Reach Out

When it comes to our spiritual life, so many of us want more. Though contented, we are not satisfied to stay in the same place. We want more of God, more significant relationships, and we want to do more in order to make our community a better reflection of God's Kingdom. So we press on, reaching for that next higher level. In this series we look at stretching in specific directions in order to grasp the life God desires and the life we want.


What are You Reaching For?

Reach: To stretch in a specified direction in order to grasp something. What are you reaching for?

When it comes to our spiritual life, so many of us want more. Though contented, we are not satisfied to stay in the same place. We want more of God, more significant relationships, and we want to do more in order to make our community a better reflection of God’s Kingdom. So we press on, reaching for that next higher level.

This Sunday, we will begin a series entitled “Reach.” For the next few weeks we will be looking at stretching in specific directions in order to grasp the life God desires and the life we want.

Reach Up

Just think about how difficult it would be if you went on a long trip and didn’t have any directional signs pointing the way. It would not only be frustrating, it could lead to you being helplessly lost.

When it comes to the journey that really matters, the journey of life, God leaves us a clear directional sign so we can reach our desired destination. Unfortunately, many people don’t read the sign.

In this message we our eyes on this sign. Read Hebrews 12:1-3 in preparation for our map reading lesson.

How Tab Church Helps You Reach Up

We all know what it’s like to see that object on the top shelf and then as we reach for it, we find that it is just a bit out of our grasp.

But God’s not like that. He’s reachable. As we pursue Him, He promises to make Himself and his power available, reachable, and attainable. In this message, we will continue our Reach series and consider what it means to reach up to God.

Reach In - Part 1

In this message, we continue our REACH series by looking at what it means to REACH IN. We’ve spent the past few weeks considering what it means to reach up and in coming weeks we will consider what it means to reach out.

But this week, we will spend some time thinking about what it means to reach in and serve those within the church. This is often a neglected part of the Christian life but as we will see, it is vitally important for our spiritual health.

Reach In - Part 2

Uncle Sam Wants You. Back in the days of World War II, our government did a pretty good job of convincing people that we could overcome our enemies if each one would just step up to the plate and do their part. The phrase “Uncle SAM Wants You” was a common slogan encouraging people to volunteer their resources in order to get the job done.

God wants you. God makes it very clear that every person in His family is to be involved in doing his or her part to “reach in” and build up the church. Not only that, but He promises to give us what we need in order to get the job done. Everyone has a God-given and God-empowered gift, skill, or ability, to be contributed to the common good of His church. No matter who you are or how inadequate you feel, you have been empowered by God for this task.

In this message we will consider what God says about serving the church and His empowerment to do so. We can be the church God desires us to be only if each one does his or her part.

Reach Out - Part 1

UP. IN. OUT. These three words have been the focus of our sermon series called Reach.

We’ve discovered that in order to be healthy Christians we must concentrate in these three areas of our lives: Focusing on Jesus (Up), serving the church (In), and reaching out (Out).

In this message, we will begin a two week emphasis looking at the third area, reaching Out. We will consider a healthy approach in reaching out.

Reach Out - Part 2

God doesn’t need you. Our God is all knowing and all powerful. He is self-sustaining in every way. He is not dependent on any human to accomplish anything. But although He doesn’t need us, He chooses to use us and what is more, He is counting on us to promote his Kingdom’s growth.

In this message, we are going to discuss two ways God is counting on Tab to build His Kingdom in Norfolk. Barbara King and Kurnia Foe will share about the ministries they lead and how we can join them in building the Kingdom right here in Norfolk.
