Join us on Sunday, November 13th 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.
There will be a Spaghetti Supper on Saturday, November 19, 2022, from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm at the Fellowship Building. Cost is $10 for adults and $5 for children 5 and under. All proceeds will go to the Outreach Fund which is used to help those in need in the church and the neighborhood.

In observance of the Memorial Day Holiday, our Church Office will be closed on Monday. We thank those who have given their lives in service to our great country and for those who continue to protect our freedoms serving in our armed forces. Remembering these words from our Liturgy for National Occasions (Moravian Book of Worship, pg. 141):
Make of this nation an instrument for the promotion of peace, freedom, and righteousness. May it be a haven for the oppressed of other lands, a home of happiness for all who dwell within its borders; and may our commitment to liberty and justice for all be preserved for the generations to come. Hear us, gracious Lord and God.
