BEING THE HANDS AND FEET OF CHRIST.
Serving the Lord as we engage our community.
At the Moravian Center of Lancaster we are all about living a simple life of faith in action through the building of relationships – that is, loving relationships with God in Christ and with our neighbors – people like you. We strive to live our motto: In Essentials – Unity; in nonessentials – Liberty; and in All Things – Love.
We'd love to meet you! Come as you are; all are welcome! Ven tal como eres, todos son bienvenidos!

CONNECTING WITH COMMUNITY
A rich history
The history of the Moravian Church dates back to 1457, with Jan Hus in the Czech Republic, and experiencing a new beginning in the 1722 when a group of refugees found themselves on the property of Count Zinezendorf in Herrnhut, Germany.
The history of the Lancaster Moravian Church dates back to 1746, when the congregation first opened its doors on West Orange Street, just blocks from our current location.
