The Worship Ministry at Tabernacle exists to develop authentic followers of Jesus and to raise His name alone in worship and praise!
“Singing in the choir is a true worship experience for me. Don encourages us each week to connect with the biblical truths in each song and bring our hearts to each worship service!
I truly do connect with the songs we learn and I am constantly uplifted by their messages. It is a joy for me to praise our Lord through song!” – Laura Murphy

Adult Discipleship Groups (6:00-7:15pm):
Another Gospel? A Lifelong Christian Seeks Truth in Response to Progressive Christianity by Alisa Childers
Leader: Misty Jones
A movement seeks to redefine Christianity. Some think that it is a much-needed progressive reformation. Others believe that it is an attack on historic Christianity.
Alisa Childers never thought she would question her Christian faith. She was raised in a Christian home, where she had seen her mom and dad feed the hungry, clothe the homeless, and love the outcast. She had witnessed God at work and then had dedicated her own life to leading worship, as part of the popular Christian band ZOEgirl. All that was deeply challenged when she met a progressive pastor, who called himself a hopeful agnostic.
Another Gospel? describes the intellectual journey Alisa took over several years as she wrestled with a series of questions that struck at the core of the Christian faith. After everything she had ever believed about God, Jesus, and the Bible had been picked apart, she found herself at the brink of despair . . . until God rescued her, helping her to rebuild her faith, one solid brick at a time.
In a culture of endless questions, you need solid answers. If you or someone you love has encountered the ideas of progressive Christianity and aren’t sure how to respond, Alisa’s journey will show you how to determine—and rest in—what’s unmistakably true.
Let’s Study Hebrews by Hywel R. Jones
Let’s Study Hebrews is the fifth volume in the New Testament series.
Different authors are participating in the production of this series to bring together some of the best hearts and minds available to help understand what the Bible means by what it says. The series’ aim is exposition of Scripture, written in the language of a friend, seated alongside you with an open Bible.
Hebrews is a book full of rich encouragement for all Christians, but many have found it difficult to understand. Let’s Study Hebrews opens up its message in a clear and compelling way.

Designed to be used alongside The Pilgrim’s Progress: A Readable Modern-Day Version of John Bunyan’s Pilgrim’s Progress, each chapter, sub section, and study question examines Bunyan’s allegorical narrative to tell his powerful presentation of what it means to follow the narrow way of Christian salvation.
