2021 Thanksgiving Baskets
Nehemiah Tabernacle Building Campaign 2021
Building for our Future
Nehemiah Tabernacle is a welcoming congregation that brings the straight and the LGBTQ communities together in worship and community service. This congregation is asking for you to donate any amount toward the purchase of our new church home and the needed repairs to the building. The purchase of this building will be crucial for the growth of the congregation and the extra space will help expand the much needed community programs of the church. The church’s largest community program is the Diaper Ministry. The Diaper Ministry gives 50 low income families diapers every month. The new building is a must for the much needed space for storage. We have a waiting list of 50 new families. We cannot expand this program without the new building.
The church serves the community with the following additional programs: the Food Bank, HIV/AIDS Ministry, and Water Filter Program. In the future, the church will serve the community in the following services: community dinners, job training program, summer camp and a medical clinic. The church’s mission is to address the holistic needs of humankind and continue to provide a worship community for all people.
This campaign will end on December 31, 2021.
Our Goal: $850,000
Helping Individuals in Need
On Friday, November 19, 2021, Nehemiah Tabernacle will provide Thanksgiving baskets for low income families. Each basket will feed a family of 4 individuals.
Please donate below any amount to help us feed families during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Week of November 14, 2021
Title: Spiritual Practices
Solitude—Spending time alone to be with God. Find a quiet place to be alone with God for a period of time. Use the Bible as a source of companionship with God. Listen to Him. Remain alone and still.
Luke 6:12 - And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and continued all night in prayer to God.
Silence—Removing noisy distractions to hear from God. Find a quiet place away from noise to hear from God. Write your thoughts and impressions as God directs your heart. Silence can occur even in the midst of noise and distraction. But you must focus your attention on your soul. This could mean talking less or talking only when necessary. And it could mean turning off the radio and the TV.
Psalms 46:10 - Be still, and know that I [am] God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Fasting—Skipping a meal(s) to find greater nourishment from God. Choose a period of time to go without food. Drink water and, if necessary, take vitamin supplements. Feel the pain of having an empty stomach and depend on God to fill you with His grace.
Mark 9:29 - And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.
Thriftiness (Penny-pinching)—Learning to live with less money and still meet your basic needs. Before buying something new, choose to go without or pick a less expensive alternative that will serve your basic needs. Live a simple, focused life.
Proverbs 21:20 - [There is] treasure to be desired and oil in the dwelling of the wise; but a foolish man spendeth it up.
Chastity—Voluntarily choosing to abstain from sexual pleasures for a time (those pleasures that are deemed morally right in the bond of marriage) to find higher fulfillment in God. Decide together as a couple to set aside time to go without sexual pleasures in order to experience a deeper relationship with God in prayer.
1 Thessalonians 4:3 - For this is the will of God, [even] your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
Privacy (Secrecy)—Avoiding self-promotion, practice serving God without others knowing. Give in secret. Serve “behind the scenes” in a ministry that you are assured few will know about.
Matthew 6:6 - But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
Sacrifice—Giving of our resources beyond what seems reasonable to remind us of our dependence on Christ. Choose to give your time or finances to the Lord beyond what you normally would.
Hebrews 13:16 - But to do good and to communicate forget not: for with such sacrifices God is well pleased.
Study—Spending time reading the Scriptures and meditating on its meaning and importance to our lives. We are nourished by the Word because it is our source of spiritual strength. Choose a time and a place to feed from the Word of God regularly.
II Timothy 2:15King - Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.
Worship—Offering praise and adoration to God. His praise should continually be on our lips and in our thoughts. Read psalms, hymns, or spiritual songs, or sing to the Lord daily using a praise tape. Keep praise ever before you as you think of God’s mighty deeds in your life.
Psalm 34:3 - O magnify the Lord with me, and let us exalt His name together.
Prayer—Talking to and listening to God about your relationship with Him and about the concerns of others. Find time to pray to God without the distraction of people or things. Combine your prayer time with meditation on the Scriptures in order to focus on Christ.
Philippians 4:6 - Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Fellowship—Mutual caring and ministry in the body of Christ. Meet regularly with other Christians to find ways to minister to others. Encourage one another.
Psalm 55:14 - We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.
Confession—Regularly confess your sins to the Lord and other trusted individuals. As often as you are aware of sin in your life, confess it to the Lord and to those you may have offended.
1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us [our] sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
Submission—Humbling yourself before God and others while seeking accountability in relationships. Find faithful brothers or sisters in Christ who can lovingly hold you accountable for your actions and growth in Christ.
1 Peter 5:6 - Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:
