Special Prayer & Fasting Focus ~ October 2020

God would grant us grace to exercise our spiritual gifts to edify the church and exhort others to good works. 

Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit.  And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord.

Tree of Life

Click here to purchase Leaf, Stone or Tree

In commemoration of Tabernacle’s Centennial Celebration, a permanent wall is purposed to feature the Tabernacle “Tree of Life” that includes 300 miniature brass leaves; Solid Walnut Mini Tree comes with a brass plate with a gold finish; and/or Bronze Cast Stone casted in bronze with a genuine brass plate that will be placed below or beside the tree to recognize or express one’s sentiment. The stone may also be used to acknowledge a special gift. Up to six lines of imprinting is possible on this stone, however all imprinting is an additional charge.

The tree, stones and mini trees will be permanently placed in the area across from the Fellowship Hall leading up the stairwell to the second level. The ornate tree, stone and/or mini tree will feature personalized messages from donors.  Each message will be granted 20-23 characters/spaces per line with up to 3 lines of text.   Families of TAB or other donors may honor or memorialize their loved ones who have contributed to Tabernacle history during this century or will contribute into the next century by purchasing a leaf. Please check the TAB website:  Centennial Central for more detail regarding how one may purchase a leaf.

Did You Know?……….

The 6125 Beechwood Church has two cornerstones.  The first one was put up in 1927 on the left side during the completion of the Tabernacle Church structure when Rev. Pittman was pastor.  The second cornerstone was erected in 1949 as part of the Tabernacle Neighborhood House under the pastorate of Dr. Jesse Jai McNeil. It sits on the right at the corner of Beechwood and Milford.

Did You Know?……….

Tabernacle, like many other churches, suffered through the turbulent times of the depression.  In the spring of 1930, businesses failed and there was widespread unemployment.  People had nothing to give to the church.  In December 1936, the Detroit Baptist Union withdrew its lien on the church property, leaving the church free to negotiate directly with the First National Bank, which held the church’s mortgage.  Though its financial perspective was bleak, the church still managed to purchase a Paige Organ and a piano. God blessed and was with Tabernacle sustaining her through this difficult period.
