Reaching Out to Our Community
The Baptist Tabernacle Church is seeking to make a lasting impact on this world for the good of the community and the glory of God. Because that is our desire, we have numerous outreach ministries focused on serving the poor, ministering to the elderly, giving to the needy, and living the gospel outside our church walls. Take a moment to click through the variety of ministries, and if you are interested in getting involved, let us know by completing the form at the bottom of this page.
We reguarly take short term mission trips. These have included trips to Cambodia, Native American Indian Reservations in New Mexico, The Dominican Republic, and to Mexico.
Our youth group collects non-perishable food and redistributes that to any in need. This ministry was begun in 2014, and has been utilized multiple times throughout this year.
Each month we hold a worship service in the Middletown jail. The service consists of preaching, singing, and a time of prayer. Decisions for Christ are made nearly every service.
Each month we hold services and then visit with the residents of these senior citizen assisted-living facilities. We also host a Christmas party for the Harding House each year.
Through our Youth Ministry, we do several Random Acts of Kindness (RAKs) throughout the year. These include volunteering at a wide array of wonderful organizations, as well as doing home renovations and yard work for those in need.
We collect clothes, furniture and a wide variety of other needed items throughout the year, and distribute them to people in need in Appalachian communities through the More Than Enough Ministry.
Each summer and fall we host a VBS and Trunk or Treat outreach to the kids and families of our community. Both events are free, and kids of any age are more than welcome!
Throughout the summer months, we host free carnivals in neighborhoods all around the area, where people can enjoy refreshments, games, music, a puppet show, a bounce house and a gospel magic show.
Each year we participate in the Community Pregnanacy Center’s Walk for Life. We also support the CPC financially and accept donations of clothing and other items to give to the organization.
Through our Mens Ministry, we provide oil changes and small engine repairs for widows and the elderly.
Each year prior to Christmas, we collect items for needy children throughout the world, packing the gifts and sending them out in shoeboxes through Franklin Graham’s Operation Christmas Child.
Weekly teams of two and three go out each Tuesday Night, visiting widows & shut-ins, making hospital calls, and following up with recent guests.
Once a month, the Tabernacle Teens systematically knock on doors in area neighborhoods, inviting people to our church and sharing the gospel with them.
Night of Caring is a unique opportunity for church members to get involved in outreach and evangelism. Held once each quarter, Night of Caring offers a variety of ministries that you can get involved in. Whether praying for members of our church, writing letters to shut-ins, or going out to visit members and guests, this ministry is essential to the health and growth of our church.
