Just thought you should know about some of the Upcoming Services & Schooling at The Tab!

Wednesday, September 9th, our Fall Semester for School of Evangelism begins enrollment starting at 7:00 p.m.

Our School of Evangelism will prepare you to go out and spread the good news of Jesus Christ.

Call or contact the Church

We also recommend you attend any or all of our Regularly Scheduled Services which are Scrolling on our Church Home Page.

We also have a few special Services that we want to draw your attention to, starting with our Annual Family/Friends Homecoming Service happening on 4th Sunday, September 27th @ 11:00 a.m. We are asking for our family members and friends, as well as former members of our church home to return to worship with us On this special Sunday morning. The church member with the most family members in attendance will receive special recognition. We want to pack the pews in a great time of Worship, Praise and Celebration!

Our Special Guest Minister for this Service will be Rev. Hosea Collins, Youth and Young Adult Pastor from The City of Refuge Church (located in Gardena, CA). You do not want to miss this Service! All in attendance will be blessed by a good word from a minister devoted to assisting others in the discovery and fulfillment of their God-given purposes.


We Also want to encourage you to attend our Early Morning Worship Service which starts at 8:00 a.m. and is over by 9:00 a.m. – Lessons are given by Rev. Gregory Perkins-Bowen. You are going to learn something new every single week in these Early Morning Worship Services; and then you can stay for Sunday School And Morning Worship Service at 11:00 a.m. – Our Early Morning Worship Services are held in Ferrells Chapel for now. Our goal is to out grow the room. If for whatever reason you are unable to attend services at 11:00 – our early Morning Worship Service is now here to ensure that you are growing closer in your relationship with God. Bring a friend, we will see you there!
