1 Peter: Living as Strangers in a Secular World

In the first century, Gentile believers were suffering and facing persecution because of their faith in Jesus. Peter wrote a letter to remind them that their heavenly hope and eternal inheritance outweighed anything faced in this life. He encouraged them to live holy lives motivated by love. The message delivered by Peter has great relevance for today, as more pressure is being exerted on believers around the world. This January Bible Study will be a source of encouragement to believers facing this increasing pressure, reminding them that they are foreigners in a distant land and that one day they will gain the privileges of their heavenly citizenship. Study guides will be $5 each and available in January.

PORT (People Organizing Resources Together)
Tabernacle hosts Newport News' ministry to the homeless for one week Jan 10-17, 6 pm-6am each day. How it works: Churches in Newport News form a network to provide shelter for the homeless during the cold winter nights. Site churches commit to a week of allowing homeless guests to sleep in their church overnight; partner churches provide supper and breakfast. Men and women sleep separately, and LINK of Newport News provides vinyl-foam mattresses. Women with children are allowed to stay together in a separate family room. Guests are separated from their belongings (to prevent use of drugs or weapons), which are tagged and stored. A sheriff’s deputy is present, and guests may not come and go. They are allowed outside for one smoke break and lights-out is at 10 pm. Guests must leave at 6 am and are not allowed to hang around the church until they return at 6 pm (but they do, so keep this in mind if you come and go at the church that week). This ministry requires many volunteers and resources;to volunteer contact the Church Office. Donations of new socks and underwear for all ages and sizes are always needed. Please bring your items to the church prior to or the week of PORT.
