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!

Celebrate Black History at The Tab

February has begun, and that means that Black History month is currently underway.  You are invited to come and Celebrate Black History all month long here at The Tab.

1st Sunday Cover, for Black History Month


Some of our Regularly Scheduled Services have changed.

Please refer to our home page website for times and days of our Ongoing Ministries here at The Tab.

On 4th Sunday, we will have our annual African American Cultural Day and Fellowship Feast.

Put this on your calendar now!

Also, all month long, inside your Tabs (which all who are in attendance will receive) we will feature known, and unknown black men and women who overcame great obstacles in this nation. They are all evidence that no challenge put in our path is too big for us, or for our God! Looking back on black history gives us the opportunity to learn more about ourselves, and who we really are. We are not going to be defined in a positive light by those who’ve always seen us in a negative one. So during this month, we put a special spotlight on our story.


In the words of our Interim Pastor, Willie D. Hall, perhaps we’ll eventually reach a point where we celebrate black history all year round.

We hope to see you during this special month, here at the Tab!

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!

The Tabernacle Observes 69th Church Anniversary

The Tabernacle of Faith Baptist Church is in the midst of a month-long Observance of its’ 69th Church Anniversary.

Organized in 1944 by the late Reverend F.D. Ferrell and 38 visionary “Christ like Charter Members”, who were inspired to organize a church and call a Pastor. The seeds of faith sown now m ore than 69 years ago have blossomed and Tabernacle stands as a strong “Religious Tower” within the Watts Community, our city state and nation.

Thus on this significant milestone, the current members are in the spirit of thanksgiving and celebration, thanking God for the multitude of loving kindness to us as a body of believers in Christ across these 69 years.

Anthony Spottsville, Pastor of New Beginning Baptist Church, guest minister. The Ordinance of The Lord’s Supper was administered at the Service.

On the past Sunday, the Reverend Gregory Perkins-Bowen preached a powerful and most inspirational message entitled “Pray For The Preacher”. This Sunday, October 20th at 3:30 p.m. there will be an All Choir Musical Service.

The Culminating Service will be held on the 4th Sunday, October 27th at 11:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. will be our Evening Service. The Rev. Shane B. Scott, Lead Pastor at the historical Macedonia Baptist Church will be the guest Minister. He will be accompanied by the Choir, Officers, Ushers and members, said a spokes person … “Pastor Scott is one of the nations most gifted and dynamic proclaimers of God’s Word.”
