“The mission of Peace Moravian Church is to
nourish God’s community.“
We are committed to building up the entire Body of Christ by…
(1) Providing opportunities for worship and praise for all of God’s people.
(2) Sharing the love of our Lord and Savior with our neighbors, our community, and the world through innovative ministry programs, outreach activities, and fellowship events.
(3) Nurturing and encouraging the spiritual growth of every person.
As a congregation of the oldest Protestant denomination in the world, we are firmly grounded in the historic Christian doctrines and practices. Here is some information about what we believe.
Advent is a season of preparation. This preparation is not just for a baby a long time ago, but also for Christ to come again in fulfillment of the Kingdom. Our preparation at Peace Moravian is not for an event a long time in the past or way far ahead. Our preparation is for “new life” in the coming year. Our preparation is for God to direct our way. Our focus during this Advent season will be to prepare our minds and hearts for a new life as a community of faith. We prepare our hearts and minds so that when the possibilities appear, we will be ready to recognize and respond. How will you prepare during this season for the coming of Christ? How will you make a way for the Savior to direct your way? May this season of Advent be the beginning of a blessed new year in your walk with Christ, both individually and together as a community of faith.
“Into the Way of Peace”
This Sunday introduces John the Baptist. First comes the prophesy of his father Zechariah who was a priest in the house of the Lord. Even though he was a religious man who was charged with caring for the holiest of places in the temple, he had never experienced the presence of God. Religion had become his faith, rather than a way of leading him into God’s presence. When the presence of God came in the form of the angel Gabriel, Zechariah could not see it. There were too many things in his way. What blocks your vision of these possibilities? Where is the mountain too high or the valley too low? Where is the path too crooked or too rough? God is preparing the way for us. He is guiding our feet into the way of peace. Let’s allow God to clear the way and direct our way to him.
