Called into mission by God, trusting in Jesus Christ as our savior and example, and empowered by the Holy Spirit, together we use our diverse gifts to provide inspiration for living, motivation for sharing, and opportunities for serving Christ's church in the world.
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.
Worship Service Information
Sunday, March 7, 2021
Third Sunday in Lent
We will be worshiping by ZOOM at 10:30 a.m. -- please join us!
We will begin with Time with Youth service at 10:20 a.m., and will run for five or six minutes. Our regular worship service will proceed at 10:30 a.m.!
The session of Tabor Presbyterian Church has called a Congregational Meeting directly after zoom worship on Sunday, March 7 for the purpose of receiving the 2021 budget and voting on the terms of call for Rev. Liz Hulme Adam.
If you do not join us by zoom for worship, you can call in to the meeting by using the phone number from the zoom invitation.
Tabor takes up two collections a year for the larger church - one at Christmas and one at Easter. Save your PCUSA envelopes for Easter and these will be collected together and bundled for a single contribution from our church. Putting them in Lent bags was easier than mailing them!
Office Hours are by appointment only and with proper CDC regulations in place, masks must be worn and social distance must be observed.
If you need to come to the office for any reason, please call or email to make arrangements.
Statement Against Racism
Two committees of the Presbytery of the James, The Dismantling Racism Ministry and the Communication and Coordination Team, this summer, invited individuals and churches in the Presbytery to sign this “Statement Against Racism."
The Session of Tabor Presbyterian Church unanimously endorsed this Statement, as we commit to the longstanding work of ending white supremacy.
Please click on the PDF to read the entire statement.
I invite each of you to come by the church between 4 and 10pm each day to see the cross in our window of the Fellowship Hall. I have it lit up and I hope it will help you prepare for our Easter season.
Since we are not in the church building this year, I have planned on a way to flower the cross that will be safe for each of us.
On April 3rd from 11 to 3pm, I will be in the Fellowship Hall wearing a mask, as I invite each of you to do, to greet you and give you flowers to flower the cross for all to see.
Reminders will be in each newsletter through the month of March.
