Prairie Tabernacle Congregation celebrates official opening

PTC Ribbon Cutting

The Prairie Tabernacle Congregation held their official opening ceremony on Sunday January 12th for their newly constructed church building, an event which had been postponed from the Fall due to lagging occupancy permits.

Associate Pastor Glenn Flewelling MC’d the event, long-time charter member Jean Boswell provided musical accompaniment, architect Rod Crocker was in attendance to see the project to completion, Pastor Emeritus Dr. Ted Rendall sent his remarks, Battle River-Crowfoot Member of Parliament Damien Kurek and Three Hills Town Mayor Tim Shearlaw were on hand to provide remarks. Three Hills Dance Celebration presented their “Revival Anthem”, led by Ashley Savage, an example of the kind of events the church hopes make itself available for, in service to the community. Associate Pastor Amir Younas closed the event in a prayer of dedication.

The “Tab” held their first church service in their new building on December 19, 2019, after many years of sojourning in different facilities. The history of the Tab can be traced back to somewhere just prior to 1931 when services were held at what was the Presbyterian Church building (now the Three Hills Arts Academy). From there, the congregation met at various locations including the Miller Chapel on Prairie campus, the PBI Tabernacles (all three iterations), the PCA gymnasium, and most recently the North Auditorium on Prairie campus. This is the first time the congregation has had their own “home.”

Many thanks were given to local businesses who made this project possible. The congregation is also thankful for the numerous volunteers who contributed their time and talent for the project.
