The United Methodist Church at Mount Tabor is a community of faith-filled friends who seek to grow closer to God through the ministry of Jesus Christ, and by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.  We celebrate the history of Mount Tabor, and look with hope toward the future.  Everyone is welcome here; everyone is cherished here; for everyone is a child of God.  All are welcome to participate with us in our journey of faith, regardless of background, theological stance, or personal characteristics.  We rejoice in God creating us to be a diverse family; and we strive to follow the Spirit’s leading as one, while maintaining and upholding our individuality.  Because of the current official stance of The United Methodist Church, we feel it is important to state a welcome to those of all sexual orientations and gender identities – You are welcome here.  God loves you just the way you are; and so do we.
