Join us for A Journey Through Advent
Through the work of the Interprovincial Board of Communion, the Board of Cooperative Ministries, and Moravian Church Without Walls, there are several opportunities to gather for reading services during Advent. These services will be held on Monday evenings at 7PM on Zoom. The link will be available at moravianchristmas.org. The dates are November 30, December 7, 14, 21 and January 4. I hope you will take the opportunity to connect the Moravians across North America to celebrate Advent and prepare for the coming of the Prince of Peace. On Tuesday nights through Advent, Pastor Rebecca will be leading a group devotional on a program that was developed by the Racial Justice Task Force. This devotional is called “A New Way of Being” and will uphold stories of Moravian siblings and racial injustice. We will gather at 7:30PM December 1, 8, 15, and 22 for these gatherings. If you are not able to make this time, the same study will be offered by the Province on Wednesday nights at 7PM. If you need the link for either or these gatherings, please contact Pastor Rebecca.
Temporary COVID-19 Office Hours:

"I entreat masters to live a good life and faithfully to instruct their scholars, especially that they may love God and learn to give themselves to knowledge in order to promote [God's] honour, the welfare of the state, and their own salvation, but not for the sake of avarice or the praise of man."
