“To learn, live and share
the love of Jesus Christ”
(our mission statement and core value!)
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.

CANDLE TRIM…Whether Moravian or not, come and be a part of our annual “candle trim,” the applying of the red paper trim to our beautiful Lovefeast candles. Bring a plate of snack goodies to share and come to the Fellowship Hall at 6:00 p.m. No experience necessary to participate…instruction supplied, and anyone can do it.

Our annual Christmas Bazaar & Candle Tea Service will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall. This year, we will have a change in format for the Bazaar.

Mark your calendars, gather your friends, and come experience the fun of shopping at the Peace Moravian Church annual Christmas Bazaar!
BOOK REVIEW & DISCUSSION…Join in discussing the book “Not a Silent Night…Mary Looks Back to Bethlehem” by Adam Hamilton. Imagine Jesus from Mary’s point of view…proud of her son, in awe of his gifts and mission, guided by love for him as a person, and so much more. In this book, Hamilton begins at the end, with Mary at the crucifixion and resurrection, travels back in time as she witnesses his life and ministry, and ends at the beginning, with the Christ child born in a stable…Mary’s beautiful baby! Order your book from Amazon, read the 132 pages at your leisure, and join in an evening of wondering what the night Jesus was born was like. Join in the discussion around the Chrismon Tree at Peace Moravian on Monday, December 8, 2014, at 7:00 p.m. Please inform Joyce Vance (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are planning on joining in the discussion or require additional information.
PRAYER SHAWL MINISTRY GROUP…if you like to knit or crochet, come and join the Prayer Shawl Ministry Group as they gather to make prayer shawls and send them forward drenched in prayer. Shawls are made to the approximate dimensions of 18 by 72 inches. No experience is necessary to join the group. If you would like more information about the group and its meeting time and place, contact Charlotte Snyder at 704-488-4006 or email@example.com.
