A Growing Church
Due to the growing needs of the church congregation and the unavailability of the school's chapel during needed church times the congregation actively sought a permanent location. In 2001 the church acquired property at 16900 West Chicago and moved to the facility in March 2001. Reverend Daryl Redmond officiated at the opening service and dedication of the new home of Shekinah Tabernacle Gospel Church. As the church grew, it began to establish itself as a recognized organization in the community. Since its move to the 16900 W. Chicago location the church has sponsored many activities in the community such as; community picnics, holiday food baskets to the community, health fairs, a community computer usage program, healthy eating programs and support for those seeking jobs.
