At First Moravian Church you will find a welcoming atmosphere and chances are there is someone here who is just like you. Our members come from all walks of life and from many religious backgrounds. It has been said that the Moravian Church is the "closest church to every other Christian church". For this reason individuals from a variety of denominations and faith traditions find a common home here.
Our worship services are a mixture of what you may experience in a Methodist, Lutheran, Baptist or Episcopal church; simple and informal, yet reverant; liturgical, but not ritualistic. Children spend part of our worship hour with their family and then are invited to more age-appropriate worship in children's church. We also welcome non-Christians who want to learn more about the Christian faith. We would like to invite you to become a part of our Christian community where we will accept you as you are.
Here you will find an emphasis on spiritual growth as well as outreach to the poor and needy in our community and the world. Our hope is that every member will grow spiritually to become an active participant in sharing God's love with the world. Moravians have long used small groups for Bible study, prayer and fellowship. We believe that these groups are the best way to strengthen ties between members and to deepen our intimacy with Christ. We have age-based groups, groups for women, groups for men, intergenerational groups and we are open to creating new group opportunities depending on individual spiritual interests and needs.
Although First Moravian Church is relatively small in size, our congregation is home to two adult choirs, children's ensembles, handbells, a brass band, a contemporary praise and worship band, and other musical groups. Our local outreach ministries include preparing and serving meals for the Greensboro Urban Ministry Night Shelter, delivering Mobile Meals, food collection for One Step Further Food Bank, supporting families at Pathways Center (transitional housing), sponsoring relocated refugees through NC African Services Coalition, and partnering with Mustard Seed Community Health Clinic. We provide meeting space for Narcotics Anonymous and Oxford House, and send work teams and monetary support to provide relief during national disasters. Additionally, we participate in the greater outreach and mission activities of the Moravian Church, Southern Province.
If this sounds like the kind of church home that you have been looking for, then please come join us any Sunday at 9:45 AM for Sunday School and/or 11:00 AM for Worship. We think that you will feel "right at home."
