, Girls in Action, and Royal Ambassadors, while the youth gather for fellowship and Bible study. Adults meet for prayer and Bible study.

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.
