Ohio Moravians Excited to Host a Weekend Full of Activities

This weekend, hundreds of visiting Moravian youth and youth supporters from 12 Eastern District congregations will travel to Tuscarawas County for a Youth Ministries Weekend. An annual tradition for many of the participants, this is the first time Ohio Moravians will join in the fun! Your enthusiastic attendance is encouraged for several of the weekend's events.

Past Quiz Bowls have been colorful events!

Worship as One

ALL of our Tuscarawas County Moravian Churches will gather with ALL of our visiting Moravian brothers and sisters for a glorious hour of worship. Familiar hymns, heartfelt prayers and joyful praise will unite us as young people from across the Eastern District lead the service. Pastor John Wallace will delight us all with a children's message, and Pastor Chris Johnson will offer the morning sermon. Brother Randy Gibbs will accompany the service, and we'll have a short, sweet theatrical presentation from some of our T-County youth:  Hunter Armstrong, Jacob Cannon, Hannah Levengood, and Jayden Stearns.

(There will be NO worship offered in our individual church buildings on this day.)

Please enter the Dover High School through the front doors. Please park on the street or in the nearby parking lots of the Dover Moravian Church. Worshipers with limited mobility may be dropped off in front of the school where assistance (including a wheel chair) will be available.
