The Tabernacle Torch Newsletter
Posted Friday July 31st, 2020
The Tabernacle Torch is the newsletter of Tabernacle United Methodist Church. It resumed publication in March 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic prevented our congregation from attending services at the church. With no church services, there was no church bulletin which was a main source of communication at Tabernacle. The Tabernacle Torch serves to connect the congregation during the pandemic. Our church secretary publishes two versions of The Torch on a weekly basic. The digital version is electronically sent to those on our email list, the other is a printable version which is mailed to those in our congregation who do not have a computer or the technology to view the digital version. The digital version differs as it contains contains video messages from Pastor Glenn, worship music and weblinks to several other christian opportunities online as well as a link to our website Giving Page.
The Printable Version is accessed at the bottom of the home page via the Newsletter Thumbnail.
The digital version is accessed on the homepage via the scrolling ads, look for the "Latest Newsletter Here" slide. It can also be viewed on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/tabernacle.umc.9 .

JUNE BASIC BLESSING DISTRIBUTION RESULTS...
Posted Thursday June 25th, 2020
This past Saturday Erma Tabernacle Church had it's monthly "Basic Blesssings" distribution of basic necessities. 32 families received 39 bags of detergents, soaps, paper products, and personal care products. Due to Covid 19 there has been no drop in need as we enter the summer season, in fact the need has increased. Unfortunately we know that we are not reaching everyone that can benefit from the program. Do to necessary distancing restrictions we are still unable to allow our "clients" into the storeroom to pick out their own items, but have in place a phone in system where they contact Brenda at 609-827-1593 and provide her with a list of their needs.... and we then have them ready for curbside pick up on our monthly distribution days. Our Coming distribution days are July 17th, and August 14th. If you know of someone who can benefit from this program, PLEASE pass this information on to them. We are here to support the local community.
