We are... a warm, friendly, accepting place, in which to grow your relationship with God and people.

We are... a down to earth approach to faith and life that seeks to emphasize Christian faith, hope and Love, and de-emphasize doctrines and creeds.

We are... a living witness to our motto " In essentials unity; in non-essentials liberty; and in all things, Love."

We are... a Christ-centered church with an active congregational fellowship and service.

We are... a regular Protestant denomination that has been serving Christ since 1457.

We are... a worldwide church with a richly diverse group of members.

We are excited to be able to be a light to our neighbors and community, and to embrace our city.
— Pastor Mandy


We believe that being the hands of feet of Christ to those around us is essential to living out the faith we believe, and we are always looking for new ways to live into this.




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 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.
