Tabor Church's story is a rich one, filled with over 125 years of ministry to people who live in the shoreline communities of South Central Connecticut. As the pages of this Website attest, Tabor is a wonderful, unique place. We are named after a mountain in the Holy Land where, tradition has it, the Transfiguration of Christ occurred. Even as Jesus was transformed in the light of God before his disciples on Mount Tabor, God transforms individuals at Tabor Church through God's Word and the Sacraments and through a loving, supportive community. Our witness to Christ includes diverse ministry programs and community activities. We're a church on the move! Our community programs range from the Tabor Christian Community Preschool and the new Tabor Arts Branford. Tabor Church proclaims God's love as FUN: Forever, Unconditional and Nurturing. We strive to serve rather than to be served. These pages only begin to introduce the vibrant life of Tabor Church. To learn more about us, come visit us in person, just east of the Branford Green off Route 146. We're eager to meet you. God bless!
