Resources for Congregations

MWCEC Grant

The Moravian Western Christian Education Committee (MWCEC) is offering a grant of $500 to congregations who wish to offer a local program but do not have the funds to do so. The grant requires that the program will be designed so that other churches in the region may attend. The money could be used for speaker fees, meals, site reservation, or other costs to have the program. Following the program, MWCEC would like feedback on the program offered. To apply for the grant, email Chairperson Sheila Petroni at petronidcwis@gmail.com with your church name, event, date, and purpose of event.

Does your congregation have a story of an event, program, series, idea, curriculum, etc that you implemented that produced fruit for God’s kingdom? We’d love to hear about it and share it with the other churches — the goal is that over time we will accumulate a database of “best practices” that can be shared in other settings around the District.

To share this information, you can attach them in a separate email to the District Board’s Communication Liaison, Rev. Jason Andersen, at pastor_jason_andersen@hotmail.com.

Now begin the work, and the Lord be with you. 
1 Chronicles 22:16

Simon answered, “Master, we have worked all night long but have caught nothing. Yet if you say so, I will let down the nets.” Luke 5:5

Loving Father, we put our trust and confidence in you knowing that you have our best interest at heart. We know that whatever we do and wherever we go, we can depend on you. With grateful hearts we will follow your commands. Bless us with your knowledge and power we pray. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
