I found out last week that a Church in our community would be no more.
The Tabernacle Church in Locust Fork would merge with The Turning Point church,
because of lack of members.
This church is over 100 years old.
It has always ( in my lifetime) been Tabernacle.
Because Tabernacle is the same denomination as my church,
As a young child we would be ask to join in on plays, and special events.
I remember this fondly.
In a time when people are losing jobs, families are losing homes, and money is as tight as bark on a tree,
I was naive in thinking the churches was safe.
As I googled Church Closing I was amazed that there was 9,450,000 hits.
Where do we go in a time of need
if our church's close?
My church, is my safe place.
I feel protected in Church.
What do you think?
