Pastor Craig Rush brings us a message from the Book of Acts entitled, "Growing the Kingdom, from Norfolk to the Nations."

Jan 5, 2020

Many of us have been reflecting on the enormous changes that have transpired over the past decade. But what kind of person will you be in ten years? What will your relationship with God be like? And, what changes can you make now to become that person?

We all have goals, plans, hopes, and dreams for the coming decade, so join us for this message as we think about, "You, in Ten Years."

Dec 29, 2019

As we close out this decade at Tab church and enter into a critical next couple of years for the church, we will take a look at hope and faith and how they play a part in our lives and how they shape our future and the future of the church.

Dec 22, 2019

This week we will be reflecting on the carol, "Emmanuel." Interestingly, we don't know when this carol was first written or sung, but many scholars believe that the words of this song go back as far as the 6th century.

Now, if you are familiar with the song, you know the word "rejoice" is repeated throughout the carol. "Rejoice, rejoice! Emmanuel shall come to thee O Israel." And why should we rejoice? We rejoice for the best reason of all. We rejoice because Emmanuel is coming. Our savior, Emmanuel, God with us, is coming. And that is a reason to celebrate.

So join us for this message as we continue our current series, Carols.

Dec 15, 2019

As we continue our Christmas series, "Carols," guest speaker Mike Fariss will help us focus on the hymn, "Oh Come All Ye Faithful," and on Isaiah 49:5-6.

Join us for this message, and as the words of this favorite carol encourage us, exult and adore the King of Angels, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Dec 8, 2019

In our new sermon series, "Carols," we'll take a look at some of our favorite Christmas songs and examine the profound truths contained in the lyrics of these much-loved carols.

I think you'll find that these familiar tunes will take on new meaning as we move through the series, and more importantly, you'll grow in your understanding and appreciation of our Savior, who was born in Bethlehem.

Dec 1, 2019

In this message, we are pleased to welcome Nigel “Legin” Anderson as our guest speaker. A lifelong Hampton Roads resident, Nigel lives in Norfolk, Virginia, with his wife Tia and two children.

Nigel’s teaching will bless and encourage you. Join us as he opens God’s Word.

Nov 24, 2019

The Bible is clear. As Christ Followers, we are called to demonstrate incredible hospitality to the world around us. This week we are pleased to have Tab’s Elder Board Chairman John Close as our guest speaker. John will be discussing this very topic and what it means in our lives and our church.

Nov 17, 2019

Americans worry more about money than work issues, personal relationships, and even the threat of terrorism. What's worse is research shows that if you have poor financial health, you are more likely also to have poor physical health.

And if overwhelming stress and poor health aren't bad enough, we have all seen instances where the pursuit of material wealth has driven people to do some despicable things.

Is it any wonder that many people consider money to be "the root of all evil?"

Surprisingly, Jesus never says that money is the root of all evil, but he does have a lot to say about how we should think about money and possessions.

So, join us for this message as we look at what the Bible has to say about how we should think about money, possessions, and eternity.

Nov 10, 2019

Most of us think we should get what we deserve. We put in a hard day at work, and we look forward to receiving a paycheck at the end of the week.

But Jesus never said that we get what we deserve. And his actions often demonstrated just the opposite.

So, join us for this message as we continue our series, "Things Jesus Never Said."

Nov 3, 2019

As we continue our series, "Things Jesus Never Said," we are going to address the question of how to be happy.

Now, it's fascinating to hear some of the conventional wisdom about how to be happy. Mindset, circumstances, and alcohol, these are all things that traditional wisdom claims can make our lives happy.

Not surprisingly, Jesus has a very different prescription for being happy. And this week, we're going to examine the unconventional wisdom of Jesus to find out how we can be truly happy.

This week, we are beginning a four-week series called "Things Jesus Never Said." You see, to truly understand the truth of what Jesus said, it sometimes helps to look at what he didn't say. Looking at what He didn't say, can help us understand the truth of what he did say.

In this message, we'll focus on the topic of forgiveness. We'll look at Jesus didn't say about the issue of forgiveness to help us focus on what He did say about forgiving the people in our lives.

Oct 20, 2019

We are excited to welcome John Gray, Executive Director of The Union Mission Ministries, as our guest speaker.

Join us for this message as John discusses what God can accomplish when we rely, not on our ability, but on the strength and ability of our Savior, Jesus.

Oct 13, 2019

What do you do when the answer to your prayer isn't the answer you are looking for; when God's response to your request is "no?"

Such a response can be hard to receive, and sometimes it can be heartbreaking. We remember all that the Bible says about God hearing our prayers, and ask, "Why is God saying no to me?"

In this week's message, we'll learn some of the reasons God says, "No" to our requests. Moreover, we'll learn how we can trust everything God does, even when what he does is to tell us "No."

Oct 6, 2019

In the busyness of life, it is often challenging even to find time to pray. It's easy to come to the end of the day and realize that we haven't taken a moment to talk with our heavenly father.

Our Heavenly Father wants us to talk with him. And in this week's message, we're going to discuss ways to make prayer more than a task that we try to work into our day. We are going to learn some practical strategies to transform the moments of our day into moments with God.

Sep 29, 2019

When I became a Christian in high school, Chris, my youth pastor was the first guy to pour his life into mine and disciple me. We went through a lot of things together. Through dealing with uncomfortable breakups with girls and a lot of school issues, I learned that I could trust Chris.

Even when he said things that seemed hurtful, I could trust him because I knew that he cared for me and he wanted the best for me.

In this week's message, we're going to explore the question, "How can we trust God when we pray?"

Sep 22, 2019

Some people pray, and they shake the world with their prayers. They change things with their prayers. How is that some people pray in a way that makes such a difference?

I believe that there are keys to powerful prayer. So, in this message, I want to explore what it means to have a powerful prayer life and how you can have a powerful prayer life.

Sep 15, 2019

You know that when we talk with someone, we need to know a little bit about that person to know how to speak to them. We need to know what they're about and what they're thinking to have a good conversation.

This is true of God, as well. We have to understand who God is if we're going to have a conversation with Him if we are going to pray effectively. The more we know about who our heavenly father is, the better we can understand how we should pray.

In this message, we'll explore who God is and how that relates to prayer.

God wants to talk with you. He is never too busy, and your concerns are never too small. 

God desires to speak with us because he desires a relationship with us. He wants to be close to you, to hear your concerns and the desires of your heart.

Join us for this message as we begin our series, "40 Days of Prayer."

Psalm 51 is about David’s journey back to God. David had a tremendous fall, but his fall is not the end of the story. David was able to restore his relationship with God.

Psalm 51 warns of the consequences of sin, but the good news is that it also shows how God forgives those who
have fallen and describes for each of us, the path back to God.

So, join us for this message as we consider Psalm 51 and the Journey Back to God.

Aug 25, 2019

In this message, we're going to be looking at a parable about inner purity. When you have guests visiting, you probably make an effort to clean your house. But imagine if you only cleaned up the outside of your home. You wash the windows. Maybe you even put on a new coat of paint.

However, upon entering, your guest sees that inside of your house is a mess. There is trash everywhere, and everything is just disgusting.

This is what Jesus talks about in the parable we're looking at this week. People often work on the exterior things to make themselves presentable, but they miss the inside entirely.

Aug 18, 2019

Some consider the Parable of Sheep and the Goats the "crown" of the parables. Jesus teaches about the end of time, judgment, and the things God has in mind.

As Jesus approaches Calvary and the cross, he takes time to share what believers should be doing based on who we are, our being in Christ.

So, join us as we look at the Parable of Sheep and the Goats in Matthew 25.
