MTC Community Connection

Effective programming, which we prefer to call "ministries" at Memorial Tabernacle Church (MTC), is based on the Holy Spirit's direction and planning. Into that process come the best God-given abilities we have (i.e., Spirit-inspired ideas, suggestions from various sources; an awareness of the needs of our Church and community, prayer and guidance of the Holy Spirit).

The following is a description of some of the ministry services or helps currently provided by our Church. They are presented in an effort to acquaint you with the wide variety of opportunities for creative involvement in the life of our church. They will give you some idea of some of the programs, which your support provides. If we are not meeting your particular need, please let us know. As our church continues to grow, we will be more than happy to consider any suggestions or ideas you feel would help you to become involved in the ministry of the church.

Christian Education

The Christian Education ministry at Memorial Tabernacle Church is a teaching ministry. It is determined directly by the teaching ministry of Jesus Christ and His Great Commission to his disciples (see Matthew 28:19-20). We provide weekly Christ-centered Bible teaching, designed to assist and encourage believers and seekers to participate in their quest for understanding the Christian faith.

Sunday School: Studying the Bible is very important to your Christian growth. Each Sunday, beginning at 9:15 a.m., Christian education classes are provided for the exploration of Christian faith and practice. We strongly encourage you to participate. Qualified teachers give instruction and guidance in the Word of God for your personal spiritual development and growth.

The Pastor teaches on a wide array of subjects, topics, and themes from the Word of God that are relevant and timely for practical everyday Christian living. Our Bible Class is held Tuesdays at 7:00 p.m. via Zoom. Register:

Prayer Ministry

Gather within your respective homes each week, Sunday evenings from 6:30 until 7:30 p.m. Join us as we make our requests known and petitions heard in the throne room of God. We look forward miracles, signs, and wonders being performed, as we together fight together in prayer against the enemy.

At Memorial Tabernacle Church every believer is an evangelist. Our task, our mandate, our great commission is: "Go. . .and make disciples" (Matthew 28:19). We are not concerned merely about statistics, or charts, or budgets or even church membership, if in the last analysis we have failed to make disciples. Christian disciples are those in whom the creative, redemptive work of God is going on because they have opened their lives to Christ's forgiving, cleansing grace and to God's transforming power through the Holy Spirit. This process of being filled with all the fullness of God we call "spiritual formation". They are God's new creation. The gospel is not just what Christ has done; it is also what He is still doing through His disciples, for His world.

Men's Fellowship

Safety Greeters

Ministry Leaders: Deaconess Valerie Savage

The purpose of the Safety Greeters is to ensure all attendees are welcomed and screened to enter the sanctuary. Safety always! The Safety Greeters also serve the Lord and the Body in ministry by directing the flow of people both in and out of our worship services and to be sensitive to their spiritual influence as the "face" of the Body, in giving that initial greeting and contact for newcomers who enter our services in their first encounter with the Church. Read and understand the requirements for in-person worship with COVID-19 Safety Protocol enforced

Music Ministry

It is without saying, the value and importance of music in the church is unquestioned. For centuries music has been used of God in the church to accomplish His purposes. Music is God-ordained. It is the universal language of the human soul. It is the natural speech of the Christ-filled heart and is the medium through which the soul reaches out to God. At Memorial Tabernacle Church, the purpose of the Music Ministry is to express praise, prayer, and gratitude to God, to promote the spirit of devotion and worship, to teach and preserve divine truth, and to unify and point the unsaved to God. This is expressed through the playing of musical instruments, singing hymns and praise songs, witness songs, the choir, guest musicians and soloists. Rehearsals are held 2nd Sundays following Morning Worship.

Theme: "Tilling the Ground for a New Harvest: HOPE"
Text: 1 Peter 3:14-17; Hosea 10:12

First, we should realize that, as believers, we may be asked to explain not only what we believe, but why we believe it. We start by sanctifying Christ as Lord in our hearts. This means that He will rule us completely as Master and His will should be our desire. If Christ is Lord and Master, then we should have no trouble not only believing His word, but obeying it to the best of our ability. Peter says we should be ready to explain the hope that is in us.
