“In today’s society, the true meaning of Christmas can be lost. We wish to bring back the nostalgic traditions that bond neighbors together. We are excited about spearheading events that are sure to connect people and show what community really means,” said De’Andre Salter, Senior Pastor of The Tabernacle Church.
On Saturday, December 22nd at 5PM, South Plainfield residents will get to experience a tradition that is rarely carried out. The Tabernacle Church, along with South Plainfield children ages 5 to 12, will be traveling through different neighborhoods in the township spreading holiday cheer as they sing classic Christmas carols outdoors- the old fashioned way. This is sure to get residents in the Christmas spirit. On Sunday, December 23rd at 9AM, a special worship experience like no other will be taking place at The Tabernacle Church in South Plainfield. With the service being a highly interactive experience, it will feature dynamic singing and a message of hope from Senior Pastor, De’Andre Salter.
After the December 23rd morning service, at 12 noon, children and youth from both the community and The Tabernacle Church will deliver holiday cheer, in the form of gift giving and song to developmentally disabled residents of Keystone Community Residence (http://www.keystonecomliving.com/
On Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24th, at 2PM, there will be a celebration held at The Tabernacle Church that is open to everyone. This celebration will be filled with “gut busting” Christian comedy, singing, and the debut of a creative video production made in entirety by local teens. As a result of donations from the Red Cross, Pepsi and many local businesses, every child in attendance will be presented with a special gift at this celebration. This will be a Christmas Eve for families to remember.
