Pastor Mike Haun and the congregation of Tabernacle Baptist Church believe in supporting the work of Christian missions. To name just one, they sponsor a Bible distribution and teaching ministry in Papua, New Guinea conducted by the Jason Brewer missionary family, originally of Sulphur Springs, Texas. And practically in their “own back yard” is the Holy Highway Girls Home which the Tabernacle Baptist Church family joyfully assists each Spring with a Fish Fry Fundraiser.
The public is invited to enjoy an all-you-can-eat fried catfish meal complete with homemade side items, iced tea and soft drinks on Saturday May 19 from 5-7 pm. It will be held inside the Family Life Center of Tabernacle Baptist Church on FM 269 North, just off Highway 11 at Pickton. You can reserve a table seating ten for a sponsor cost of $100. Individuals and families are welcome to eat by donation. For dessert, there will be homemade cakes and pies by the slice, many prepared by Holy Highway girls. An added feature of the event is the singing and testimonies by some of the students whose lives have benefited from the caring home-like atmosphere of the residential program. For details of the fundraiser, contact Pastor Haun at 972-754-6487 or the church office at 903-866-2315.
Holy Highway Girls Home is private Christian school on a working farm which assists girls ages 12-17 to overcome rebellion, substance abuse, personal abuse and emotional frustration. A Christian school education and Bible study is facilitated through The Academy, accredited through the National Association of Private Schools. The school depends on donations and tuition to maintain quality operation expenditures.
