A Living Church

The following is a commentary by The Rt. Rev. William H. Nicholson, Senior Pastor of the Anchorage Moravian Church located at 2150 E. Dowling Road, Anchorage, Alaska. A Moravian in rural Alaska calls the Anchorage Moravian Church, a “Pentecostal Church” because of our evening non-denominational singspirations.  This designation is erroneous. 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!

Need a Ride to Church?

Folks remember to contact our Church driver – Mr. Pete Stephan, a day in advance of worship so you don’t get left behind. You cannot call last minute and expect to be picked up, everytime. Please understand that Pete plans out his driving in advance.  We do not want our driver Pete to be strung out too much.  He drives an average of over 100 miles every Sunday, with many stops and goes to bring people to our worship services.  What would be nice is to get or lease another van (or mini-bus with handicap access) and secure another driver … Read More…
