Holy God of Israel, ever present and moving among your people, draw us near to you, that in place of hostility there may be peace; in place of loneliness, compassion; in place of aimlessness, direction; and in place of sickness, healing; through Christ Jesus, in whom you draw near to us.

Attendance (July 11): 191
As we continue to transition into what will be a new normal for all of us, we remind you that face masks are optional for those attending worship who have been fully vaccinated but we continue to ask those who are not vaccinated to continue wearing a mask. We want to insure the safety of our church family as we move toward the time when everyone, including children, are vaccinated. We appreciate your understanding and cooperation.

Save the date for our 2021 Children’s Festival and Lovefeast highlighting St. Philips Moravian Church. Beginning on August 1, 2021, children and adults alike will be able to immerse themselves in an interactive online experience of St. Philips rich history. Using this platform, families can go at their own pace to learn about St. Philips, the oldest African American Moravian congregation in the United States, originally located within Salem.
In addition to the online experience, the Children & Family Task Force of the Board of Cooperative Ministries will distribute “grab bags” to each church to give out to families that will enable all to more fully participate in the Festival activities, which include:
Special, one-of-a-kind coloring book with crayons
Supplies to create a unique piece for the commemorative archival addition
Story and Stretch Video
Fireside Book Chat
Godly Play Story about Martin Luther King Jr.
Children's Festival mugs and cookies to enjoy during the lovefeast service
PLUS MUCH MORE!
A livestreamed lovefeast will conclude the unique event on Sunday, August 15, 2021 at 4:00- 5:00 PM ET from St. Philips Moravian Church. (Link will be posted on
in August.) Gather the lovefeast supplies from your grab bag, or whatever you have at home (juice box, milk, cookies, or bun) and watch the service with children from across the Southern Province and beyond!
