Some of the most powerful and engaging times are when we come together as a full congregation in celebration and worship. May presents us with two opportunities for corporate prayer and fellowship. Won't you join us for the Refresh Service and Communion Dinner as we delight in the Lord's presence and each others company?
Refresh Service  
Mark your calendars for our next Refresh Service with guest Pastor Steve Williams of City Church in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Pastor Steve will bless us with his teaching on Sunday, May 27th at a joint Celebration Service at 10 am (Life Development Classes will be at 9 am) and at a Refresh Service at 6 pm. Be prepared for a great message!

Communion & Carry-In Dinner
On Wednesday, May 30th, there will be a Carry-In Dinner at 6pm followed by a 7 pm Communion Service. The Carry-In Dinner is a potluck style dinner, where we provide the main entree and church members provide their favorite salad, side dish or dessert. Don't miss this wonderful time of sharing a meal and the Lord's Supper.
Getting To Know Peggie Harbaugh 

Peggie Harbaugh was excited when God gave her a vision in 1985 that she and her husband Brent would some day do counseling together. Brent on the other hand, shook his head in total disbelief (his story is in the next E-News, so stay tuned for that). It has been a long and interesting journey to becoming our Co-Director of Pastoral Counseling. Peggie has worked as a nurse in public health, a school teacher and a church receptionist. In 2006 she obtained her masters in Pastoral Counseling and began working here at The Tab in 2007. Raised in Wyoming, this mother of five, will be celebrating her 43rd wedding anniversary in June.

Healing Prayers Answered
By Pastor Brent Harbaugh

Employment, mass in breast disappeared, husband back, cough healed...these are just a few of the testimonies of God's answers to prayers for healing, provision and deliverance that were shared with members of the altar prayer team. Each month, we are going to share a testimony and a list of current praise reports to inspire and encourage you.

One Sunday morning when my daughter was 7, I decided to take her forward for prayer. She had fallen years ago and hurt her lower back and it would occasionally seize up and stop her with pain. More

Thank You Jesus for healing, deliverance, and provision. Email testimonies to Pastor Brent or tell any of our prayer partners-don't keep your testimony a secret-it will encourage others to seek prayer and build the faith of the prayer partners as well as those needing prayer.  


Join us for our next Healing Prayer Gathering, Sunday, May 20th at 6 pm in the Worship Center.    


The Mother Load 
By Lysa TerKeurst

We moms should never build the stability of our identity on the fragility of our kid's choices.


Let me say it again just so this crucial truth can sink in a little deeper. I'm repeating it for no other reason, sweet sister, than the fact I need this message.So, forgive me if the blog on this Monday preaches a message only to myself.

We moms should never build the stability of our identity on the fragility of our kid's choices.


I've got 5 amazing kids.  I really do.  They are wildly funny, imaginative, moody, opinionated, strong, weak, happy, sad, good and sometimes not so good. In other words they're pretty normal.  And while I've done everything in my power to raise them to turn out amazingly awesome- and they very well might turn out amazingly awesome- there aren't any guarantees. Sometimes bad parents raise terrific kids. And sometimes terrific parents raise kids that chase bad things their whole life. More
