Resources for Congregations


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 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

Moravian Daily Texts


Saturday, March 24 — Psalm 38:17–22
Exodus 29:31–30:16; Matthew 26:14–30

The eyes of the Lord range throughout the entire earth, to strengthen those whose heart is true to him. 2 Chronicles 16:9

And a woman, having learned that Jesus was eating in the Pharisee’s house, brought an alabaster jar of ointment. She stood behind him at his feet, weeping, and began to bathe his feet with her tears and to dry them with her hair. Then she continued kissing his feet and anointing them with the ointment. Luke 7:37–38

Friend of sinners, thank you for the gift of grace. Cause us to see more clearly the design you have for us to share this grace with all people—including are neighbors and friends. Grant new opportunities today to share and listen for your love. Amen.
