We use a variety of tools to help us worship in a way that is relevant for today without compromising the message of the gospel. We use hymns, praise songs, litanies, prayer, drama, vocal and bell choirs, children’s messages – all are examples of what might be included to guide worship. Messages are Biblically-centered and relevant for your faith practice in today’s world.
We have started having a contemporary worship service in place of our traditional worship service on the last Sunday of each month. These services have contemporary praise music in place of traditional hymns and liturgy. They still have a children's message, prayer, offering, and a Bible-based message from Pastor Jason.
We have a nursery at Christian Faith Moravian Church which is staffed by adults during services on Sunday morning.
Lent & Easter
The beginning of Lent begins with our Ash Wednesday Service when all in attendance have the opportunity to receive the imposition of ashes.
On Wednesday evenings during Lent we meet for a Lenten meal followed by a short worship gathering.
During Holy Week the Holy Week readings walk us through Jesus experiences and on Maundy Thursday we will gather to remember Jesus’ words to his disciples on his final night with them, and we gather at our Lord’s Table to partake of the sacrament of Holy Communion.
On Good Friday we have our Tenebrae Service, a simple worship service consisting of scripture and song. The service uses light and darkness to recall the shadows that Jesus faced on our behalf.
Our Easter Sunrise Service welcomes the new day with the promise of Christ's resurrection and possibility of new life for all of his followers. It begins in the sanctuary just before sunrise and then we head out to our cemetery for the conclusion of the service to watch the sunrise. Following the service, we return to church for an Easter Breakfast.
We have two Christmas Eve candlelight services in which, beeswax candles with red paper frill are distributed to worshippers . An 18th century Moravian tradition, these candles represent the purity of Christ and his gift of light into our hearts. .
There is a very large Moravian star that illuminates our sanctuary during Advent and Christmas. This 26 point star is a classic symbol of the Moravian Church.
