In our worship this week, we welcome the Rev. Dr. Nola Knouse as she offers our sermon and other leadership to this week’s virtual worship and our weekly mailing packet that goes out to those who aren’t on our email list. As many of you know, the Rev. Dr. Knouse serves as the Executive Director of the Moravian Music Foundation and was gracious and comfortable enough with the current filming format of our worship to grace us with a message this week while allowing Pastor Christy some time for both rest and to attend to other tasks for our congregation during this time. We give thanks for her assistance and leadership today.
We continue to listen to guidance being offered from both the state and denominational leaders about large group gatherings. Governor Cooper’s press briefing yesterday has extended the stay at home order through at least May 8 and, given the plan he has outlined, we might be able to resume some gatherings at the earliest by late May. The Joint Board will be having conversations about the many questions we need to think through soon. Please be patient and keep in mind that we are trying our best to make decisions that uphold the health and wellbeing of all members and friends of our congregation.
If you join in our virtual worship, please share in praying and singing along with our Easter Liturgy found in the PDF embedded below.MBW1995-Liturgy-for-Easter
