Heimtal Moravian Church is a congregation where we follow Jesus Christ in our daily lives come together to worship God our Creator, Jesus Christ our Redeemer and the Holy Spirit, our Comforter and guide. We believe it is our responsibility to respond to our Creator, Redeemer & Comforter through our faith, love, and hope. We worship together each Sunday mornings at 10 AM.
We believe that our worship is an important aspect of our life which helps give us wisdom and energy to follow Christ each and every day. Each week we pray together a liturgy of responsive readings and songs, which give us a deeper understanding of how God works in our lives. We also sing together with the help of either an organ, piano or guitar. It is important for each person to play a part in worship, thus each person in the church is asked to participate in some form of worship leadership.
Elementary school aged children are invited to join us in worship for the first half of the service, until after the Children's Chat, at which point they are invited downstairs to have a time of learning and activities, led by our wonderful Sunday School teachers.
After each service, we gather downstairs for coffee and snacks.
We hope you join us this Sunday!
With the new calendar upon us, we celebrate in two ways. We all get a personal watchword, a bible verse picked after a time of prayer to help guide our spirital lives during the year, and in good Moravian fashion, we partake in a love feast, where we celebrate together with a snack and drink an generally enjoy each other in the spirit of Christian friendship.
We also make sure that we get our daily text for the year. Its a collection of Old Testament and New Testament verses (one per day) plus two song verses (to go along with each verse) and a short daily prayer. The Daily Text is one of the most popular Moravian items used in the Christian world each day.
We still have some copies if you haven't purchased or bought yours yet. And if you're a new visitor, we'll probably give you the first one for free!
Or, if you're one who likes getting them online in a daily email, you can sign up HERE.
So if you've made a personal resolution to make faith through following Jesus Christ in 2017 a priority, I pray that you'll join us each and every Sunday to see what a difference joining other Christians in worship means to your every day life.
See you Sunday!
