Opportunities & Events:

Candle Tea Returns! Friday, December 2nd (2:00-9:00pm)

The Candle Tea has been First Moravian’s Christmas gift to the Greensboro community for over 70 years. This year, we are excited to once again offer an in-person event after our pandemic pause. Our 2022 Candle Tea will take place on Friday, December 2nd, from 2:00-9:00pm.

Join us for live music in the Sanctuary, refreshments in the Tavern, Moravian craft demonstrations (star-making, beeswax candle-making, pottery, instrument-making and more), the Putz, and an opportunity to purchase your favorite holiday goodies, including chicken pies, lighted Advent stars, and Moravian baked goods.

Can’t make the Candle Tea event in December? During the month of November, our online store will offer Candle Tea goodies for pre-order. Pre-paid online orders will be available for pick-up on Saturday, December 3rd, from 1:00-3:00pm in the church parking lot.

If chicken pies remain after the Candle Tea event on December 2nd, they will be available during our pick-up window on Saturday, December 3rd, on a first-come, first-served basis and then in our online store. (Please note that we offer local pick-up only and are unable to ship.)

We hope to see you at this year's 2022 Candle Tea!

FMC Adopts Non-Discrimination Policy

At their monthly meeting on September 11, 2022, the Joint Board reviewed the previously proposed draft resolution entitled “Statement of Nondiscrimination and Inclusion.” The draft resolution was emailed to the congregation in a separate email on September 2 and later as part of the Moravian Minutes. After considering the questions and comments received from the congregation, the Joint Board unanimously voted to adopt the "Statement of Nondiscrimination and Inclusion" without changes. The final version may be viewed here.

The Joint Board appreciates the thoughtful comments and questions that were submitted, as well as your prayerful consideration of the resolution. If you have questions about the policy or the process, please contact a member of the Joint Board or Rev. Styers.
