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

 

Tab Blog: A People Devoted

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

“They committed themselves to the teaching of the apostles, the life together, the common meal, and the prayers.”

Acts 2:42 The Message

I love how Eugene Peterson translated this verse as it embodies my heart’s desire for the Tabernacle, for Orchard Park, for Buffalo, for New York, and for our nation. I pray, day and night, that we would be a people devoted to the teachings of our Father God. When we live life with one another, breaking bread and praying with each other, we learn how to better love our brother and sister. We all come from different places, cultures and backgrounds. Jesus’ own disciples were very different from one another. From humble fishermen to an affluent tax collector, they came together, lived life together, broke bread together, prayed together, and loved one another. God has created each and everyone of us in His Image, Imago Dei. Let us find out what giftings and callings we each have been given and celebrate them together.

Today is our All-Church Picnic and it is a great day to put this verse into action. We have an opportunity to celebrate with each other over a delicious meal. We have an opportunity to commit our lives to one another. I encourage you to find yourself in this passage of scripture and become a part of the living and active component of the Word of God. As we gather together today after service, find someone and begin to live life together. As Bishop Robert has taught us, let us be slow to speak and eager to listen.
As we join together in celebration of our church and our community let us ponder the words of Coretta Scott King, “The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.”

With love and devotion,
Joshua Ogle

Tab Blog: Generals of the Faith

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Hello Tab Family!

This year I felt the Lord prompt us to dig into revival history and the Generals of the Faith of the last 200 years that God has used to build the church of our generation!  Our Sunday nights have been filled with not only education but the depths of understanding of the Prophetic History that has gone before us & what we are picking up by the Spirit today … we are about to see the greatest Awakening the world has ever known!  Let’s get that in our spirit today!!!

One of these generals we studied was TL & Daisy Osborn, and their successor & daughter, LaDonna Osborn.  This family was very special to the mine, as my Dad walked alongside the Osborne’s and I was ordained under LaDonna’s prayer and impartation.

Dr. Osborn was the first missionary evangelist to go to open fields or parks, in non-Christian nations, to proclaim Christ and to pray for miracles as proof that He is alive. Today it has become standard procedure. The Osborn DocuMiracle films and videos in 70 languages have been shown in thousands of villages and towns in one hundred and fifteen nations, influencing millions to believe the Gospel. The Osborn National Missionary Assistance Program has sponsored over 30,000 national men and women as full time Missionaries to un-evangelized tribes and villages — Over 30,000 missionaries — and over 150,000 churches have been established through this unparalleled ministry.

Their mission, simple — Proclaim Christ and Pray for miracles as proof that He is alive! The fervency of the Osborn’s conviction compelled them, and the miracles followed!  This picture shows the devices left behind at a crusade after thousands left healed! The Osborn’s mantle as forerunners of the worldwide crusade movement has the scripture engrained upon it, “All things are possible if thou canst only believe, Mark 9:23.”

Why not today??? Why not here??!!!  Why not now??!!

Today we stand upon this prophetic history!  In fact, we stand on 6,000 years of supernatural prophetic history!  God is releasing this and other supernatural mantles upon our generation.  May we arise and step into this dimension of faith and wear well the Osborne mantle of “All things are possible!”  Today, no matter what you are facing, or what we corporately are facing as the body of Christ, we CAN believe and see that nothing is impossible! God is still the God of profound miracles!

With great expectancy,

Pastor Aimee
