Shining a light on LOVE! Thanks to our Moravian Stars!
Be the light. Be a Moravian Star. In a time when light can be hard to find, there are still plenty of our fellow humans out there shining light into dark places and fulfilling the scriptural command to love your neighbor as yourself. Let’s transform the world with love and be the light…

Beth does the Children’s Formation at Come and Worship, and prior to the Virtual Sunday Zoom meetings, drives to each child’s home and provides them with the materials for the month, or mails them to children who participate out-of-town. The kids adore her and they truly enjoy their time with Beth. Her object lessons have helped the kids not only grow in their faith, but they become participants in worship as well.
She also makes sure that shut-ins, be they from C&W or not, have little surprises to perk up their isolation – letting them know they are loved. It might be a doughnut, a plant, a card, some soup, whatever she thinks will make them feel special. She provides rides for those who do not drive – taking them to the grocery, doctor’s appointments, whatever they need. She keeps a book and reads in her car while they are inside. So many people know all they have to do is call and she will respond – and she always does so cheerfully!
She is always thinking of everyone else – never about herself. She takes great care of her friends, family, and her cats. She not only shows the face of Jesus to all she meets, but she has the unique ability of seeing Him in everyone she encounters. She always knows the right book for any age; she knows how to make people feel good; she knows how important simple contacts are to those who are in COVID-19 isolation. She makes everyone feel special – kids, cats, adults. What truly makes her special is that she looks for ways to serve. She searches for people who need what she can give. And then she makes it happen. Beth is one of those rare people who not only sees the Light, works hard at being the Light.
Hilda is normally a very active person with extra curriculum activities. In finding new ways to spend her time, last fall she worked in cleaning, organizing, and digitalizing documents of the Friedland Moravian Archives as a Girl Scout project. She loved learning more about the history of her church and spent over 50 hours on the project. During this time, she is virtual tutoring a girl, Ariana, who needs assistance with reading. She plans her lessons and spends 2-3 hours a week for virtual tutoring. Hilda is truly showing us how to make a difference one step at a time.
