Our Mission

Mt. Tabor’s mission is to live in relationship with God and one another.

God’s purpose for us is to be a transforming community of churches sharing the Light of Christ with the world.

Our Vision

In our common life we:

– Demonstrate what God intends for all humanity by living together in unity, forgiveness, and reconciliation;

– Show the new reality revealed in Jesus Christ sharing together in God’s mission of proclamation and service;

– Acknowledge differences while living out “good hope for all.”

Our Goals

Our priorities as we live into our mission and vision are to:

– Identify, encourage, develop, and empower gifts for leadership and ministry at all levels of the Church;

– Call, ordain, and commission people to use their spiritual gifts for particular missions and ministries;

– Form provisional structures that enable people to use their gifts and are respectful of the resources God has given the Presbytery;

– Develop and use church clusters to build relationships for worship, study, fellowship, support, witness, service, and social justice.

Faith Formation

Faith Formation is the lifelong process by which our faith grows, nurturing each individual and our Mt. Tabor community so our lives may reflect our beliefs, trust, and love of God. This committee is tasked with providing opportunities to develop a deepening relationship with God. The focus is spiritual growth through lifelong learning as we strive to develop our hearts and minds for discipleship. This vision is to strengthen and encourage our ability to faithfully and lovingly live in relationship with God and one another.
