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.

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!


UPDATES on Family Reunification
 
Church for the Life of the World: Responding to reunited families

It is with deep gratitude that we share an update on the RMS Border Emergency Fund. When we learned of additional support was needed by our ministries welcoming their neighbors, we set an initial goal to offer $10,000 of support.

As of Tuesday, August 7, the Rocky Mountain Synod has received over $19,000 in contributions to support our work on the Border. $7,500 has already been released to Cristo Rey, Peace/Border Servant Corps, and Lutheran Family Services. We are working with these ministries to assess and support on-going needs.

We also know that at least $8,000 was given directly to our Border ministries!

Thank you for your generosity, your witness, and your commitment to being Christ's Church, Better Together!


On Friday, July 20th, Lutheran Family Services Rocky Mountain was asked by Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service (LIRS) to provide emergency services to 300 immigrant families in Albuquerque, NM who were separated under the short-lived family separation policy. 

 
Overnight they organized the team in their Albuquerque office and sent additional help from their Denver office so they could begin receiving families today. They expect to receive 50 adults and children per day through July 27th. They need your help.
 
They were called upon on short notice because of their reputation in resettling refugees, expertise working with children and families who have experienced trauma. Rev. Judith VanOsdal from the Office of the Bishop as well as local Spanish-speaking clergy from the Albuquerque area, are working with LFS staff to offer pastoral care for families.
 
They are in the care of LFS for only a brief time (24-36 hours), and their staff are meeting immediate needs that include temporary housing, food, clothing, legal/health referrals, and transportation to their final destination with family and friends in the U.S.
 
This work in Albuquerque is in addition to the hospitality being offered by Cristo Rey, Peace, and Border Servant Corps in El Paso and Las Cruces.
 
Through our recently established Border Emergency Fund, the Rocky Mountain Synod Council has sent $2500 each to Peace, Las Cruces, Cristo Rey, El Paso, and Lutheran Family Services. This was made possible through your generosity! As of July 24, we have received over $11,000 in gifts to the Border Emergency Fund.
 
We also know that many congregations have sent gifts directly to these ministries. Help us tell the full story of our synod's generosity by letting us know if you are or have given directly to our partners by emailing Deacon Erin Power
 
Continued generosity is needed, either directly to LFS or to our Border fund, which will be allocated to ministries as needs emerge.

Updated information will be posted on the RMS Website or follow LFS on Facebook
