Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, January 18-25, 2019

The Moravian Church is privileged to join with Christians throughout the world in prayers for the unity of the Church during the week of January 18-25. The theme for this year is, “Justice, Only Justice, You Shall Pursue” (cf. Deuteronomy 16:20).

Ecumenical Sunday, January 27, 2019

The Provincial Elders’ Conferences request that congregations observe our ecumenical witness in the worship services on Sunday, January 27, 2019. In addition to prayers and themes for preaching, our ecumenical witness is expressed in our participation in local and regional ecumenical service ministries and in councils of churches. Our church supports financially this ecumenical witness with congregational pledges for local and state councils of churches and with support for the National Council of the Churches of Christ in the USA and the World Council of Churches.

Prayer Day for Retired Ministers, January 27, 2019
