Pastor’s Corner – October 2007

My dearly beloved “PARTNERS”in The Lords Work:

     It is my happy pleasure to greet you at the outset of this most special month, the 63rd Anniversary of the organization of the TABERNACLE OF FAITH BAPTIST CHURCH by the late Pastor, F. D. Ferrell and 38 Charter Members. Our most timely theme for the month is, “A LEGACY OF 63 YEARS: ASSESSING THE PAST, EMPOWERED FOR THE FUTURE.” The theme underscores  the hand of God in our past, the present, right now, and in our future. we have come this far by faith, and faith in God through Christ beckons to move both onward and upward in the Work of our God. The future is most bright for us as a household of Faith if we but follow God’s lead.

     The past month was a good and fruitful one, with souls added to the church and with rich and spirit filled service. We closed the month on a high spiritual note with “Our Annual family/Homecoming Service”. What a great time of praise and celebration we had which was highlighted by the powerful message from Dr. Robert mason, pastor of the Macedonia Baptist Church in Watts. We concluded the month with our “Annual Mission Service” this past Sunday.

     The month of October is now before us, and we so solicit your usual prayers and support throughout the month. Two of our most faithful and dedicated members, Deacon Al and Sister Birdia Mims Serve as Co-Chairpersons for our 63rd Church Anniversary. Aside from our regular Services, the month will be highlighted by the following:
