The Gift that keeps on Giving!
Online Giving now available using our secure service Tithe.ly!
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.

The Blue Ridge Health District is now collecting information through a survey on its website for persons 75 and older to indicate interest in the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccinations of this group (and others in Phase 1b) should start very soon here in Charlottesville/surrounding counties.

Rituals and routines are important for our spiritual lives, and Fred Rogers, aka Mr. Rogers understood that well. Joanne Rogers, his widow and wife of over 50 years, died last week. She was 92. If you like, see if you can memorize this prayer Mr. Rogers and his family would recite at dinner every night.
