Christmas Eve Service
December 24 4:30 PM
to be livestreamed on Facebook and YouTube
The North Carolina COVID-19 County Alert System, as updated on December 8, now shows Forsyth County to be designated a red county indicating critical community spread of COVID-19. Due to serious concerns about the rise in cases, the Mount Tabor Re-Entry Committee has made the difficult decision to suspend all in-person worship services for now. The Sunday 11 a.m. Ignite worship service will now be live-streamed without a congregation, and the Christmas Eve worship will be changed to one live-stream service without a congregation on Dec. 24 at 4:30 p.m. The pre-recorded Traditional and Higher Ground Services will continue to be available online. Everyone is encouraged to take advantage of these opportunities to worship from wherever they are.
The Re-Entry Committee did not make this decision lightly, asking God for His guidance and direction. We understand that there will be disappointment in this decision but we feel this is in the best interest of all, especially the most vulnerable among us, as we seek to love our neighbors, show social responsibility, and in John Wesley's words: "Do no harm." We step back now so that we may ultimately step forward. Thank you for your understanding and support as we navigate this evolving situation. Please pray for all those impacted by COVID-19. These are challenging times but in this Season of Advent we are reminded that God is with us and we are people of hope. The ministry of the church continues, the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
