Young People Encouraged

The Rev. Isai Granwell Nuth and The Rev. Misael Allen Miller, officials from the Honduras Moravian Province in February 2013 shown ministering to the younger generation at the Moravian Revival in Anchorage, Alaska.

Christ is the Lily of the Valley! A good song sung by an Athabascan – Mr. Ken Charlie from the interior of Alaska at the Anchorage Moravian Church. Wonderful! The AncMC is blessed by many gifted musicians who come from the four corners of the grand state of Alaska. God bless you for sharing Br. Ken. And certainly Paul Kiunya Jr., we miss you since you moved to Sitka, Alaska, but thank you in advance for all the times you travel to bless us during the special services to glory our Savior, Jesus Christ.

God may bring us through great difficulty so He can use us more. In Psalm 42:7 (KJV) … Read More…

“Reclaim Our Moravian Heritage” by Bishop Nicholson

According to what I’ve read “85% of US churches are declining in attendance, while 15% are increasing through transfer growth”. No one would argue with me in United Alaska that the Churches in America and even in Alaska are sick, because our moral foundations are eroding. As a church we’ve experienced so many blessings that our primary values are comfort and blessing and relishing in the past. I think if Christ could preach now, amongst us, or if Bishop Zinzendorf spoke from our our pulpits, they would encourage us to grow and advance the Church and to preach about being … Read More…
