Fifth Sunday in Lent
MESSAGE FROM PASTOR LIZ


We continue our journey with Jesus as he makes his way to Jerusalem. Sunday’s sermon focused on the importance of developing our “kingdom eyes.” 

Here is an excerpt in case you missed worship on Sunday: 

Determinism is the doctrine that all events, including human action, are ultimately determined by causes external to the will. There is so much that we can’t control. We can’t help how we came into the world, our gender, our particular parents, our DNA. The tulips will break open, bloom, then submit to the wind, or deer. The universe will continue to expand, and more rapidly. What goes up must come down. 
 
And. The Gospel offers a way out of determinism. We are not JUST our DNA, our experiences, and where they lead us. We can be born anew to see more than determinism.

“Kingdom eyes” see power where others see weakness. “Kingdom eyes” see hope where other eyes see the end of the road. “Kingdom eyes” see the value in an enemy. “Kingdom eyes” see beauty in simplicity and humility; “kingdom eyes” see the futility of hoarding, dividing or disrespecting any of God’s good creation.

This Sunday we will meet Jesus at the well, with a Samaritan woman, who, like us, thirsts for the kin-dom.

We will exercise great caution in worship, making sure hand sanitizer is available for everyone!


LENTEN DEVOTIONS
Each week, we will be sharing Lenten devotions focusing on "Letting Go." The devotions run Sunday through Saturday. Next week's theme is Letting Go of Empty Words and Holding on to Wisdom. The devotions are authored by Jill Duffield, the editor of Presbyterian Outlook. 
.  Go to our News page to read the devotional and download your own copy!
Tabor Church will be closed until April 1st.  All events  or activities are also cancelled until further notice.
Dear Friends,

As you all know, our church services and other in-person activities have been suspended for an unknown length of time. This is a severe blow to our community’s fellowship and also to our congregation’s finances. In any given month it costs at least $10,000 (sometimes more) to fund Tabor’s expenses. While we are not worshiping together our usual offering opportunity doesn’t occur, although the ongoing expenses of keeping our church open continue.

There are several ways to make sure that Tabor is supported. First, you can mail your pledge or offering to the church at 5804 Tabor St, Crozet, VA 22932. Or, you can make online payments through your bank. I pay all of my bills this way and just completed setting up an ongoing monthly deposit to the church. Lastly, we are setting up a mechanism for online giving which should be up and running shortly. More details will follow.  

It is critical that we continue to assure the financial health if our church in this difficult time. Please do everything you can to make it happen.

Thank you,
Cindy Bowers, Chair, Finance Committee


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.
