Fresh New Look, Now Needing a New Name!
Have you had an opportunity to check out the newly renovated “Ladies Parlor” off the Commons-Area? After 30 years, this room needed a makeover, not only in its furnishings and decor, but also in how it functions in our church. The new look of the room was chosen specifically to reflect how the room is used today and how it will be used in the future. These uses include, but aren’t limited to, the following:
• After-Service Visitor Coffees
• Small Gatherings/Receptions
• Lovefeast Diener Preparations
• Ladies Tea
• Between Worship Service Fellowship
• Committee Meetings
• Bible Studies
• Family Funeral Gathering
• Brides/Bridesmaids Dressing
• Alternative Space to View Worship Service
With all these activities, this room has now become a “church-wide” space (versus in the past more of “women’s meeting space”), and as such needs a name that reflects better how it is used and functions in our church.
The Connections Committee would love your help in naming the new space! If you have a suggestion or thought around a new, visitor friendly, easy to remember name for our fresh new space, please let us know; associating the name with Moravian heritage is an idea but not required. We want the new name to be one folks (even those who are not Moravian) can quickly recall!
There will be a box for your suggestions located in the room or you can submit your suggestion HERE. We look forward to your input and thought! Suggestions will be accepted through January 20th and the new name will be announced on January 27th.
Thank you, Denise, for the wonderful pictures taken during our Christmas Eve Lovefeast and Candle Services.
The Book of Acts Bible Study
You’re invited (men and women) to a Bible Study on October 1, 8, 15, 22, 29 and November 5 at 10:30 a.m. or 6:30 p.m., your choice; the study will be held in the banquet room (morning session) and in the conference room (evening session).
We will be studying the first seven chapters in the book of Acts. Mary Ruth McRae and I are so excited to bring this study to you. As part of this study, we will see our resurrected Jesus with His disciples giving them their last instructions, study the birth and growth of the early church and learn who was named to replace Judas. We will also be studying the Holy Spirit coming at Pentecost.
We hope to see you in October, you only need to bring your bible. If you have questions just give me a call – Grace Shutt – 336-408-4969
New Philadelphia, Moravian Church, all band musicians are invited! The band will meet each Wednesday from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. in the church fellowship hall (on the God’s acre side of the church) June 6 through August 29. We will play chorales from the green and blue books that are selected by the players. A different local band leader will direct each night. This is a great opportunity to meet new players, learn a new instrument or part, and keep those lips in shape over the summer.
