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 12th 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!
