Children’s Festival Lovefeast August 20th

World Mission Lovefeast Sunday, November 2nd 3 PM
Children’s Lovefeast August 20th

Join us for worship on Sunday. August 20th 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.
