Jesus Is the Reason For This Season!

Hello and Happy Holidays to everyone reading this right now.

Here at the Tabernacle of Faith, we want to remind everyone that Jesus is the Reason for this Season! Please join us this Saturday for our Watts World Revival’s Annual Toy Give Away, Preceded by our very own Youth Church’s Christmas Play! Our annual give away begins early and all who are inside for the Christmas play will be in line first for the give away. Be early as this is always a packed house!

We also want to invite you to worship with us this Sunday for our Pre-Christmas Service, and also to join us on Christmas Day for a special Christmas day Service starting at 9:00 a.m.

This Sunday, all Services are at their regularly scheduled time. Each year around this time, we adorn our altar with flowers in loving memory and in honor of our loved ones. If you bought poinsettias they will be ready for pick up, immediately following morning worship service.  Just in case you’re unable to make it to church to worship with us This Sunday, below you can still read The Tab for 3rd Sunday, December 18th, 2016.

The New year is quickly approaching and we are hoping to see you in 2017!

We are looking for people to join our Media Ministry and help promote what all we have happening through our church. We have several places where you can volunteer, from writing for MyTabNow (this page you’re on right now), to recording weekly services in our Soundroom, to Video Recording Services and uploading those videos to our YouTube channel.

Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church has been serving this community for over 72 years. In October of 2016 we celebrated 72 years of ongoing ministry here in Watts & Los Angeles area. If you are looking for a church home and want to serve this community alongside others, we look forward to welcoming you. Please check our website for regularly scheduled services.

If you’ve been away for any reason, please drop us a note to let us know how you are doing. Let us know what is happening with you and your family.

We want to wish everyone well during these holidays, and remember Jesus is the Reason for the season!

Hoping You All Had a Happy Resurrection Sunday

Hope you all had a Happy Resurrection Sunday.

Pastor Leffall stated that the Music was Most outstanding.

Deacon Jason Weatherall was in attendance, at the helm of the sound board and was sure to record Pastor Leffall’s special Resurrection Sunday Message. We will get that message up for you soon.

For all of you who were unable to be in attendance, here is a Copy of our Special Resurrection Sunday Tab – Featuring our dedications to the Memory, and the Honor, of our loved ones.

Resurrection Sunday Tab, April 20th, 2014, Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church, Los Angeles California

A couple of people have asked about the “Live Streaming” – so here’s an update on that. We need a lot more equipment than we currently can afford at this time. Our church is pretty big and on Sundays, there are so many people who bring their devices into the sanctuary that our current wi-fi camera, and wi-fi range, is simply not strong enough to handle all of the traffic. Our live services were being bumped ‘off’ the air. This was a minor setback, which simply let’s us know what else is needed to achieve the goal. Stay tuned as there are plans to test out Live Streaming for some of our Weekly Services here at the Tab; such as our Monday Night and Tuesday Night Bible Studies.

We are also looking for people who’d like to help out with our Media Ministry.

We are looking for people who’d like to cover the services and special events happening at our historic Church, here in Los Angeles. We are looking for people who are social media friendly and are willing to learn how to use it, to help spread the word about the Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church. We are celebrating our 69th Year of Ministry – and under the leadership of our Pastor, Dr. Reginald M. Leffall, III, our goal is to win souls to Christ.

Upcoming events:

Our 26th Annual Women’s Prayer Breakfast happens this Saturday, April 26th – with our guest Speaker Rev. Dr. Damali “Najuma” Smith-Pollard, from Christ Our Redeemer AME Church, in Irvine, California where she serves as their Pastor of Family Ministries. No Breakfast will be served after 9:30 – please get there early. More information is on our Flyer (From the Related Post)

Also coming up, our Annual Women’s Day Service. Also, our Annual Mother’s Day Service is approaching. We will begin taking submissions for dedications in Memory or in Honor of your Mother this coming Sunday.

As always you are encouraged and invited to attend any, and all of our regularly scheduled Services; You were missed if you were unable to be here for Resurrection Sunday, but we do hope you had a blessed one.

Also, we hope to see you here soon… here at The Tab!

Our Website Updates and Upcoming Events

You may have noticed there have been some website updates that have helped to make our site a little more alive.

Now, when you visit The Tab Online you will be greeted with videos from our YouTube channel. More and more videos will be added into our home page playlist. We do encourage you to subscribe to our channel as more Services that have been recorded will be making their way onto our channel. Also it’s a good way to help spread the Ministry of our church – through using the social media platforms that YouTube provides. If you see or hear a song or a sermon that you enjoy, share it with others.

To make it easier to share our website with others – we’ve added several social sharing buttons to the home page.

tabhome_mar14

A while back we added a link and a few selections from our Soundcloud Channel. At this time we’re limited to how much content we can put on the soundcloud channel.

So, on behalf of the Media Ministry I am pleased to announce that very soon, We’ll have an Audio and Video Section of the website that will allow us to view, share and discuss the good news we are hearing, and sharing about the power of Jesus Christ.  

That brings me to the upcoming Events that you’ll want to put on your calendar. Starting with our 26th Annual Women’s Prayer Breakfast. Our guest speaker this year will be Rev. Dr. Damali “Najuma” Smith-Pollard, Pastor of Family Ministries at  Christ Our Redeemer, AME Church, located in Irvine CA.  She was a speaker in previous years and you do not want to miss this Prayer Breakfast.  You can purchase your tickets (donation $35.00) from any of our committee members. If you’re in the Los Angeles Area and want to attend this event, be sure to reach out to us by Calling our Church during regular Office Hours (9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.)

Below is a Flyer of the upcoming Event with more information.

26th Annual Women's Prayer Breakfast

 

Take a look back at a re-cap from a previous Women’s Prayer Breakfast – and stay tuned for more information about this upcoming Service!

We just held our Annual Tabbette’s Musical this past Sunday, and have a very special Mission Emphasis this coming 5th Sunday.

Mark your Calendars, and we do request your attendance at any of our upcoming Services. We look forward to worshiping with you.

The Media Ministry Recaps 2013 at The Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church

2013 was a great year and especially for the  Media Ministry. This Ministry was started by our Pastor, Dr. Reginald M. Leffall – charging us with a mission to spread the Ministry of our Church beyond our Walls – to have an Impact on the community around us. With the explosion of social media, we also wanted to make sure we started tapping into the power of the internet to bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to people everywhere. With our Website we have added new ways to interact with, and keep up with the Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church.

In 2014 most of what we Began doing this year will continue to grow and improve.

Let’s start with a Recap of our YouTube Channel

Fittingly, Deacon Rahshuan Haylock talks about “Moving Forward” from our 69th Church Anniversary, 4th Sunday Morning Service – reflecting on his experience growing up in this church. Our Month Long Observance was a great time to reflect on our historic past, and consider where our church is going into the future. You are invited to be a part of our church as we seek to Serve the community around us, as well as spiritually enrich one another in Christ.  Moving forward we hope to see a growth of our church membership, and have plenty of room for those looking to Work doing the Lord’s Work.

We hope to highlight more of our Ministries here at our Church and let the public know what we need help with – so that you can become a member of our Church to help us as we continue to move forward, and prepare to celebrate our 70th Anniversary in October of 2014.

We rolled out Live Streaming in 2013, and will begin to test our system and improve our system to handle Live Broadcasting in such a huge building. We actually did not have enough equipment to rely on it from week to week, and also have been making improvement to our “video sound quality” – and you’ll begin to notice those difference in 2014 as well. We hope to add an additional video camera, so that we can Stream Live and also record our Weekly Services.

For now, most of our ‘test videos’ will be available for FREE on our YouTube Channel – but as the quality of our videos (and sound) improves, we will begin storing Sermons in our site, and creating a special area for Media Ministry Members to go back and watch OR listen to sermons from our Services. We will be asking for your ongoing financial support when this membership area is ready.  We are going to be looking for new members to join our Media Ministry to help with covering the Services taking place here throughout the upcoming year.

We filmed quite a bit in 2013 that is still being converted, and uploaded – and we have a TON of audios that still need to be converted and uploaded to our Church Servers as well. We will be looking for those who can help with these tasks, as we seek to use our Media Ministry to positively impact those around us; and bring new members to our Church Family.

If you’re interested in Contributing to our Online Publication here, or helping with storing our Media Files on our Church Server and other Social Network Sites – Please contact the Church Office with your Request.

Wishing all of you a Happy New Year, and a Blessed 2014!

Live Streaming Update for October

We are working on adding Live Streaming to our Website, to broadcast our Weekly Morning Services here at our historic Church.

During our first attempt to do it live, during 1st Sunday there was an error which occurred, and caused the feed to drop.

Here are a “short clip” from that Service.

Today I ran a live test, and recorded while playing the CD from 2nd Sunday’s Service.

The test went very well, no problems and as of right now I’m looking at 3 hours of uninterrupted Streaming. So this coming Sunday we will attempt to Stream Live during the Morning Service – Please pray for us!

“Listen” to 2nd Sunday’s Service, with Rev. Gregory Perkins-Bowen delivering the message “Pray For The Preacher”

For now you can learn more about our Live Streaming on our Website here….

Happy New Year from “The Tab” – Newly Added MyTabNow

Hello and welcome to 2013!

MyTabNow is a NEWLY added part of our website – that will be updated by the Impact Ministry.

We’ll use this space to help promote upcoming events, highlight events that took place at our historical church, and share Messages from our Ministers.

Stay Tuned for an exciting 2013!

WhoThe ‘domain name’ MyTabNow.org was registered in 2010 to create a shortened way to access our website, which was originally registered as http://tabernacleoffaithbaptistchurch.com (which is a very long name) —– while wanting to maintain our Original Name; we simply point the shorter name to our Official site.

Still, wanting to do something with our shorter domain, the decision was made to open up MyTabNow – Online; and use this platform to keep others up to date, on all we are doing.
