Dear TBC Parents,

Greetings! I am excited about all the things happening in Children’s Ministry at Tabernacle this fall, and our Children’s Ministry Team wanted to make sure you were in the loop.

Minster to Children & Families

We announced our candidate for the part time position of Minister to Children and Families this past Sunday, Rev. Jerusha Moses. Some of you may know Jerusha and her daughter Misha already, as they have attended Tabernacle from time to time over the past few years. If you don’t know Jerusha, or would like to learn more about her, her resume is at the Welcome Center outside of the sanctuary. There are also copies of an interview she did with Baptist Women in Ministry available for you. Please make plans to be with us on Sunday, September 2, when we will vote on Jerusha’s hire. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the Children’s Ministry team, or to me directly.


Wednesday Worship Arts (6-7 PM on Wednesday, beginning September 12th)

During the summer, I sat down with the Children’s Ministry team and our faithful volunteers to discuss our goals for Wednesday evening programming. We are excited to expand our emphasis on “Worship Arts” with our children this fall! We want to continue our deep commitment to choir and musical arts, while also integrating more intentionally the connection between Bible stories, music, mission, and other forms of art. Charity Roberson and I have worked to develop curriculum ideas that pair with the music our kids will be singing and the stories from Scripture that we will hear in worship each Sunday. We have also changed some of our classroom spaces up, details below!


Preschool Worship Arts (Age 3- Kindergarten)

Teachers: Helen Davidson and Charity Roberson

Where: The new Preschool room on the main floor of the building in the previous Godly Play space.


1st & 2nd Grade Worship Arts

Teachers: Judy Fiske and Kathy McGraw

Where: The new space for 1st and 2nd grade worship arts is on the main floor, across from the women’s restroom.


3rd-5th Grade Worship Arts

Teachers: Jessica Corbitt and Terry Witt

Where: This class will meet in the same space, on the main floor next to the men’s restroom.


Sunday School (9:45-10:45 on the 2nd floor of the Williams Building)

This summer we enjoyed time with youth and adults in integrational Sunday school! Now that we are headed back into the school year, we will jump back into our regular Sunday school rhythm. We have 4 new teachers who are excited to begin working with our kids this Fall, as well as 4 returning teachers who continue to serve faithfully. We are grateful for their amazing investment in our children! The schedule has shifted somewhat as well. Our children (kindergarten-5th grade) will meet together from 9:45-10:00 to watch a video on the lesson for the week. At 10, they will break into age-based groups for activities and conversation. Please remember to have your children in the Sunday school classroom as close to 9:45 as possible so they don’t miss the video portion of Sunday school!

As summer winds down, I am praying for each of you and your families! The Children’s Team and our amazing volunteers are looking forward to reconnecting with you and your children this fall!
