Seventh Sunday of Easter
Tabor Church will be closed until the Governor lifts the ban and Tabor feels it is safe. All events/activities are also cancelled/postponed until further notice.
Support Tabor Church with your Offerings and Tithes online!
During these trying times, giving to support Tabor has become more difficult as we are not in church each Sunday. Tabor still needs your gifts to maintain operations and pay our bills. We now have a way for you to give from home using our secure online service Tithe.ly. Press the "Give" button above and you can send your tithe to Tabor from the comfort and safety of your home. You can choose to give to the General Fund or the Building Fund.
There are a few things to consider when giving online:
Fees - Giving online costs the church 3%. So, if you’re already giving, the church would receive less of your gift if you went digital. If giving online is just a better fit for you, there’s a box you can check to cover the fees. This adds the 3% on top of your gift so the church still receives all of what you intended to give.
Recurring Gifts – If you wish to set up your tithe on a recurring basis (i.e. each week)then you can check a box selecting a schedule.
Credit Cards – This online platform gives users the option to give by credit card or from their bank account. With credit cards comes the possibility that people will take on debt to give. Please don’t! If you choose to use your credit card to take advantage of rewards programs or for some other reason, please make sure you’re not giving money you don’t have.
Would you like to add someone to our prayer list? You do not need to be a member of Tabor to do so! The Tabor community would love to add your requests to our weekly prayer list and include them in our thoughts and prayers. Please type in the box below, then click submit request and they will be added!
Unless instructed otherwise, names will be removed from the prayer list after four weeks. To preserve the confidentiality of those on Tabor's prayer list, it is not posted on Facebook or on our web site. It is only distributed to the members of Tabor on our email list.
Does God really have favorites among his children? What an unhappy family that would create - and indeed, it has created.

We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.

Dear Tabor Family,
Please pray for my dear friend and elder at Orange Presbyterian, Pat Stewart, who has COVID-19 and is now on a ventilator. Please continue to pray for Linda, who lost her husband unexpectedly. Please return again and again to our prayer list, which often gets updated multiple times a week; if you have joys or concerns, or need someone added to our prayer list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thanks to Anita Olinga, for contributing to today’s service with an update from her time in NYC; for Nicholas, serving as liturgist; Nayla, Robin and Molly for beautiful music from our sanctuary; Dianne Vitt with a kin-dom story; and Diane Lewis for leading us to another version of a beautiful benediction. May the words of blessing carry us through our hours and days. May we release our “negatives” as much as we are able.
Thanks for those who signed up on our doodle survey. Here is the link, if you are able to film a very short video from your home. PLEASE NOTE that you do NOT need an account to sign up for this! There are a number of distracting ads on this page. Just select your preferred time and insert your name. I will string these videos together so we can actually see Tabor families on Pentecost! It is the birthday of the church!
