250th Anniversary

July Focus – Family


Family – What does your family look like? There are many different types of families – all different sizes and structures and found in many places besides the home. As a member of Home Moravian Church, you are a part of our church family. Campers and counselors at Laurel Ridge are part of the camp family. A   group of missionaries working together can become a family – or a group of friends.  A family is a group who supports one another and loves one another – a family is a group united by ties. 


Church Family Life has identified the following ways you can support families, in their homes, in our community and around the world, during the month of July.  Please feel free to take part in as many of these activities as you feel called.

You can be the living hands of Christ through prayer, service and generosity – consider the following:

  • Peace within our families
  • Families with loved ones far away
  • Families experiencing poverty and homelessness
