The 12th Moravian Women’s Conference will be held June 25-28, 2015 at Sandy Cove Conference Center in North East, Md. Sandy Cove’s 220-acre retreat center is located minutes from I-95 between Philadelphia and Baltimore in North East, Maryland on the headwaters of the Chesapeake Bay.
Keynote speaker Jennifer Sands will share her testimony of coming to salvation through Christ after her husband was killed on September 11. Keynote speaker Reverend Dr. Craig Atwood will guide the conference attendees to view Moravian church pioneer women and the importance of their role in the ministry of the denomination. And Mary Kategile will share her love for Moravian women in Tanzania and how we can be a part of their spiritual growth.
The 2015 conference invited potential workshop leaders to submit an application to lead a conference workshop on the conference webpage (www.moravianwomensconference.org) and more than 20 women did just that!
Submitted workshop topics are so interesting that all were accepted, although a few had to be modified because of room availability. The conference committee believes that attendees will love the options with such varied topics as Albania to Spiritual Gifts to Plants that Light Up the Bible.
Limited scholarships to offset conference registration fees are now available to women from the Northern and Southern Provinces of the Moravian Church in America on a rolling, first-come, first-serve basis.
Early bird registration began on Epiphany, 2014 and will continue until Epiphany of 2015. Plan to attend and worship with Moravian sisters from around the world next year!
