When we let God write our stories, He writes a story worth telling! God writes a story abundantly more than we could ever imagine! But allowing God to write our story takes a step of faith.

In this message, we meet the blind-beggar Bartimaeus, and we learn from his encounter with Jesus what it meant for him to let God write his story!

This week we are going to be continuing our sermon series, "What's Your story?" We're going to look at how God uses suffering in our story. I know we all have had difficult times in our lives. Maybe you're experiencing a difficult time right now, with all that is happening in our world. And, we've asked ourselves the question, why, why all this suffering in the world? And so we're going to wrestle with this important topic in this message.

Can you imagine meeting Jesus in person? That's what happens the in the passage we're discussing this week, the author tells us that Jesus was walking along, and he sees a tax collector named Levi. And, where others might have seen a dreaded tax collector, Jesus saw potential.

God sees us too. And, He sees our potential. When it comes to our story, God gets personal!

Mar 15, 2020

Mike Fariss, President of Urban Discovery Ministries, concludes our series on "Big 'C' Church" by exploring Ephesians 5 and discussing what it means to walk carefully and live wisely in the light that Christ provides each of us.

Mar 8, 2020

The big idea that we're going to be talking about in this message is "Changed for Good." Now, you can read this phrase in two ways. When we follow Jesus, we're changed for good, and we're changed for good! In this message, we'll talk about both and how these changes impact our lives.

Mar 1, 2020

Last week we talked about how we are all in the same boat, our ability to unify around the cross, and the mission that allows the church to be all that God intends.

This week we are going to turn a page in the book of Ephesians, literally. We're going to be starting a whole new section of the book and considering how the mission that God has called us to and the amazing grace that He has given us impacts our daily lives.

Feb 23, 2020

This week we're going to continue our series, Big 'C' Church, by considering the fact that the early church was such an eclectic, mixed group of people. Often we don't realize just how radical it was for the early church to be composed of people from all different walks of life.

So, why does God call people from so many different walks of life and unite them together to accomplish His purposes for the world? Join us as we dig into that question in this message.

Feb 16, 2020

This week we're beginning a brand new sermon series entitled "Big 'C' Church." For the next several weeks, we're going to look at the universal church, all of us together.

In this message, we'll be looking at the book of Ephesians and asking, "What is God doing through the church? What is He calling us to be a part of?"

If you are in the Tidewater area, I hope you'll join us Sunday at 10:00 AM. Find directions and more at www.tabchurch.org.

Feb 9, 2020

In this message, we'll conclude our series, "The Roaring 20s," by thinking together about how to build up the body of Christ so that we can become mature in our relationship with Jesus. A maturity that results in the advancing of the gospel and equipping the saints through the gifting that God provides.

So join as we consider how God is equipping and maturing his church for the work of the ministry.

Feb 2, 2020

Last week we talked about the need for unity within the community here at Tab to have a successful ten years. Well, not only do we need unity, but we also need diversity because the scriptures speak to the need for diversity.

In first Corinthians 12, God's Word tells us that we are in one in spirit, both the Greek, the Jew, and the slave. That pretty much covers everyone. This passage also speaks to some very difficult racial tensions that the early church had to navigate to become one. Within that oneness, there was diversity. The Greeks remain Greeks, and the slaves remained slaves. However, they learned how to have church together and celebrated the different gifts that the spirit gave within their midst. The church was successful because even though it had diversity, it also had unity. In this message, we want to think about the need to celebrate our diversity. Tab has diversity, and we want to celebrate that and push that forward into the new decade so that we might at the end of ten years, be able to say that tap had a successful decade.

The 1920s were one of the most defining decades in modern history. Jazz music was born, art deco was born, and in the United States, women got the right to vote.

But I believe the 2020s, have the potential to be one of the most historic decades in our church. We have the opportunity to move the Gospel forward and expand the Kingdom of God in extraordinary ways. Join us as we consider the next decade at Tab Church.

Jan 19, 2020

Pastor Olah Moore was the first African-American intern here at Tab and one of the first African American missionaries sent out by Tabernacle Church.

Pastor Moore is the president emeritus, and his wife, Debbie Moore, is president-elect of the Crisis Pregnancy Center of Tidewater. Join us for Pastor Moore's message as he helps us reflect on the sanctity of human life.

Jan 12, 2020

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.

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.
