We’re thankful for our 110 year history in the Albany Park neighborhood of Chicago, and we’re excited to engage in a historic movement to love God and people more deeply. We’ve partnered with four other Lutheran churches in Chicago to revitalize our churches and serve our neighborhoods.
Tabor Lutheran Church is a work in progress filled with broken, yet redeemed people who are interested in doing life together to share joys, heartaches, and everyday life. We’d love for you to be part of our community as we learn what it means to love God, love people, and allow Him to transform us as we do life together.
Worship is central to the Christian life. We believe that worship is both a gift and a response. First, we receive God’s gifts in his word, in bread and wine (communion), and in water (baptism). We then respond with prayer, praise, and thanksgiving. Beyond formal worship, we respond by worshiping with our whole lives in service, love, work, and witness. What we do in one hour on Sunday, we carry into the other 167 hours a week.
Our church is a part of the Northern Illinois District of the Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS). We strive to proclaim the Gospel message of the risen Savior, Jesus Christ and to serve our community and our world.

Yes!! Absolutely everyone is welcome to church. Jesus wants a relationship with all of His children, and we want to be in this transformational relationship with you.
Come as you are. Everyone at our church dresses differently; some wear jeans or shorts, while others dress up a little more. It is really up to you. We are in the soul business, not the church fashion business!
We welcome children of all ages to our worship services. Please sit wherever you’re comfortable. Sometimes kids like to be in the front where the action is, and sometimes the back feels better for the family. Whatever you choose is great! During the pastor's message, there is an area in the back of the church that has a few activities for the kids to do while mom or dad can also listen to the message. There is also a cry room available for nursing mothers, changing station, or babies who need a little extra time in quite. This is located out of the sanctuary up the stairs to the left. Please ask a greeter if you need help.
