Come Gather, Grow and Go with Mount Tabor UMC!
We are blessed that you are considering worshiping with us on Sunday morning. It is our hope that you will feel truly welcomed at Mount Tabor, and that in some way you will experience the very real love and presence of the living God through our worship together.
We all experience worship in different ways, and typically, Mount Tabor offers three distinctly different worship services.
Higher Ground Contemporary Worship
9:00 AM in the Alspaugh Worship Center
Ignite Contemporary Worship
11:00 AM in the Alspaugh Worship Center
11:00 AM in the Sanctuary
During this time of physical and social distancing, we are finding new and creative ways to worship together. Until we are all able to gather in person, we invite you to join us for our current worship service schedule below:
In-Person Worship Services:
Traditional Service Sunday mornings at 9 AM
Ignite Service Sunday Mornings at 11 AM*
*masks required, limited socially distant seating
Online Worship Services**:
Traditional Service livestreams Sunday mornings at 9 AM
Higher Ground Contemporary Service 9 AM
Ignite Service livestream Sunday Mornings at 11 AM
**Times above are when the Worship Service recordings are made available. However, you may worship anytime!
What should I wear?
This is a "come as you are" kind of place, so whatever you are comfortable wearing is perfectly fine. Whatever you wear, we are blessed that you come to worship.
Is there a nursery, or care for children?
The Nursery is for infants through Preschoolers. The nursery is available from 8:45 am to noon on Sunday mornings and other varied times as needed. Our church community recognizes the importance of the environment you desire for your child during worship. Our nursery is staffed by paid caregivers who have undergone background checks and provide consistent and loving care of your children as well as volunteers. Silent pagers are provided for parents and a check in system is in place.
In addition, Mount Tabor offers TaborKIDS Worship during all of our worship services. TaborKIDS Worship will include all the same elements – prayer, music, sermon, etc., but will be geared specifically to them. Children (4 years – 2nd grade) are invited to participate and will be called to follow the TaborKIDS Worship Leader during the service.
Where is the church located, and where do I go when I get there?
We are located at 3543 Robinhood Road in Winston Salem, and there are 3 entrances off Robinhood Road that will bring you in to the church. We recommend that you enter and exit at the traffic light. When you enter that way, you'll see Guest Parking straight ahead -- we've reserved a spot for you!
The first place you'll want to go is our Welcome Center. Look for the white signs on the sidewalk that will point the way. From there, volunteers will be glad to help you find the Children's Building, the Worship Spaces, and where to find bagels and coffee.
You'll find plenty of friendly faces at Mount Tabor, but look especially for our greeters wearing either yellow vests or name tags. Our team of volunteers will be happy to meet you and help you find your way.
We hope you'll stop by our Welcome Desk in our Welcome Center, where we have a special gift for you. The Welcome Desk is a great place to meet some folks and find out more about the many programs and ministries at Mount Tabor. You'll also find comfortable places to sit and chat, while enjoying a bagel and coffee in our Welcome Center.

Do you have Sunday School?
We have Sunday School classes for everyone, of every age, on every Sunday at 10:00 am. While nursery care is provided for ages 3 and younger, children ages 4 through 4th grade enjoy age and grade-level classes in our Children's Building. Parents bring the children to their class and sign them in, and then pick up their child at 10:45 am. Please stop by the desk in the lobby of our Children's Building for help finding your class.
Youth in grades 5 & 6 attend Sunday School with the GAP on the lower level of our main building. Youth in grades 7 through 12 attend Sunday School with the FUSION youth group, also on the lower level of our main building. Stop by the Welcome Desk for more information and directions.
Adults, beginning with our college-age young adults, have many different class options to choose from in various locations in our main building. Stop by the Welcome Desk where our volunteers can help you choose and find the class that's right for you.
