The Ministries of All at Mount Tabor

Mount Tabor's members are very active in both financial and volunteer support to local, national and worldwide charitable organizations. This support is broad-based and encompasses youth and campus ministry, hunger and housing programs. Tabor's lay-leadership and volunteerism is strong -- not many pew-sitters here!

Stewardship of All Things
At Mount Tabor we consider our Stewardship throughout the year.  Each quarter we focus on one aspect of how we care for important areas of our lives. We present opportunities for learning and renew our commitment to our Environment, our offerings of Time, Talent and Finances, and our Spiritual Journey of study, prayer and reflection.

Communications and Outreach
 
 Council Representative: Steven Sue

Mount Tabor seeks to make our church a welcoming place for all!


As of community of people of God, we are called to minister to all people of our world, knowing that the world is often an unloving place. Our world is a place of alienation and brokenness. Christ calls us to reconciliation of healing within our society.

Worship & Music
Choir Director: Harry Heightman

Council Representative:  Lee Kreutzer

Music holds a significant and important place in worship at Mount Tabor Lutheran Church. The choir is the core ensemble at the church, providing choral anthems and other special music from September to May of each year. In addition to many members with special instrumental and vocal talents, Tabor has been blessed with an outstanding organist, Gordon Smith, who for over 40 years provides a special gift each Sunday to our worship services.  Starting in 2007, Tabor uses the newly published Evangelical Lutheran Worship book for its liturgy and hymnal.
