Tree of Life

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.


A Moment in Time…Did You Know?

January 2020

By 1946, Tabernacle had reached financial stability, and enjoyed a membership of approximately eight hundred (800) members. It owned its parsonage, was debt-free, and had $10,000 in a trust fund for an educational building. The educational building had been the dream of Rev. Pittman. Plans were drawn and all the necessary arrangements were made to start the foundation in the fall of 1946. Due to his untimely death, he never saw his dream realized.

Rev. Pittman was a gifted man. Not only did he serve as Pastor, but also as a teacher, counselor, administrator and musician. He directed the Tabernacle choir until 1935, when Charles Speights offered his musical gifts to the church. He was appointed Minister of Music, serving for nearly Twenty (20) years.
