We’re so excited to once again bring you this year’s Moravian Children’s Festival! This year’s event will be a partnership with South Fork Elementary where Moravians and South Fork families can celebrate together and begin the school year in a truly Moravian way.
 
We will begin the afternoon outside at New Philadelphia where the Gray family & friends will start us off with music and sing-a-longs.
 
This will be followed by a formal welcome to the festival and a visit from Brother John Amos Comenius, the father of modern education and picture books!
 
There will be several activity stations to visit including a Story and Stretch yoga story, a read aloud of the storybook When God Made the World, a craft of making backpack tags, a cup decorating activity that will be used in the closing in a motion game, other fun game stations, and the making of the commemorative piece for the festival for the Moravian Archives.
 
Activities will end at 3:30 p.m. with a gathering for the closing litany for the school year and a chance to learn about the Moravian tradition of Cup of Covenant with our decorated cups, praying together for a kind and successful school year.
 
There will be fun outdoor activities and a special treat!  There will not be the traditional Lovefeast but we will end with the Cup of Covenant service.
 
Be sure to put it on your calendar and bring your friends along for a fun afternoon to re-gather in a safe place after a couple years of the pandemic! Please contact the CCD for any questions you may have.
