AncMC Summer Schedule & Slump

When they return home it happens that after lots of fresh air they sleep in. Others travel back from the city to the village to spend time at fish camps in the Kuskokwim and Bristol Bay region.

If we are to be labelled, I encourage others to call us – “a Living Church”.  This is what attracts people to the Kingdom and what is growing our Church! Members and Friends of the Anchorage Moravian Church, you may be interested to read part of a message my Moravian … Read More…
