See You At the Bottom: A Speaker and an Event You Will Not Want to Miss

First Moravian Church of Dover and its Joint Board are excited to present Joe Dertinger, a 2015 National Patient Ambassador for Shriners Hospital, as our special speaker on August 2 during worship at 9:30 a.m.

Joe is a 19-year-old Moravian Olympic Caliber Skier who spent the last year speaking and inspiring others on behalf of the Shriners organization.  He has traveled the country telling his story of fortitude, courage, and joy in pursing your dreams in spite of adversity.  This Para Olympic Skier will be our guest.  Joe and his twin sister, Johanna, and parents, Mike and Sue, come to us from Waconia, Minnesota.

You will want to bring a neighbor to this inspirational and motivational Sunday. First Moravian Church is located at 319 N. Walnut Street in downtown Dover.

Joe Dertinger, dynamic athlete and inspirational speaker.
