Due to an Executive Order by the Governor of North Carolina, gatherings of 100+ are prohibited.
To comply with this order and for the health and safety of all, we will conduct online worship services at 10:00 a.m. March 22 and March 29.
Our Sunday morning service will live stream from our Facebook page. We are working on other viewing options as well so stay tuned.
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Do not come to church on Sunday. As a pastor I thought that I would never say those words but it is a necessity in this unprecedented time. In an effort to play our part in minimizing the effects of COVID-19, the Board of Elders has decided to not hold our weekly services as normally scheduled. We are also canceling Sunday School and children and youth events.
We will be offering a live-streamed service on Sunday morning at 10:00. It will be streamed on our Facebook page. We are working on other ways to make it available and will share that information when we have it worked out.
The service will feature our choirs and musicians and will be as close to the regular service as possible. The only thing missing will be the congregation. So please make effort to join together as an online community. Continue to give your tithes and offerings by mailing them in or giving through our church website. If you need assistance in using this feature on our site, please call Donna Wright or Rachel Weavil at the church office.
Committees, teams, and other small group gatherings will continue for the time being.
The church is not going to be closed nor will our ministry cease. We are needed now as much as we ever have been.
During these days and weeks, may this be our prayer for each other and the world:
Allow light to cast out darkness, allow faith to overcome fear, allow hope to destroy doubt, allow love to be stronger than hate. O Lord, hear our prayer.
In Christ’s abounding love,
Rev. Joe Moore
New Philadelphia Moravian Church
Due to circumstances beyond our control – the Funtastics Trip for March has been POSTPONED!
At 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 21, the Funtastics will sponsor a guided tour of the Battle for Guilford Courthouse National Military Park.
Our guide will be Clemson Turregano, a faculty member of the Center for Creative Leadership and a retired Army Officer. Clemson has been conducting tours of the Battlefield for over 15 years and guarantees a very informative and fun adventure.
The program will consist of a 30-minute film, a reenactment of the battle using an electronic model of troop movement, a visit to the bookstore and museum, and then a visit to the three battle lines. Among many other things, we will learn to load and fire a Brown Bess musket and a Grasshopper cannon. Clemson ends the afternoon, for those who want to attend, at the Natty Green Brewery where he will treat the group with a round of beverages and continued discussion. Food is available, for a cost, at the brewery.
We will leave the Church at 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, March 21.
Register with the church office by March 18. This event is limited to the first 20 people who register and spots are filling up FAST!
