The Elizabeth Windsor Memorial Scholarship was established in 1998 in memory of Elizabeth Windsor, a teenager at NPMC at the time of her tragic death. The Scholarship serves as a living
memory of Elizabeth and as an opportunity to encourage and reward outstanding Christian character and Church participation. This document updates and supersedes all prior Joint Board action
regarding the Scholarship.

The purpose of the Elizabeth Windsor Memorial Scholarship is to promote, encourage, and reward outstanding Christian character and participation. For high school students there shall be a
demonstration of active participation at NPMC. For post-secondary students, past participation at NPMC as well as current Christian participation in their local school community will be considered. Participation may be considered qualitatively, quantitatively, or both. Recipients of an Elizabeth Windsor Memorial Scholarship may attend any accredited post-high school educational institution consistent with the Internal Revenue Code and may choose any course of study. Each Scholarship is for a period of one year, and may not be renewed.

Recipients of the Elizabeth Windsor Memorial Scholarship must be members in good standing of New Philadelphia Moravian Church. All scholarship recipients will be selected by the Elizabeth Windsor Memorial Scholarship Committee based upon the application forms, recommendations, interviews, and such other information and recommendations as the Scholarship Committee shall determine to be necessary or appropriate. The number and amount of scholarships awarded will vary from year to year based on the number of qualified applicants, and depending upon the proceeds available in and income available from the Elizabeth Windsor Memorial Scholarship fund.

On Palm Sunday (March 28th) we were blessed to welcome 5 new members (Mac Greenwood, Cora Hawfield, Noah Macemore, Sam Spach and William Starling) into our congregation by the rite of Confirmation; and one new member (Blake Woods) by the sacrament of Baptism. Two young adults (Bethany Davis and Hal Westmoreland) were also confirmed into the membership of Fries Memorial Moravian Church. The Rev. Joe Moore was the officiating pastor. Joe began classes with these students in 2019 but the classes had been put on hold for a year. We welcome you among us here!

 

We look forward to welcoming more members on Pentecost Sunday (May 23rd) through Confirmation, Baptism and Letter of Transfer.

New Philadelphia Easter Celebration Window Art Challenge

This activity is for EVERYONE, kids and adults, too. Join in the fun and let’s decorate for Easter AND share the message with our community that Jesus is risen!

You will need:

• small containers
• Tempera paint (get it anywhere in the craft aisle)
• dish soap
• painters tape
• drop cloth or plastic table cloth

Before you begin painting, place painters tape on window edges and window frame. Cover the floor with a drop cloth or plastic table cloth.

1. Start by choosing a few different colors of paint and adding a small amount to each bowl.

2. Next, add a few drops of dish soap to the paint and mix.

3. Once the mixture has been mixed well, it can be painted on to the windows. Painters tape can also be used to create lines or borders.

The window paint will dry on the windows but can easily be washed off with a cloth and warm water.

Windex will get rid of any remaining streaks.

Super easy and fun! Clean up is a breeze.

Once your masterpiece is finished, send Evie a pic (evie@newphilly.org) so we can include it in our pre-service news! Set your creativity free!
