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!

a word from Bishop Gonia...
As yet another tragedy related to unspeakable violence wracks our nation, I am meeting with the ELCA Conference of Bishops in Chicago. I offer for your prayerful reflection the ELCA Conference of Bishops statement on violence issued in 2013 after the shooting in Sandy Hook. It remains heartbreakingly timely.
For those in Las Vegas and all who are victims of violence in God’s beloved world, we offer our prayers with sighs too deep for words.
Lord have mercy. Christ have mercy. Lord have mercy.
