TAB Blog: Yeah, God!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dear Tabernacle Family,

On this Memorial Day weekend, we stop to remember those who served our nation and gave their lives in defending our freedoms. So many of our Tabernacle family have served or have family who have served in war or in peace time. God bless America!

Today we highlight Preschool Ministries here at The Tabernacle. We are laying a foundation of faith in our youngest worshippers. Every Sunday and Tuesday, the lessons and activities are centered around developing a heart of worship and cultivating a faith in our Birth- Pre-Kindergarten population. Lessons, activities, games and music are designed to bring these youngest learners to a place of interacting with God and seeing Him as One to worship and One who is powerful enough to take care of their every detail.

Our theme each Sunday is a “God is…” statement. God is faithful. God is powerful. Last week, our statement was “Jesus is God.” Like Peter of old, one of our four year olds called out, “I didn’t know Jesus was God.” I love it when the Holy Spirit makes the connection.

Recently, a Grandmother shared that her granddaughter made the connection of our powerful God. Grandma told the four year old that Grandma wasn’t feeling well and instructed the little girl to go play. In the next instant, the child came and said, “Then I pray for you, Grandma.” Her connection to a powerful God carried from a Sunday lesson to a real-life situation.

Our praises each Sunday as we sing our songs has also carried as a two year old boy was handed his pancakes at breakfast and he loudly proclaimed, “Yeah, God!” Our Rainbows recently told their favorite praise word and responses included, “Mighty, Powerful, I love you, and Yeah, God!”

Preschool Ministries on Sunday mornings and Tuesday Rainbows are making a Kingdom impact on our youngest under two nursery kids who dance to the music behind the nursery counter and then sit in the high chairs to eat cheerios and listen to their Bible story. The impact extends to our ready to go to Kindergarten kids who are learning to worship and love God’s Word.

I am grateful for our team who minister faithfully and for the families who support the ministry by following through with their children in their lessons each week. There are opportunities to minister on the team both on Sundays and Tuesdays. Connect with me at sbaldwin@thetab.org. I would love to talk with you.

Blessings,
Pastor Sharon Baldwin

TAB Blog: Welcome to the Wild

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dear Tabernacle Family,

When you are 17 years old, there’s few things more satisfying than driving a car with a full tank of gas. There was one specific night I was enjoying this glorious occasion. As I drove off from the gas station, I lightheartedly asked the Lord, “Why can’t You keep my tank full? If my tank stay full, I will never have to worry about where I drive again.”

His response had shocked me.

Would you trust me to do it if the car were on empty?

So often I substitute safety with my salvation. When we’re taken care of and feel alright, we can become dependent on what we have already received. The issue with that is that there’s always so much more.

I believe that God pushes us into the wilderness not to run us dry but rather to depend on the one thing that never runs dry. The less we have to work with the more we have to rely on God.

I can set parameters in my life that make me feel like everything is okay but, as one who depends on God, nothing can steal who I am.

Welcome to the Wild,

TAB Blog: Happy Mother’s Day

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dear Tabernacle Family,

When I was asked this week to prepare this article I did what is my normal response to a request of this nature. I looked inside my heart at what is resonating there.

In light of the fact that today is Mother’s Day, I am not intending to address the “how-to’s” of successful mothering. I honestly say perhaps I generally did some things right but am sure I could have done better with others. Perhaps that is the scope of all us mothers. But may I interject here how much we love our daughter, Aimee, and our two granddaughters, Kayla and Chloe. They are so devoted to our church spending many days and late nights assisting in various aspects of preparations for programs.

In today’s world with the loud voices of our culture, variables of lifestyles, and unconscionable pressures on parental authority, and our children struggling making decisions just to be accepted by their peers, I oftentimes find myself reflecting on how my family survived raising 9 children. God was foundational and Jesus at the center.

Spiritual values are challenged on every hand in today’s world and forces eagerly attempt to undermine and change value systems to a neutrality that eliminates absolute spiritual truth and that which is foundational to our nation.

I would like to honor our Children’s Pastor, Jennifer Cupicha, who is leading our children so effectively into a relationship with Christ. What an outstanding job she, her family, my family and other leaders have done putting together two Saturdays, one Princess Day, celebrating the younger girls as Princesses (the desire of every little girls heart) and the other Knights Day for our young boys. They had so much fun as the young men from Eagles’ Wings dressed in Knights costumes interrelating with them with games, etc. SO EXCITING!

How grateful we can be today for the fact that we have a HOPE in God that strengthens our faith to believe for our nation and the wellbeing of our families.

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY!

Blessings,

Wanda Reid
