Fulfilling Christ's call to love God, live in community, and serve our neighbor

Time to think about camp!

• Where you can stand at the very peak of a mountain and look out in all directions
• Where you can gain nurture for your faith with Moravians close and far away
• Where you can experience God’s presence, regardless of your age
• And where you can get a great early-bird discount through Feb. 15! (See box below.)

Laurel Ridge, of course! Summer will be here before you know it. Check out the full line-up of 2016 camps. (Slideshow: 2015 Senior High Camp. See more pictures from all of last year's camps.)

Home Moravian Church invites you to join with us for worship, fellowship, outreach, educational activities and any of our ministries. Established in 1771, our church is located in Winston-Salem, N.C., in the historic district of Old Salem, a restored 1766 Moravian settlement. 

Sunday morning worship begins at 10 a.m. The service is broadcast live on the internet, and on WSJS AM 600, or wsjs.com. A coffee fellowship immediately follows the service. Sunday school begins at 11:15 and concludes by noon.
