Full Gospel Tabernacle reviews
I'm not a regular church goer but I prefer to attend services that are uplifting. Bishop Green and his congregation were welcoming and the service was soulful. I'm so grateful for the experience. more »
What an incredible experience. We went early so benefited from 2 services and 2 choirs. Al Green was great! more »
TURN OFF YOUR CELLPHONES when you’re in a church, people. They went off three times - and one clueless lady just let her tropical ringtone keep going... amplified with church acoustics. So disrespectful. The service we attended was very joyous in tone (no homophobic messages) and warm and welcoming to outside visitors. The band - with guitar, bass, drums, organ and piano - is amazing. One of the female solo singers was a great blues/soul singer. My husband and I are musicians and not particularly religious. Al Green was in really good spirits until the cell phones. But be prepared that 1) the service can take 2.5 hours and you can’t get up and leave, there’s no break (but we thought the time flew by.) 2) do NOT use flash photography and maybe just try to be in the moment and don’t photograph at all. 3) this is a Sunday sermon for the local parish where local events will be addressed - the focus is not to be a tourist attraction. 4) other pastors will be leading the service for the first half before Al Green begins to talk (and sing!) Show respect, set aside ample time, turn off your phones, and have a really cool and uplifting experience.
I can't express the feeling of love and light this service brought to me. Bishop Al Green is a powerful messenger. The band and choir make such heavenly noise. A lovely church, truly welcoming visitors from every walk of life.
