Pastor's Blog: Psalm 1
We will continue drive-in services through the last Sunday of May. I’m grateful for this opportunity for us to worship together. One addition we are making available is that, if you so desire, you can bring a lawn chair and sit outside of your vehicle, providing you maintain social distancing. In other words, you must stay next to your car. Bear in mind that this Sunday will likely be the warmest day of the year so far, so it may be more comfortable to stay in your car, listen by the radio and use your air conditioning as needed.
Brother Kenny is planning a Memorial Day weekend concert in the parking lot on May 23 at 7 pm. This will be a better time of day for lawn chairs. The rules for drive-in worship will be in effect for this concert – in other words, the building will not be open for any reason.
This Sunday I will be preaching one of my all-time favorite passages, Psalm 1. The message is titled “Planted by the Rivers, The Difference in the Saint and the Sinner.” Please pray and prepare your heart to hear from the Lord. The Psalmist says, “And whatever he does shall prosper.” Now, wouldn’t you like to see that promise fulfilled in your life? Come Sunday, we’ll explain how it works!

We will be back in the building for worship on June 7!!! Plans are moving forward to get the church ready. We will be required to social distance. We are strongly encouraging you to wear a mask and gloves. It will not be required. Other rules will be published before we meet together. We have developed a “Welcome Home” page on the website that will give the details. Please be patient and realize that the page represents current planning that is subject to change. For the latest updates please check this page: https://www.tbcmacon.com/welcomehome
We have ordered Lord’s Supper supplies that we can use which will allow to have observe the ordinance in a safe and healthy manner. We are planning this for our first gathering in the building, but it will be contingent on getting the supplies in.
We are having a great time with our Wednesday night prayer service live on Facebook at 7 pm. The Q & A on the Bible with Pastor Tom has been interesting, and I believe we are learning a lot. Send your questions directly to my email account please, firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put in the subject line–TBC Q & A. Or go to our website: https://www.tbcmacon.com/question - there is a form you can fill out with your question and it will come to me.
MFL (Men Fearing the Lord) is meeting by Zoom on Sunday nights at 7 pm. If you have not received a Zoom invitation, send me an email requesting to be put on the invitation list. We are continuing our study of “Returning to Holiness” by Dr. Gregory Frizzell.
Please remember that the church’s financial needs continue. Thank you for your faithfulness in this regard. You can mail your tithe check to the church (please use the new PO Box) or give online at: https://app.easytithe.com/App/Giving/tabe6611136.
As always, I am looking forward to what God will do at Tabernacle this coming Sunday. Please be present with your Bibles in hand as we worship the Lord together – from our cars, trucks, living rooms, dens, and other locations! Pray!
Blessings, YFJS, Bro. Tom
