Sunday, August 21st 2022 | 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. | New Philadelphia Moravian Church, Winston-Salem, NC

We are so excited to bring you this year’s Moravian Children’s Festival! This year’s event will be a partnership with South Fork Elementary where Moravians and South Fork families can celebrate together and begin the school year in a truly Moravian way.

The afternoon begins at New Philadelphia where the Gray family and friends will start us off with music and sing-a-longs.

Festivities begin with a formal welcome to the festival and a visit from Brother John Amos Comenius, the father of modern education and picture books!

There will be several activity stations to visit including a Story and Stretch yoga story, a read aloud of the storybook When God Made the World, a craft of making backpack tags, a cup decorating activity that will be used in the closing in a motion game, other fun game stations, and the making of the commemorative piece for the festival for the Moravian Archives.

All activities will end at 3:30 p.m. with a gathering for the closing litany for the school year and a chance to learn about the Moravian tradition of Cup of Covenant with our decorated cups, praying together for a kind and successful school year.

All events will be outside activities!  There will not be the traditional Lovefeast, but we will end with the Cup of Covenant service.

Be sure to put it on your calendar and bring your friends along for a fun afternoon to re-gather in a safe place after a couple years of the pandemic! Please contact the Commission on Congregational Development for any questions you may have.
