Guys' Night Paint Session

For about a year now, Sheila Davis has been offering painting classes as a spiritual discipline. These "Spiritual Splatter" sessions have been extremely popular...but they've had a tendency to be populated by women. Not wanting men to miss out on all the creative benefits of artistry and fellowship, Sheila has designed a project especially for a Guys' Night Paint Session:

Thursday, April 27
7 p.m. - 9 p.m.

Fry's Valley Moravian Church

594 Fry's Valley Road SW
New Philadelphia, Ohio

Cost for the session: $25. This includes all the materials needed to complete a 12" X 12" canvas, instruction, and refreshments.

To reserve a spot, please contact Sheila Davis at her Facebook page, or Chris Johnson at 484-894-9077 (cell) or or on her Facebook page.

This event and many are part of the Shared Ministry offered among our Ohio Moravian Churches and endorsed by the Ohio Moravian Ministries Commission (OMMC).

2nd Sunday Cinema: Special Edition

Tomorrow will bring us to the 2nd Sunday of April and the monthly gathering known as 2nd Sunday Cinema where we come together to watch and discuss movies from a faith perspective. Tomorrow will also be Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week. To accommodate all the significant observances that will be taking place in our congregations, 2nd Sunday Cinema will meet at a special time   --2:00 p.m. 

Join us for the screening of a film that reminds us of the impact of Jesus' death and resurrection. Told through the fictionalized perspective of Clavius, a Roman soldier and his aide, Lucius, the two are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus in the weeks following the crucifixion in order to disprove the rumors of a risen Messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.* It is an intriguing approach to the Easter Story. (Warning: There are violent scenes in the film. It is rated PG-13.)

2nd Sunday Cinema takes place at Schoenbrunn Community Moravian Church, 2200 E. High Avenue in New Philadelphia, Ohio. Please use the parking lot behind the building and enter through the door to Fellowship Hall. Part of the Shared Ministry effort of the Moravian Churches in Tuscarawas County, this event is open to any older teens and adults who would like to participate.

*Licensing rules prevent us from publicizing the name of the movie on this page.
