and come out for the annual CAR SHOW & CHICKEN BBQ 
at Fry's Valley Moravian Church tomorrow, Saturday, August 19. 
We're located at 594 Fry's Valley Road SW, just a few miles off OH-416 between Gnadenhutten and Tuscarawas. 

We have lots of door prizes, silent auction items, a beautiful setting, delicious food, and, of course, CARS! Shiny and slick, nostalgic and memorable, restored and in-process CARS!
Come to show off your own, or just to appreciate what's on display. 
Either way, all of the fun will be backed by an oldies soundtrack spun by our event DJ.

Registration begins at 1:30 p.m. Chicken Dinners with Homemade Sides & Desserts will be available between 3:00 and 6:00 p.m. (Don't be late! Our legendary chicken often sells out!)

It's Time Again for 2nd Sunday Cinema

On the second Sunday evening of every month, Pastors Chris and Darrell Johnson host a movie-watching group at Schoenbrunn Community Moravian Church. Popcorn is available, of course!

But even better than a good flick and a snack is the opportunity to come together for fellowship, and for conversation about faith and life as sparked by the featured movie.

Our next session will be Sunday evening, August 13, from 6-8:30 p.m. Folding chairs will be set up, but feel free to bring your favorite portable seat.

This monthly event is brought to you through the Ohio Moravian Ministries Commission:  Strengthening our local ministries and engaging in cooperative ministries 
for the upbuilding of the Body of Christ.

The Summer Series: 2nd Sunday Cinema

It's very odd trying to promote a movie-based discussion group when the license agreement allowing us to publicly show popular films also prohibits us from publishing the film titles! Do we let a little publicity challenge like that stand in our way! Of course not! And so we announce to you,as best we can, our summer line-up of movies meant to spark conversations about faith and life and how we both experience and talk about God.

2nd Sunday Cinema meets at Schoenbrunn Moravian Community Church at 6:00 p.m. on, you guessed it, the second Sunday of each month. Depending on the length of the movie and the depth of our discussion, we finish no later than 9:00 p.m., but sometimes earlier. Please use the back parking lot and the door to Fellowship Hall. Our gatherings are geared toward adults and older teens. If you have any questions, please call Rev. Chris Johnson at 484-894-9077.

The Moravian Churches of Tuscarawas County often share in ministry opportunities together. This is one of those efforts! 2nd Sunday Cinema is sponsored by the Ohio Moravian Ministries Commission (OMMC).

2nd Sunday Cinema Moves to 3rd Sunday

During May ONLY, 2nd Sunday Cinema will move to the 3rd Sunday of the month to avoid infringing on Mother's Day celebrations.

Come on Sunday, May 21 from 6-9 p.m. to watch an inspiring movie and then stay a bit longer to talk about it from a faith perspective. We meet at Schoenbrunn Community Moravian Church, 2200 E. High Avenue in New Philadelphia.
Please use the lower parking lot and the Fellowship Hall entrance.

While licensing regulations prevent us from publishing the name of the movie, you'll recognize this recent Academy Award nominee as...

... the incredible untold story of Katherine G. Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle MonĂ¡e)-brilliant African-American women working at NASA, who served as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation's confidence, turned around the Space Race, and galvanized the world. The visionary trio crossed all gender and race lines to inspire generations to dream big.

Adults and older teens are welcomed to participate. Bring friends! The movie is rated PG for thematic elements and some language. 

2nd Sunday Cinema is among the many Shared Ministry projects offered through the Moravian Churches in Tuscarawas County and supported by the Ohio Moravian Ministries Commission (OMMC).
