"129 Years and Reaching Forward"

 As we celebrate 129 years of ministry and express profound gratitude to God, our eyes continue to catch a glimpse of where God is leading.  Tabernacle continues to be at a pivotal crossroad where we are seeing the impact of our ministry in metropolitan Birmingham and beyond. Simultaneously, we must embrace and be prepared for the next phase of ongoing ministry and service.

 The tentacles of a ministry are represented in its members and all their involvements.  We have had a long and distinguished history of having members involved in most areas of life in our city.  Our members have represented their faith well and made significant contributions to our ministry and our city.

 In celebrating 129 years, we must be poised for what God desires to do in and through us.  I am convinced that God is still building!  God is building and maturing our faith.  Each experience testifies to our sustaining faith.  Yet, each experience should be viewed from the perspective of making us stronger.
