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.

SHARING CHRIST’S PRESENCE IN OUR COMMUNITY

  • The word Epiphany means “revelation” or “manifestation”. So Epiphany, the season of the church year that we are now in, is God’s revelation of Himself to humanity.
  • For Christians, this season of Epiphany should carry greater weight because in this revelation, God also revealed His tangible plan of salvation to include all Gentiles.

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.

“Be shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care, watching over them — not because you must, but because you are willing, as God wants you to be; not pursuing dishonest gain, but eager to serve; not lording it over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that will never fade away.” (1 Peter 5:2b-4)

Do you feel called? Are you willing to serve? Perhaps God is calling you to serve as a Trustee at Schoeneck Moravian Church. We are looking for two additional people who feel called to serve on the Board of Trustees to be elected this year at church council. 

As a Trustee, you will help with two primary tasks: 

  1. Deciding the best way to utilize the resources that have been entrusted to the church
  2. Watching over the physical operation of the church facility 

You don’t need to be a building expert or a numbers specialist to be a Trustee. The main thing required in order to serve as a Trustee is a willing heart. Just as God called a stutterer to speak to the king of Egypt and a boy to take down a giant, God may be calling you — you, who think you have nothing to offer — to serve on the board. “Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart” (1 Samuel 16:7). All God needs is your heart, and He will equip you with all the rest. 

If you are feeling called to serve on the Trustees, please speak to Katie Elliott, President of the Board of Trustees, or one of the Pastors. 

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.
