Jesus, the Way, the Truth and the Life

Here is a glimpse into a recent spontaneous worship at a non-denominational evening Singspiration, Sunday night, 6 pm, at the Anchorage Moravian Church.  No one told the folks to stand and worship; it was prompted by a move of the Holy Spirit.  Such freedom of worship in “Spirit & Truth!”  The familiar Moravian liturgical service is at 11:30 am, Sunday.  Everyone welcome!

Christmas Eve Candlelight Service 2015

The AncMC held a Christmas Eve Candlelight service on December 24,2015, 5 pm.  The Anchorage Moravian Church with input by United Alaska’s Lion & Fire Lion of Judah Ministry youth, who lit the Christ Candle and input by two other pastors – Russell “Rusty” Dimmick (pastor from Kenai Peninsula Moravian Church) and Russell Lamont (United Alaska’s Mobile and Fund Raising pastor) who both read the scripture helped to set the atmosphere.  We are fortunate to have Carrie Paton head up a Moravian Choir with several members of the Yupik & Inupiat people, who sang “O Holy Night”.  An AncMC Confirmand, Isabella Riopelle and another young person, Miss Toyukak led the congregation in singing “Morning Star”.   A wonderful experience and truly a special time as we gathered together to worship God!

Here’s wishing Moravians everywhere a special Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

AFN CONVENTION TIME INVITE TO ANCHORAGE MORAVIAN CHURCH

maria magruder-krinockfrom the desk of William Nicholson, Pastor AncMC:

ALL KINDS OF ACTIVITIES DURING AFN THIS WEEK. I AM PRAYING THAT GOD WILL BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOUR FAMILY MEMBERS SAFE. I KNOW THAT IT IS A TIME OF PICKING AND CHOOSING WHAT AND WHERE TO GO FOR WORSHIP.

BASED UPON YOUR SPIRITUAL NEEDS, I AM PRAYING THAT THE HOLY SPIRIT WILL DIRECT YOU. If you are in Anchorage, I am giving a personal invite for any of you to attend the Miracle Faith events at the Anchorage Moravian Church beginning Thursday, October 15, 2015, 6:30 pm and going nightly until October 18, 2015. MUSICIANS ARE INVITED!!! Also on Saturday, October 17, 2015, 4 pm, a special potluck is provided.

Sister Maria is a powerful spokesperson for God with spiritual giftedness and power prayer for healing of spirit, mind, and body. Here is Sister Maria Magruder-Krinock”s biography:

Maria Magruder-Krinock answered the call of God in 1997, while living in Anchorage Alaska. As she traveled the villages in Alaska, she saw the great need for the power of God to be manifest in the people’s lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Not only providing food for the villages, Maria had a great increase of salvations, miracles, healing and deliverance.

In October 2002, Maria relocated the ministry from Nevada to Pensacola, Florida to study at International Miracle Institute and be a part of the Miracle Faith Apostolic Global Church. Maria had the honor and privilege of receiving a greater revelation of the Word of God and impartation of the gift of working of miracles on a much greater level than ever before, due to the teaching of Drs. Christian and Robin Harfouche. Dr. Christian & Robin Harfouche are Maria’s father and mother in the faith and remains under their 5-fold apostolic gift for the last 12+ years to present.

Flowing strongly in the gift of working of miracles, Maria has a passion to see the body of Christ living in the realm of victory, no matter what opposing circumstance they may be facing. Maria equips the body of Christ with a biblical word of supply that ignites the very heart of people to go to the next level in their walk with Christ.

Sister Maria has spent thirteen years of study of the Word of God under Drs. Christian and Robin Harfouche, and licensed through International Miracle Institute with a Doctorate of Divinity and a Doctorate of Ministry. Maria’s home church is Miracle Faith Apostolic Global Church in Pensacola, Florida where she currently resides with her husband, Conrad.
