12 Days of Service

New Philadelphia Touches Community

For the fourth consecutive year, we will touch hundreds of lives in the Winston Salem area through 12 Days of Service. This project, created for the holiday season, will carry NPMC church members and friends into homeless shelters, schools and non-profit agencies throughout the community as we seek to share the light and love of Christ. That light will shine even brighter this year as we reach out to new groups in new ways.

Saturday, December 1: On the first day of service, collect over-the-counter cold and flu medicine for Crisis Control Ministry.

Sunday, December 2: On the second day of service, enjoy an Open House and Community Christmas Tree Lighting with our neighbors.

Monday, December 3: On the third day of service, support the Salvation Army as a bell-ringer or with your donations.

Tuesday, December 4: On the fourth day of service, provide breakfast for the guests of the SECU Family House, which offers affordable lodging and support services for adult patients and/or their caregivers who travel to Winston-Salem for medical treatment.

Wednesday, December 5: On the fifth day of service, we’ll be downtown at Winston Square Park holding our first Downtown Lovefeast.

Thursday, December 6: On the sixth day of service, share a traditional lovefeast with the men of Samaritan Inn Shelter.

Friday, December 7: On the seventh day of service, welcome 100 fourth graders and staff from South Fork Elementary School to our church for a time of learning Moravian history, sharing in a lovefeast, and building a putz.

Saturday, December 8: On the eighth day of service, share the gift of music with some of our church members at home as we go Christmas caroling.

Sunday, December 9: On the ninth day of service, collect toilet paper to be given to clients at Sunnyside Ministry and diapers for the folks at North Carolina Diaper Bank.

“Be still my soul: the Lord is on your side.

Bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;

leave to your God to order and provide;

in every change God faithful will remain.

Be still my soul: your best your heav’nly friend

through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

 

For over 172 years of ministry and service, the Lord has been on our side at New Philadelphia Moravian Church. God has been faithful to us through many changes. As a congregation we are facing another change with the retirement of Rev. Dr. Worth Green after 30 years of faithful and fruitful ministry. While it is hard to imagine what our congregation will be like without his leadership and presence, God will provide us with all that we need to continue the good work He has begun among us. 

As we enter into this season of transition, the Joint Board has decided to bring in a transitional pastor to help our congregation as we prepare for the future of our ministry as New Philadelphia Moravian Church. We plan to have our transitional pastor in place after Worth’s last Sunday and anticipate this work to last about a year.

Though change can bring uncertainty, let us maintain our unshakable hope and confidence in our God and in each other. God will guide our future as he has our past.

 

“Be still my soul: your God will undertake to guide the future as in ages past.

 Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake;

all now mysterious shall be bright at last.

Be still my soul: the waves and winds still know

the Christ who ruled them while he dwelt below.”
