Moravian Music Sunday, April 29, 2018

The fifth Sunday of Easter, April 29, 2018, has been designated as Moravian Music Sunday.  The purpose of this observance is to help all congregations become more familiar with our rich heritage of Moravian music.  Music is an expression of faith, and thus continuing creativity is to be encouraged.

Bethlehem, Pennsylvania

Sister Melissa Johnson, who has been serving as pastor for Palmer Township Moravian Church, Easton, Pennsylvania, has accepted the call to serve as pastor for Advent Moravian Church, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Sister Johnson will be installed into her new work June 17, 2018.
