Safe Sanctuary Policy

safesanctuarySafe Sanctuary Policy of Christ Moravian Church

As mandated by our Synod of 2014, Christ Moravian Church has adopted and is in the process of implementing our Safe Sanctuary Policy. Our Southern Province desires that children, youth, and adults experience the abiding love of God and fellowship within the community of faith. Each congregation has been mandated to create policies that seek to protect the well being of children, youth and vulnerable adults in their care and the personnel who work with them in the ministries of the church. The adoption and implementation of such policies and procedures are important steps to ensure safety and well being along with reducing risk to children, youth, vulnerable adults, members of churches, churches, provincial boards and agencies. We now have a policy  that will help ensure that children, youth and vulnerable adults are not placed at risk, and that our church, and Leadership Board do not face undesirable legal liabilities.

Children’s Festival Lovefeast this Sunday

World Mission Lovefeast Sunday, November 2nd 3 PM

Children’s Lovefeast Sunday @ 11 AM

Join us for worship this Sunday as we celebrate a special Lovefeast service at 11 AM. Following the August 13th spiritual renewal of 1727, the children of the Moravian settlement of Herrnhut had a similar awakening. The late Bishop Kenneth G. Hamilton wrote in his book, History of the Moravian Church the following:

The whole experience can be attributed…to the keen interest taken in the spiritual development of their children by the leaders of Herrnhut, Zinzendorf in chief. These men and women did not regard inner life of the young with that condescension too often shown by adults. They held that in the things of the spirit, the Lord could use a little child to lead elder persons.
