TAB Blog: God is on the Move!

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dear Tabernacle Family,

Happy Harvest Tabernacle Family!!

It is with great pleasure that I reach out to you at the start of this 2019 autumn season. Harvest time has come! It is time to reap things that have been sown. It is a season of fruit, much fruit; a season of fruit that remains! It is time to exact our efforts to fill our barns and experience the fruit of our labor.

Our God is clearly on the move! Our nation and the nations of this world are in the midst of a divine shaking. Every sphere of influence is in a struggle for control. This shaking is exposing the deception, and the tug of war that has held its grip on the morality of the globe. We as believers stand fixed and confident that this earth belongs to our God. The fullness of this earth is His! Our God reigns over America! The Lord God Almighty has not forsaken His people or planet earth! He is stilling speaking! His people will hear, obey and prosper! Hallelujah!

The body of Christ has begun to taste what it is to come together in the unity of our faith. By the grace of God we will be a Kingdom people with divinely knitted hearts joined together in Kingdom purpose and we will be the united force in the earth that will transform culture!! The people who walk in darkness will see great light!

Here at the Tabernacle we have recently seen change in the appearance of our leadership team but the vision and the purpose remains the same. Our five-fold apostolic team is moving forward into the plans and purposes of God.

With that our Home Life Groups with a five-fold purpose are gathering together in unity to purposefully dive into the book study, The Return to Authentic Christianity, by our very own Bishop Robert Stearns. Bishop Robert co-authored the book with Chuck D. Pierce and Larry Kreider. The study is an in-depth look at 12 vital issues facing today’s Church.

Topics include: Emergence of the gray church * Hunger for the basics * Harassment of the Church * Anti-Semitism * Redesigning the Church * Changing complexion of church leadership

“Return to Authentic Christianity is a thorough examination of some of the most critical issues affecting the modern Church.”

WE NEED YOU!! Signups are underway!!

With much love,

Sherry Jankowski

TAB Blog: Seasons Change

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Dear Tabernacle Family,

As we continue to say goodbye to the summer and 2019 moves on, time is not something that we can slow down or hit the pause button for.

Seasons continue to come and go, life continues to change. Although we can’t control the speed at which life passes by, what we can control is the shifting that is taking place.

Ask yourself, what is shifting and who am I aligning myself with? What are those dreams that I need to pick back up? What are those idols that I want to lose completely from my soul? Who has God called me to be, and where am I going with it all?

I used to hate change, but as I’ve grown, I’ve begun to see the beauty in the discomfort we experience through change. The beauty that we experience in the midst of dwelling in raw places. As we challenge ourselves to walk into the deep waters; as we face the shifting that may seem to only result in discomfort; may we be a people who learn to seek challenges, who seek the new Godly assignments, so that we may continue to shift into the warriors that the Father has called us to be.

Father, help us to shift and align ourselves as time moves by. As the seasons change, may our collective hearts desire be to embrace the new and unfamiliar paths.

In His Name,

Andrew Thiel

Tab Blog: We Must Be Determined

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We must be determined to run the race that is ahead of us. 2 We must keep our eyes on Jesus, who leads us and makes our faith complete. excerpts from Hebrews 12:1-2 (CEV) Today is our Community Commitment day and I would like to take you back to one of my favorite scenes from the Bible. Peter and the disciples in Matthew 14:22-23 were in a boat during a storm when Jesus came walking across the water toward them. At first, they were frightened until they recognized Jesus. Peter was excited and asked Jesus to allow him to walk on the water. All was good until Peter took his eyes off Jesus and began to sink. Jesus then had to play lifeguard, rescue Peter and haul him into the boat. We have often heard WHAT IF? What if Peter kept his eyes on Jesus. The other disciples would have probably exited the boat and all been dancing on the Sea of Galilee. What a cool picture. What happens when faith fails. What happens when our humanity comes through. The revelation of God’s deity is revealed. As Peter and Jesus climbed into the boat, the disciples began to worship Jesus and say, “You really are the Son of God.” In our weakness, He is made strong. In learning from Peter, we find forgiveness, humility and the spotlight turning in the right direction to Jesus. We learn that our faith is made complete only inChrist and not from us because we would be too proud.

 
Now replay this story and the biblical truths… What if this lesson were taught in our Nursery ministries, our Preschool Ministries, our IGNITE elementary kids, our ARK Youth, ACTIVATE Young Adults, the numerous Bible Studies and Sanctuary Ministries? What if our challenge were to focus on Jesus from our YOUNGEST WORSHIPPERS to our JUBILEE SENIORS? With a resounding YES, it does. Faith is taught from the high chair to the pew, the couch to the classroom, the church to the home. Our community of faith is spanning the generations and no one is to be left out. Today we are challenged with our commitment to be involved to make faith at the forefront of our families and our church. Our commitment to give not only of our tithe but our time and talent is on the spotlight. How will you use your talent, time and resources to enable the spotlight of this house to focus on Jesus? It takes a team. Find your place and start shining the light.

 
Yours for the Kingdom,
Pastor Sharon Baldwin

Tab Blog: Tuesday Family Nights

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s that time of year again. It’s Fall! It always seems like summers go by faster and faster. Often times, fall brings in structure and schedule and calendars.

We are excited to share some new family initiatives we have here at The Tabernacle.

Tuesday Family Nights: Under Pastor Jenn’s leadership we are launching some new Tuesday plans for Family Night. These NEW Tuesday nights are going to be a place where we can get practical, learn, grow, have fun, belong, reach out, build community, and go deeper. Through fun and interactive class structures, we are going to help create biblical foundations, transform lives, and build the Tabernacle tribe. From 6:30-7:30 pm come to Family nights and join in on all the activities. Where we will be doing practical learning, fun activities, and building community taught by our amazing instructors.

 

Then, at 7:30 pm all age groups will dismiss to their own ministry. From 7:30-8:30 we are running ministry time with Nursery & Preschool, Ignite Kids, The ArK Youth, 3D Woman, and Men of Valor.
Will you join us in this new launch? Come on out and be apart of Family Nights. Also, will you pray for more and more young families to find their place here at the Tab as we serve families in our region? We are really excited about the growth of young families and the next generation at the Tabernacle. This school year is going to be the best one yet!

Tab Blog: Good Morning and Welcome Back

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Good Morning and Welcome Back!!  As the summer of 2019 fades into the sunset we look forward with much anticipation to the freshness of fall!

Most of you know that I was out for several weeks this year because of some health issues.  However, as I come before you today having been restored to health and wholeness, it is not because I am a woman of Great Faith, I am a woman of little faith in a Great God! The God of Miracles and the God of new beginnings!

Let me tell you some things I believe. I believe Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, today, and forever.

I believe Jesus came with a purpose, to redeem us and return to us the dominion we were given in the garden.  God said we were to rule!

I believe Jesus came with a plan to re-establish The Kingdom of God in our lives through signs wonders and miracles.

I believe Jesus came to share His authority, power and anointing.  Mark 16:17 And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18 they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.

I believe the same Jesus that walked on water calls to us with the same invitation He gave Peter to get out of the boat.

So, my welcome back message to you today is, it’s your season to get out of the boat and walk on the water of the purposes of God for your life. You may ask how do I do that? One answer is by getting involved in your church and all it has to offer you.  You will to grow in areas you never dreamed possible. You don’t need great faith (a mustard seed will do) because you have a Great God!

En’ Agape (In Love),

Pastor Jo Ann Angelo
