Come in Faith
We don't come so much in a faith already formed, the kind of faith that is often more fantasy than faith, the assurance that we can do anything with God. We come in faith that we will enter into a place where we can grow in faith, grow by the love and witnesses of faith in those around us.
Go with Peace
How do we go with peace? Can our worship and our church family fill us with peace that we face the threats of conflicts as peacemakers? Peace is not the absence of conflict but in spite of the reality. Peace is not absence of destructive forces around us - forces of disease, war, hatred and evil…

Living God's Love
Our worship should take us into lives of service
For as much as you do it for one of the least of these, you do it for me, Jesus said. Our worship should take us into lives of service, in our family, our community and our world. We serve the community of Allentown through donations to the Ecumenical food bank and seasonal outreach like Angel Tree (Salvation Army) and warm clothing drives. We also are organizing groups for local service in Allentown and mission trips to New York, etc. Our church dinners, picnics and other gatherings provide a space for our local community to share in meals and fellowship with us.
I am proud to say I am a third generation member of Calvary Moravian. I was baptized, confirmed, and later married in this church. I have discovered over the years that, though I was "born" into this church, Calvary is a place where anyone can feel at home. At Calvary you are welcomed into the church family no matter where you are on your spiritual or life journey. I have two young children who also feel right at home at Calvary and look forward to their Sunday school classes. I enjoy watching them learn and grow their faith in such a fun and loving environment.
When I first came to Calvary, over fifty years ago, I did not know much about the Moravians. After I attended my first service, I found that the church was warm and inviting. I began to have interest in the church and its history, and soon began to read books on its origins, attending worship services, and diving into its liturgies. I soon found that the church was rich in its heritage and traditions, something that I appreciated. It soon became apparent that I wanted to join the church, and by doing so I confessed that Jesus Christ was my Lord and Savior. Thus began a fellowship between him, my church, and the community around me. With this knowledge my faith began to grow to the point, that when I had adversity in my life — I was able to cope. Now, when someone asks me of what faith am I, I proudly say, "I am Moravian."
Calvary Moravian is a very welcoming and accepting church. Calvary's congregation is made up of a variety of people of differing generations, occupations, talents and backgrounds - all contributing their perspectives and services to the betterment of the church family. Visitors are always welcome and many have said that they could sense that right away.
