Worshiping with Live streaming Sundays at 10 am until churches can reopen.

Welcome to Tabernacle United Methodist Church. We are absolutely delighted that you found interest in our church. Whether you're in town for a short visit, moving to the area and looking for a place to worship, or even seeking a new church to be in service, Tabernacle is a wonderful welcoming place to live, love, and learn Christ's message.



"God uses worship to transform lives, heal wounded souls, renew hope, shape decisions, provoke change, inspire compassion, and bind people to one another (Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations, by Robert Schnase, p. 34)."  For this reason worship must be passionate.  Individuals need to feel a part of that all important hour on Sunday.  They need uplifting leaders and music, they need to receive support, and they need to gain a sense of belonging or connection through experiences such as communion.
