ABOUT US

At Schoeneck Moravian Church, we like to think of ourselves as a community – a community that is centered in Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. As a community of faith, we worship together, study together, serve together, care for one another in times of need, and pray for one another. We endeavor to be a genuinely friendly church. Visitors are always welcome at Schoeneck Moravian, and we want everyone to feel a sense of acceptance and belonging as we encourage one another in our spiritual journeys. Children and young people are a focus for us, and we place a strong emphasis on our Sunday School, youth ministry, and Christian Education programs.

Online Worship To Continue

Based on the recommendations from our state and county leaders as well as the Provincial Elders Conference of the Moravian Church, the Joint Board has decided to extend the closure of the church building and cancellation of all in-person worship and activities until further notice. The Board believes this to be the best thing we can do to continue to protect the health of our members and community.

Sunday worship services will continue to be available online through Facebook Live and YouTube.

As God’s redeemed people, we are now God’s handiwork, created in Jesus to do good works (Ephesians 2:10). God has entrusted us with gifts of time, talent, treasure, and testimony to make Him known in the world. On certain Sundays, we will take a few minutes during worship to give God thanks for the good work He has allowed us to do as we highlight the faithful stewardship of ministries in our church.

The Board of Elders has been discussing how to accommodate our members who need gluten free communion wafers. The problem in serving communion is the cross- contamination from the bread which has gluten onto the communion wafer. A miniscule crumb of the bread falling onto the gluten free wafer is enough to cause severe reactions to those who have gluten intolerances like Celiac Disease. We have purchased individually wrapped gluten free communion wafers to thwart cross contamination. For more information BeyondCeliac.org.

The annual meeting of our Church Council at Schoeneck will take place on Sunday, February 2 at 12:30 PM. After the worship service that day (only one service on this day), we will enjoy a covered dish luncheon in the Fellowship Hall. Bring your favorite dish to share. The business meeting will follow after lunch. Key items on the agenda will be the selection of church officers and consideration of our 2019 church budget.

PLEASE NOTE THE DEADLINE for those with reports due. Please provide your reports to the church office no later than Sunday, January 5th. If you can get them in sooner, this would be a big help. We hope to have copies of the 2019 Annual Report available on Sunday, January 26th.
