In June 2011, more than 400 Moravian women from around the globe gathered in Concord, N.C. for the 11th Moravian Women’s Conference. Over the course of three days, the conference challenged attendees to step out of their comfort zones and be the hands and feet of Christ in our communities, churches, provinces and world. The theme, “Stepping Out of the Boat,” based on Matthew 14:29, provided inspiration for worship, music, prayer, fellowship and education.
In 2015, we’ll explore what happens after we step out of the boat. What does our journey look like? From where can we draw inspiration and strength? Who were the Moravian women who came before us and how did they walk? How do we overcome challenges, resistance and adversity as we walk in this ever-changing, complicated world? We invite all Moravian women to the shores of the magnificent Chesapeake Bay as we explore what it means to Walk in the Light today.
The 12th Moravian Women’s Conference will be held June 25-28, 2015 at Sandy Cove Conference Center in North East, Md.
