It is holiday cooking time or smoking time that is! Men’s Fellowship at New Philadelphia Moravian will be smoking pork tenderloin, boneless turkey breasts, beef tenderloins, and smoked meat loafs on Tuesday November 23 for Thanksgiving and Wednesday, December 22 for Christmas. 

All proceeds are directed to the Simmons-Dula Fund for Laurel Ridge. This fund supports maintenance projects for the Laurels Lodge and four cabins and purchasing additional equipment for the tractor.

The pork tenderloins are $18.00 each and like those you find in Harris Teeter that range in size (uncooked) 1 to 1-1/4 pounds. Our pork tenderloins are seasoned with a spicy rub and smoked more or less for two hours!

The 3-pound boneless turkey breast is seasoned with a rosemary garlic-based rub and smoked more or less four to five hours and priced at $20.00 each.

Beef tenderloins range in size from 2 to 3.5 pounds and are $30.00 per pound so they range in price from $60 – $105. Each beef tenderloin is weighed and priced after it is smoked and packaged. The beef is cooked to an internal temperature of 120 degrees (rare) so you may reheat to desired doneness.

At a cost $20.00 each smoked meat loafs are here to stay. Reheating directions will be included with your order. For more information contact: Joey Transou, 336-971-7804. Your order will be available in the Pavilion.

Thanksgiving orders must be placed by Sunday, November 14 for pickup on Tuesday, November 23, from 3:00 – 6:00 PM in the pavilion.

Christmas orders must be placed by Sunday, December 12 for pickup on Wednesday, December 22 from 3:00 – 6:00 PM in the pavilion.

Our friends and neighbors in Texas, Florida, and the Caribbean have been hit hard by the recent hurricanes. Even though the full extent of the damage is not yet known, we have established a Hurricane Relief Fund. Between today and the end of 2017, you can make your financial donations. Please make your checks out to New Philadelphia Moravian Church and indicate “Hurricane Relief” on the memo line. This is a special offering that is made in addition to your regular tithes and offerings to the church. We are providing $1,000 from our Benevolence Fund to start the Hurricane Relief fund. 

After all the funds have been received, we will send them to the Moravian Board of World Mission for their disaster relief efforts. We will also share any information about work teams and other relief efforts that will be going to the Gulf Coast, Florida, or the Caribbean.

From the Prayer of Intercession in Time of Crisis:

God of mercy, God of comfort, we come before you in this time of difficulty, mindful of human frailty and need, confused and struggling to find meaning in the face of suffering.

We are grateful the even as we share in the joy of Christ Jesus, we can also share abundantly in comfort in the midst of suffering.

For victims of fire or flood, storm or earthquake, famine of disease; for those whom disaster has left homeless, injured or bereaved; for refugees and those separated from loved ones; for all who are in danger, trouble, or anguish,

We ask the presence and strength of your Spirit.

Give all who suffer the love that bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.

We know that suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, character produces hope, and hope does not disappoint us, because your love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit.
