Moravians! Advent is here, which means, by tradition, many of us have our stars assembled and displayed. In the spirit of the season and fostering our Moravian unity, we’d like you to send us a picture of how you have your Moravian star displayed. If you feel led, include a description of what Advent/Christmas means to you as a Moravian Christian.
How to Submit:
Post your star image on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram
with the hashtag #MoravianStar2016
and tag @MoravianBCM
(Moravian Board of Cooperative Ministries (BCM) on Facebook.) Don’t forget to include your description of what Christmas means to you as a Moravian Christian! If you prefer to keep your name and location private, email your submission to [email protected]
. You may also direct/private message your pictures to us on the listed social media platforms (we are MoravianBCM
on all three.)
Please submit by December 24, 2016.
What do we plan to do with this?
We will simply share some of our favorite Advent star pictures submitted by you. If we make a final product, like #MoravianStar2015’s photo mosaic, then participants, our social media followers, and e-newsletter subscribers will be the first to know!
We are currently offering the #MoravianStar2015 image above as a notecard for purchase! The notecards are $12 for one pack of ten, and $50 for five packs of ten. They come with envelopes. Shipping fees are not included. To order, email [email protected]
or call (336) 722-8126.
Cards are available for purchase in person at our office, and are being offered on consignment to congregations to be sold at events. All proceeds go to benefit Sunnyside Ministry’s Gaining Control
Please read the below information carefully.
NOTE ON PRIVACY:
If you post your image to social media and prefer to keep your location private, please do so by not tagging a location when you post your image. If you prefer to keep both your name and/or username as well as location private, submit your image via email ([email protected]) or direct/private message us on one of the listed social media platforms. Please expressly tell us we are not permitted to use your name or location by saying you want your submission to remain anonymous.
By submitting, you give us permission to repost your submitted image, your description, and name/general location (if not expressly denied) on all digital platforms. You also agree to let us reuse the images/descriptions/name/general location (the last two only if given) for future purposes, both digitally and in print for non-commercial purposes. The original submitted photo’s copyright still belongs to the original photographer. Your submission must be your own creation or submitted with the original creator’s permission and not violate others’ copyright or expectation of privacy. The Moravian BCM will seek formal permission from creators before printing images on a commercial product.
