Unity Prayer Watch

Unity Prayer Watch

Next Tuesday, January 12, is Trinity’s turn at the great Unity Prayer Watch. Every minute of every day, a Moravian somewhere is praying for the ministry of the Moravian Church. We have again been assigned the “wee hours” from midnight until 8:00 am.

Please consider signing up for a 30 minute slot — or perhaps splitting a slot with a spouse or friend. Of course, under the current COVID restrictions, we will all be praying at our homes.

You can download a Prayer Guide that will guide you through prayer for all our provinces and ministries. DOWNLOAD HERE.

LOGOS on the LAWN!

LOGOS on the LAWN!

It’s been SIX MONTHS since we have seen each other!  We are glad to be able to hold a LOGOS REUNION this Wednesday, September 16, from 5:30 pm – 7:00 pm.  Since we will be observing all safety precautions, this won’t be like “regular” LOGOS.  Masks are REQUIRED, and must be worn properly.  We will maintain social distancing.  Instead of family-style supper, we will have individual box lunches with a juice box – each child will pick up their own supper.  We will eat in LOGOS groups in a large circle, with 6 feet between each person.  Obviously, masks must be removed to eat, but then must be worn immediately after the child is finished eating.

Obviously, we will not be able to do some of the normal LOGOS activities – the Zinzendorfers will not be able to do any puppetry, for example.  However, we will still have some Bible study, crafts, and safe games. The main point is to have a reunion, to see one another and catch up on what has been going on in everyone’s life. 

Because of the 50 person limitation, we must request that only current or recently graduated LOGOS members attend. Usually we love to have guests and news friends, but in this case a couple of extra people would push us over the limit.  We are inviting recent grads if they are in town.

MASKS REQUIRED –
WE HAVE NEW FABRIC MASKS AVAILABLE IF SOMEONE FORGETS.

If you have any questions, please email Pastor John at john@johnjackman.com

Just So You Know:

Since NC is now in Phase 2.5, we are allowed to assemble up to 50 people for an outdoors event.     Current research indicates that meeting outdoors is significantly safer than meeting indoors – COVID-19 is transmitted primarily through aerosol and droplets that we emit when we breathe.   Outdoors, the unlimited quantity of air and circulation through breezes means that aerosols are dispersed and diluted quickly – unlike indoors, where the aerosols hang in the air and become concentrated.  Masks have been proven to significantly reduce the dispersion of aerosols when we exhale, and social distancing keeps a large quantity of air around each person.  All items used will be disinfected cleaned; bathrooms on the second floor CE building will be cleaned and available for use by one person at a time.  Water fountains are not in use – we will have individual water bottles available.

The safety and health of the children – and our LOGOS teachers – is our primary concern, and we will be doing everything we can to make sure everyone is safe. Please do not allow your child to attend if they are running a fever or displaying other symptoms – or if you have visited a “hot spot” for transmission in the last 14 days.

Moravian Children’s Festival

Moravian Children’s Festival

Sunday, August 16, 2020 | 2:00 PM | ONLINE

Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic,
we have moved this year’s Children’s Festival to a virtual format.

Gather your little ones and those young at heart for a virtual Children’s Festival and Lovefeast! We are excited to be offering this event for the 7th year, especially during this uncertain time! Though we cannot be physically together, we can celebrate as one – through activity sheets, singing, and lovefeast! Prepare your own elements for lovefeast at home, and then join in knowing that dozens of other families are doing the same thing!

Click the link below to visit the Festival page — the Youtube link for the Festival video will go live at 2:00 pm on August 16!

Moravian Renewal Communion

Moravian Renewal Communion

This Sunday, August 16, we will remember the Moravian Renewal on August 13, 1727 with a service of Holy Communion at 11 am. Since we are still worshiping “virtually,” we will also join in communion from our own homes. Please make sure to prepare elements in advance — wine or grape juice and bread or matzoh – so that your household can join us at Christ’s table.

For those who may not have experienced “virtual communion” before, take a moment to view Pastor Jackman’s explanation HERE.
