Update on LifeGroups and Wednesday Nights
(Tabernacle Baptist Church, August 06, 2020)
Dear Church Family,
Despite the unpredictability associated with the COVID crisis, we have had some wonderful opportunities to minister in our community. This summer, we ministered to nearly 250 children through our Backyard VBS program.
If you are like me, you have greatly missed the connection with church family that is normally experienced through our regular slate of activities on our church campus. It is for that reason, that I am excited to announce that it is our plan to start offering options for Adult LifeGroups, Discipleship, and Ministry activities beginning September 9 and 13!
Our plan for now, due to sanitizing procedures and social distancing protocols, is to offer various times for Adult LifeGroups to meet on campus, or off campus, at their discretion, beginning September 13. Possible on-campus meeting times include:
Sunday mornings (recommended for Senior Adult LifeGroups)
During these times, we plan to make the facilities available for LifeGroups to meet, based on requests. We want to provide childcare on Sunday evenings at 5pm to allow LifeGroups containing parents with children to meet.
On top of providing activities for LifeGroups to meet, we also plan to restart a Wednesday night gathering on September 9. We plan to make a boxed meal available from 4:45 pm to 6:00 pm. Starting at 6:00 pm, there will be activities for preschoolers, children, and students, as well as some discipleship classes and other adult ministry opportunities. The Young Adult Worship Ensemble (6:00 pm), Orchestra (6:00 pm), and Worship Choir (7:15 pm) will host rehearsals as well.
Since there will be activities for preschoolers, children, and students on Wednesday night, Wednesday evenings are another good time slot for LifeGroups containing parents with children to meet.
Adult LifeGroup leaders will be receiving a survey to request a time and place to meet. We appreciate your flexibility as we try to accommodate the needs of our church family. Once surveys have been submitted, we will try to lock in requested times for various LifeGroups.
On top of the items listed above, we hope to host other on-campus ministry events in the fall. As it is possible, we will plan such events and announce them accordingly.
Please contact our Church Office if you have any questions, or if you need clarity on our plans.
Know that you are loved and appreciated. Thank you for the part you play in building Christ’s kingdom through Tabernacle Baptist Church.
