Olivet Moravian Church

Olivet Moravian Church offers a traditional Moravian style service on Sunday Morning at 11:00 AM. Using hymns and liturgies from the Moravian Book of Worship the worshiper is led to a point when the children have a special time with the pastor and then a Gospel Sermon is preached by the Pastor or the Pastoral Assistant.

Communion is offered some eight times during the year, and all professing Christians are welcome to participate.

Several times during the year, a Lovefeast is held. This is when the worshiper is served a mug of coffee and a sweet bun. The lovefeast dates back to 1727 when the early Moravians were befriended by Count Nicholas Von Zinzendorf on his estate in Saxony. At that time, they enjoyed a simple meal, and therefore the tradition has continued for almost 300 years.

At the Christmas Lovefeasts, each attendee is given a beeswax candle trimmed with red paper. Worshipers are invited to lift their candle on the last verse of the hymn
