Holy Communion Worship at 10:30 AM

Welcome to God's Round Table!

At Mount Tabor we believe that living God's love begins with the open invitation to all people to join us at the Meal that is central to our worship life.

Inclusive, unconditional love meets us where Christ gives himself freely to us. In the Meal of holy communion, we remember and celebrate Jesus' sacrificial love that empowers our serving in the world.
For us, "grace" means that God meets us just as we are with joy and new life. This is why we worship God together every week.

The Spirit of God has made an open invitation to meet us every week in this special way, in the Meal of grace. All are invited. All are welcome: young and old, doubters and believers, seekers and disciples. Our diversity at the Meal reflects the beauty of our Creator's wisdom.

Come celebrate with us, and be empowered by God's love for justice, peace, and community!

Our hearts go out to all those affected by the devastation brought by the recent storms.  Please join me in praying for God's sustaining presence with the people and animals who are suffering.

God, Our Safety and Strength, hear our prayers this day for all suffering the destruction from Tropical Storm Harvey. Come to the aid of all experiencing devastating flooding and give skill and courage to emergency responders. Ease the rainfall that continues to threaten and direct those coordinating rescue and relief efforts. Stir up abundant support from those who watch the rising waters from afar. We ask this in the name of Jesus, who walked amid the storm and the Spirit who never leaves or forsakes us. Amen.
Lutheran Disaster Response Alert - Hurricane Harvey Relief
Hurricane Harvey, one of the most powerful storms to hit the United States made landfall recently, threatening millions in Texas and Louisiana with heavy rain, wind and rising tides. We have an opportunity to accompany our neighbors during and after this disaster, in Jesus Christ’s name.

Your gifts are needed now to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. Your support through Lutheran Disaster Response will bring hope and healing to those who have been or will be affected by this hurricane. Lutheran Disaster Response is already collaborating with our affiliates to initiate recovery efforts.

While the storm is not over, you can help now. Gifts designated for “Hurricane Response – United States” will be used in full until the response is complete to help disaster survivors recover and rebuild.

Human Rights Social Message - We Want to Hear From You!

The draft of a social message on human rights is now available for comments at ELCA.org.

Social messages provide a framework for conversation and guidance for ministries in the church about pressing matters of social concern. Human rights touch many aspects of church and society - the social message draft endeavors to help us think through a Lutheran understanding of what human rights are, how we can use them to best care for our neighbor, and where our church stands on relevant issues.

Craig's Journey

Craig Thompson has been being treated for Metastatic Prostate Cancer for 4 years. It goes without saying this has been a tough battle but one that he has taken in stride and with a fighting spirit. Until recently, Craig was working as a nurse for the Salt Lake County Jail, a job that he loves and proudly holds dear. We are especially proud of the hard work and efforts he put forth to earn his nursing degree from the University of Utah while simultaneously being a stay at home father and husband. In order to continue his fight he had to place his health at the forefront and is currently on medical leave, with strong hope and desire to return to the field of medicine and continue to serve our community.  Visit Craig's GoFundMe page>>

Connecting faith and public life 
As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor.  God uses our hands, through our direct service work and our voices, through our advocacy efforts, to restore and reconcile our world.  Through faithful advocacy, the ELCA lives out our Luthern belief that governments can help advance the common good.

ELCA advocacy works for change in public policy based on the experience of Lutheran ministries, programs and projects around the world and in communities across the United States. We work through political channels on behalf of the following biblical values: peacemaking, hospitality to strangers, care for creation, and concern for people living in poverty and struggling with hunger and disease. 

Join a growing movement 
Together, we achieve things on a scale and scope that we could never do otherwise. When we act as a coordinated network of advocates and reach out to officials on relevant, timely issues, we effectively impact public policies. Read more
