The Rev. Dr. Betsy Miller, President of the Provincial Elders of the Moravian Church, Northern Province, will share the sermon this day. In the afternoon Betsy will be officiating at Nick and Marian’s wedding.
Worship will be held at Heritage Hill State Park at 9am. Due to the Cellcom Marathon it is very difficult to get to the 1707 S. Oneida site this day for worship. We are blessed to have the wonderful alternative of the historic East Moravian Church building at Heritage Hill. Use Hwy. 172 or Webster Ave to get to Heritage Hill to avoid the marathon traffic. If you would like to bring a snack for fellowship time on the lawn, please sign up on the office bulletin board.
Sunday, May 15th is the celebration of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit of God filled the first disciples with power and purpose. This Pentecost our celebrations involve nine youth who have been led by this Spirit to confirm their faith and grow into young adulthood as followers of Christ and members of church community.

On behalf of West Side Moravian Church I invite you to join us in worship, service, community and spiritual growth through this Easter Season.
I think one amazing thing about our community is the focus on putting our faith in action. You’ll see that this month in meals served both at NEW Shelter and at our Loaves and Fishes breakfast program. Happens through our Crafter and Caring group working hard at spring cleaning our building. Faith in action takes shape in our care for God’s creation and being part of JOSHUA’s Environmental Issue night on April 21st. Also, a very faithful Christian Education team and congregation organizing fundraisers to send children and youth to summer camps.
Join us as we follow Christ this month!
Five of us from West traveled to Tricklebee Café in Milwaukee. This is a ministry of the Moravian Church led by the Rev. Christy Melby Gibbons. We helped with renovation work at what will be a pay what you can café offering nutritional food in an area of the city lacking access to healthy foods. While in Milwaukee our group participated in a “food stamp” challenge that involved having $1 to buy lunch at the local Family Dollar, which provides the best access to food in the area. We could work in teams of four and were asked to make this meal as nutritional as possible. We prepared the food at the Spirit of Peace Lutheran Church and learned more about their ministry. We are very grateful for the opportunity to learn and help a bit in this effort to offer needed resources for our neighbors to the south.
