The Moving Forward Group
In 1982, a group of teenagers got together along with our own Mother Lue B. Tuggle and Sister Princess Harris , to try and bring the Christian Tabernacle teenagers and children together, The name "Moving Forward Group " was chosen because our goal was to move forward for the Lord. With the approval of Pastor Woods, this group came together for many reasons: one which was to be able to talk about problems that teenagers have and try good for other devoted church workers.
Out of this group, other roles were assigned to our young people. This include:
The Christian Tabernalce Youth Voices & Sunbeam Choirs
(under the direction of Min. Carson)
The Junior Usher Board
(under the direction of Sis. Bush & Sis. Winfied)
The Youth Nurses Board
(under the direction of Sis. Vessels & Sis. Jones)
The young people are also involved in other groups which did not stem from the Moving Forward Group such as:The Youth Fellowship
(under the direction of Mother Street)
(under the direction of Minister Mobley)
The Agents & Cadets
(under the direction of Minister Mason)
We plan for social events and try to keep all of our children and young adults busy in a clean, respectable and Christian Way. We thank God for Pastor Woods, the kind spiritual father who allows room for growth in our youth. Each year we try to show special recognition to people who have been faithful, devoted and helpful in whatever way they can to further the ongoing work our Pastor's ministry encompasses. This started in the year 1983. The first "This Is Your Life" was in recognition of the late Elder Glanton. This year distinction is in honor of four faithful members Marcus and Mario Jones & Jeannetta and Jene' Miller. We also give an Erica Award to dedicated young people in memory of a beautiful young person- Erica Payne, and the honorees are Dimitri Works and Na'Jae Oliver. Our motto is "GIVE FLOWERS SO YOU CAN ENJOY THE FRAGRANCE". Tonight you all are to "Smell Your Flowers". We love you. To other members of Christian Tabernacle Church, the Moving Forward Group is watching you. Will it be you next year?
