Prayers for Victims of Mass Shootings

candles+prayerOur sympathy and prayers are extended today to all those affected by recent mass shootings over the past few weeks in our nation. We remember those victims and families in Pennsylvania, Florida and in California. Continue to keep in your prayers those families affected by these tragic losses and individuals who were injured.  May these words from our Moravian Book of Worship offer us encouragement and strength in the days ahead:

God of mercy, God of comfort, we come before you in this time of difficulty, mindful of human frailty and need, confused and struggling to find meaning in the face of suffering.
We are grateful that even as we share in the joy of Christ Jesus, we can also share abundantly in comfort in the midst of suffering. (Intercessions in Times of Crisis)

Christ as Chief Elder Communion

Join us for Holy Communion this Sunday
The Chalice has long been a symbol of the Moravian Church

Join us this Sunday in worship on November 11th as we celebrate Christ as Chief Elder Communion. On November 13, 1741 announcement was made in all Moravian congregations that Jesus Christ had been chosen Chief Elder of the Moravian Church. The Moravian Church has had no single human chief executive since then, and now observes this as a festival day on the Sunday closest to November 13th by celebrating the Sacrament of Holy Communion.  Worship begins at 11 AM on Sunday morning. We hope to see you here! In addition, we will be holding our annual Church Council during worship this Sunday as well.
