"We as the Rocky Mountain Synod, ELCA invite all into the fullness of God’s love.

Sunday 

Adult Forum "Faith in these Times" 9 AM

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!

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.

Advocacy

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
