Worship is at the heart of who we are. Join us in person in our beautiful sanctuary or on Facebook live at 10:00 am every Sunday.
Whether you are a lifelong Lutheran, seeker from another tradition, or have never set foot in a church, we welcome you. Tabor is a Christian congregation in the Lutheran tradition, which means that our worship generally follows a standard liturgical format that includes prayer, scripture readings, congregational singing, a homily, and, most Sundays, Holy Communion. A variety of sacred music is important to us so you will sometimes encounter a more traditional worship and music style and other times a lighter/more contemporary style. Our services are typically about an hour long and, on your way into the sanctuary, you will receive a bulletin to guide you through the service. The red book in the pew includes the hymns and liturgy that make up the service. Most people dress “business casual”, but what you wear is not as important as where your heart is, so feel free to "come as you are". We invite all who are baptized to receive communion (both the bread and the wine). Gluten free wafers and grape juice are available. There is plenty of parking available in our lot.
If you are unable to join us for Sunday worship in person, check us out online on our Facebook or YouTube pages! (links at the very bottom of this page)
Music is an integral part of what makes worship at Tabor special. Our music program is under the leadership, vision, and accompaniment of Charles (Chuck) Stack, Director of Music. Our programs include Adult Choir, Praise Band, and Handbell Choir. Along with many visiting performers, including Harpeggio Harp Ensemble; Trinity Boys Choir of New Haven; and featured New Haven Symphony musicians, to name a few, these talented groups fill our worship space with extraordinary and uplifting music. It is not only a pleasure to participate (and all are welcome to do so) it is a joy to bear witness to the special music we present.
Our beautiful sanctuary is complemented by the natural beauty that surrounds the church. Shaded by oak trees, with a view of our steeple and bell tower in front of us, the Branford river and the Tabor cemetery to the side of us, and the red tail hawks and osprey occasionally passing overhead, we sometimes opt to worship outdoors in the summer months.
