    On January 31st, a joint service was held at St. Stephen’s. 
    Also in attendance were the Daggett Moravian Church and Hand Bell Choir. Moravians and Lutherans regard themselves as distinct members of a single flock who are following their Shepherd in mission and ministry. In 1999, the  Moravian Church and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America joined in a relationship of full communion.  For worship, this new relationship of “full communion” means that, although the participating churches remain individual denominations, they welcome each other to worship as if they were members of that church and encourage each other to receive the sacraments in their celebrations. It also means that in this new relationship, the clergy may be invited to serve in each other’s churches. The first worship service of full communion was held on January 27, 2000 in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. On January 31st, we celebrated the 16th anniversary of our full communion, together here, with Word and Sacrament to the praise and glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. A potluck followed the worship service. Click here to view photo gallery
