The Gift that keeps on Giving!
Online Giving now available using our secure service Tithe.ly!
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 have set up online giving using the secure service Tithe.ly.

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

OPPORTUNITIES FOR OUTREACH
1. Thank you for supporting the "Period Poverty" outreach, to help supply feminine hygiene products to local women in need! Pastor Liz has made several trips to deliver donations, which have been gratefully received. Pastor Liz will continue to deliver feminine hygiene products as long as we receive them. You may drop off donations in the plastic, covered bin by the side door of Tabor, near the parking lot. 
2. Let’s partner with Crozet Baptist Church in their annual Share the Blessing, which has provided Thanksgiving dinner groceries to local families in need for over 20 years.

Crozet Baptist Church collects food to distribute before the Thanksgiving holiday and fills any shortfalls by using cash donations. The groceries are packed together and families pick up their food the Saturday before Thanksgiving.

Because of the pandemic and the financial stress it has caused, the anticipated need for assistance is even greater this year than in previous years. You can sign up to help during the food drive, to help pack the groceries, or help distribute the meals -- or a combination!

Please sign up on the signup genius form so that the organizers can ensure proper social distancing guidelines! Volunteers will wear masks the entire time.

If you are unable to volunteer in-person, you can drop of a monetary donation (cash or check), or the following foods at Crozet Baptist Church: 
Turkey
Gravy
Stuffing
Mac N Cheese
Green Beans
Cranberry Sauce 
Frozen Pie


3. A local family is in need of a car -- the mom was in a bad car accident over the weekend. Thankfully, she was not badly injured, but their car was totaled. Now she is staying with family in Charlottesville so she can get to work, and the kids are in Crozet with grandparents. If you know of anybody with a decent, inexpensive car for sale, please email office.tabor@gmail.com and we will try to help this mother get to work and the family back together. 
If you’re interested in joining our group, we meet every Tuesday from 1:00 to 2:15 by zoom, starting next Tuesday. Let us know!
Save-the-Date

Tabor Presbyterian and the Rumi Forum are partnering again! The Rumi Forum and Tabor Presbyterian are hosting a virtual (zoom) Abraham’s Table panel discussion on Wednesday, January 13 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. We will bring together two panelists from each of the three Abrahamic faith traditions.

Last year we gathered together at Tabor for an Iftar Dinner, where people from both communities as well as people who heard about it through publicity broke bread together and learned about Ramadan. It was so successful that we were poised to organize something else, but got delayed due to the pandemic. We’ve reconfigured our expectations and hope that a virtual meeting will nevertheless allow for community-building and education.
