Palm Sunday Lovefeast and Holy Week Readings

            On Palm Sunday, March 20 at 11:00 AM, Leaksville Moravian will begin its Holy Week and Easter celebrations with a special Palm Sunday Lovefeast at the morning worship service. We will pray the Palm Sunday Liturgy which includes the singing of the Hosanna. 

One of the distinctive features of Moravian worship during Holy Week is the use of Reading for Holy Week, a harmony of the gospel accounts of Christ’s last week before his death and resurrection. We will begin our Readings for Holy Week Palm Sunday evening at 7 pm. The readings will continue each night during the week at 7 pm. Holy Communion will be celebrated at 7 pm on Maundy Thursday. At this service we remember Christ’s Last Supper with his disciples, and give special thanks for his allowing us to participate in it through communion.

 

Pancake Breakfast to Benefit CCM Food Pantry

posted Feb 22, 2016, 6:12 AM by Melissa Mericle

Our CCM food pantry continues to serve many needs. CCM also needs our continued support through food donations and financial support. Leaksville Moravian will host our annual Pancake Breakfast to raise money to support CCM. All proceeds will go directly to support CCM.

This year, the Pancake Breakfast will be held on Saturday, March 5, from 7:00 AM to 10:30 AM. Tickets will be available early in February and are $5 per person with children under 3 free. Help is needed to serve breakfast, prepare breakfast, and of course, sell tickets. Although food prices have increased since last year, if we can sell a few more tickets than we did last year, we should be able to raise almost the same profit as last year. If you can help serve, prepare food, or sell tickets, please see Mike Hurd (627-4462) or Will Chriscoe (361-0378).

IRA Gift Announcement

Attached is an announcement about a new provision in Federal Law (signed by the President on Friday) that encourages Americans, age 70 1/2 who have IRAs, to make tax free charitable gifts directly from their IRAs to their church or favorite ministry of the Church – up  to $100,000, per year.

The Moravian Ministries Foundation is prepared to do what they can to help members make gifts to the church. While this law is permanent, the deadline is 12/31 for making gifts this year.

November Events

posted Nov 4, 2015, 6:20 AM by Melissa Mericle

Chief Elder Communion

           Holy Communion will be celebrated on Sunday, November 8, at 11:00 am, as Moravians worldwide gather to remember that Jesus Christ is Chief Elder of our church. On this day we celebrate Christ’s leadership of our Church, and of each of us. It is a time to renew our loyalty to our Savior by sharing the sacramental meal He first offered. The Rev. Dr. Daniel Crews, our guest preacher, will serve communion.

 

Thanksgiving Lovefeast

          On Sunday, November 22, we will partake of a traditional Moravian lovefeast in celebration of Thanksgiving. As we gather to worship, we have an opportunity to share our blessings with others. We will collect canned goods and other non-perishable items for the CCM food bank. Please be generous!

 

The Hanging of the Greens

          Sunday, November 29, is the First Sunday in Advent and we will prepare our hearts and our sanctuary with a Hanging of the Greens service. Together we will pray the Advent Liturgy, sing “Hosanna,” light the Advent star and the first candle on the Advent wreath, and decorate the sanctuary with greenery.

Some decorations will be in place as the worship service begins; some will be added by members of the congregation as the service progresses. The traditions and symbolism of the decorations will be explained as together we beautify the sanctuary. Special music, hymns, and Scripture readings will complete the service. Volunteers are needed, both readers and decorators. If you are interested in assisting with this special service, please speak to Pastor Bob or Sara Peterson.
