Thanksgiving Service – November 21, 2017

You’re invited to join us on Tuesday, November 21 at 5:30 PM for a fellowship meal in the dining room. At 6:30 PM, we’ll begin a special Thanksgiving Prayer Service. This service offers us a time to gather together and give thanks to God for all our many blessings. There will be no Wednesday night activities or supper on November 22.

Community-wide – Sounds of the Season

Mark your calendars, the 2017 Advent Season is nearly upon us, and Tabernacle Baptist Church is going to be filled with exciting moments and special seasonal events. Everyone is welcome!

Sunday, December 3 at 5:30 PM, the TBC Children’s Choir will present Jingle Bell Beach. This will be a delightful Christmas musical that will highlight the talents of our children, while giving them the opportunity to present you with the story of Christmas. Immediately following the performance, the leadership of TBC will be serving a “pancake dinner” with all the fixins so make sure you come hungry.

Sunday, December 17 at 7:00 PM is the second event you need to plan on attending. That night the Chapel Choir will present the cantata “All is Calm, All is Bright”. This cantata contains exhilarating music and powerful solos, accompanied by a 15-piece orchestra. This cantata is sure to be a highlight of the Christmas Season for you and your family that you will not want to miss. Following the cantata, the Special Events Committee will be hosting a wonderful reception of food and punch. Plan to come early to make sure you have a seat.

Ways to Support Hurricane Disaster Relief Efforts

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.

Youth Lunches to Resume

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, lunches will continue every Monday for the rest of the semester unless otherwise noted.

Wednesday Night Fellowship

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.
