Long Description:
This white steepled church, on Carranza Road in tiny Tabernacle, began with a membership of 50. Though the membership has grown sustantially since then, it still retains the old town charm and welcoming.

Before the establishment of a volunteer fire company, the church bell was rung as a fire warning and the whole community answered it's call. In WWII, the bell was tolled for air raid drills.

Now, the bell chimes 33 times times every Sunday, to commemorate the years the Jesus Christ lead an earthly life.

Thanks to the Tabernacle Historical Society, we know the first couple to exchange their wedding vows in this church were Bea and Raymond Worrell in 1938.
