Dear Alumnus:

Greetings in Jesus’ name!  I trust that you are doing well and enjoying the blessings of the Lord.  Annual Alumni Days will be taking place soon at Tabernacle Baptist Church for Tabernacle Baptist College graduates!  Please make a note of the dates for this year (see detailed schedule below).

This year, we will begin on Monday, March 4th.  We will begin the preaching at 2:00 and go until 5:30 p.m.  At 5:30 p.m., we will have a meal in the cafeteria provided by the church.  Everyone is invited to come and eat with us.  The Monday evening service is at 7:00 p.m.  As usual, we will be calling preachers from the floor throughout Alumni Days—so, come prepared to preach!

On Tuesday, March 5th, preaching begins at 9:00 a.m. and continues to 12 noon.  Following a lunch break, preaching resumes at 2:00 p.m. and continues to 5:00 p.m., at which time there will be a business meeting in the chapel.  We will also have a separate meeting for the ladies on Tuesday afternoon.  Then, at 5:30 p.m., we will have our Annual Alumni Banquet for Alumni and all graduating seniors.  We will, of course, finish the day with the 7:00 p.m. service.

Wednesday, March 6th, will feature more preaching from our alumni, from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon.

Please note: The college will offer ONE free night of lodging as we normally do.  To make reservations, please contact Bro. Hobart Stephens by email at, or by phone at 864-269-2760, ext. 219, and he will make the arrangements.

As always, we encourage our Alumni to support Tabernacle Baptist College and the Alumni Association with your prayers and financial support.  We want to keep in touch with our graduates as much as possible.  If you know any graduates who are not in regular contact with us, please let us know (and give us their contact information).  Feel free to make copies of this letter, and forward them on to other graduates who still need to be informed.

God bless, and we hope to see you this coming March!
