Saturday, September 16, 1:00 – 2:00 PM
Central Moravian Church has been an iconic presence in downtown Bethlehem and a community resource since its founding 275 years ago. Seven months ago the church launched the public phase of an historic philanthropic effort to raise upwards of $825,000 to secure a strong foundation for the future.
Foundations…The Campaign for Central Moravian Church’s 275th Anniversary features a number of initiatives that will be of special interest to our neighborhood, including maintenance and preservation of our historic buildings, campus landscaping, and the creation of an educational endowment to support scholarships for international Moravians to attend Moravian College.
Please join us on September 16 at 1 PM for sugarcake and coffee and for a brief overview of the projects that are the focus of the Foundations campaign. We will end the afternoon with a special treat. Central’s Director of Music, Rebecca Kleintop Owens, will offer a musical tour of the Sanctuary’s magnificent MÖller organ, and Bishop Hopeton Clennon will lead a tour of seldom-visited nooks and crannies in the Sanctuary.
