Community Movie Night – November 17, 2018

On Saturday, November 17, we will be showing a family Christmas movie — The Star: The Story of the First Christmas — in the dining area of the church. In this 2017 animated film, a small, brave donkey named Bo joins some friends in following The Star on the adventure of his dreams, and they become accidental heroes in the first Christmas.

Invite your friends and neighbors to watch with you. Arrive around 6:30 PM to get your popcorn and drinks, and the movie will start at 7:00 PM. You can come in your pajamas and bring blankets to sit on. This is a free event, but we will be accepting monetary donations to offset the costs.

Rent-A-Student begins on October 13

Beginning in October, the Tabernacle Student Ministry will be participating in Rent-A-Student, which is an opportunity for students to serve our church family and the local community.  If you have work at your house that could be handled by volunteers – including painting, landscaping, spreading mulch, cleaning and organizing closets, etc. you are invited to call the church at 919-781-4600 and make arrangements with Trevor MacPherson, Associate Pastor of Families.  Rent-A-Student activities will occur the second Saturday of each month, beginning October 13 at 7:30 AM.  When the students have participated in four volunteer activities, they will qualify for their summer Student Mission Trip.  This is also a fundraising event – donations will be appreciated and used to help offset the cost of the Student Mission Trip.

Student Lunches for High School Students on Mondays

Juniors and Seniors at Leesville Road High School who can leave campus are invited to have lunch on Mondays at the Youth House next to the church building.  Each week we provide a home-cooked meal and have served as many as 40 students at a time. Our meals are prepared by church members Beth Obenschain and Errol and Dottie Fogg.  We hope you’ll join us on Mondays for good food and a relaxed time with your friends.

Pastor to Lead Fall Bible Study on “The Sermon on the Mount”

Starting on Wednesday, September 19, at 6:30 PM, the Pastor will begin a study of Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) – “Living into the Kingdom of God.”. While some of Jesus’ best-known teaching is found in these chapters, readers can often come away inspired but confused. We find Jesus’ exacting ethical demands compelling, but we wonder who could possibly live up to all of them. We also wonder whether or not all of the teaching is intended to be followed absolutely. Are we, for example, supposed to “turn the other cheek” in every circumstance? And what about when we fail to live up to all of Jesus’ teaching? Can we still be his disciples? This study is aimed at gaining clarity about what Jesus was saying and what he was not saying to us, his disciples.
