MERGE is an on-ramp for people who want to get connected to the vision, mission, and direction of the Tabernacle. It is an opportunity to meet the staff, hear our story, and learn our DNA. MERGE isn’t a class. It features outstanding food and a laid-back, conversational atmosphere with new friends, which is led by the pastoral staff. MERGE is a requirement for those seeking to become members at the Tabernacle, but not exclusively for those membership candidates. Current members are welcome and there is no pressure to join the church for those who haven’t.
