Moravian Church Update

The Newfoundland and Labrador Moravian Church Provincial Board is scheduled to hold a teleconference next week on Tuesday, January 26th.

Joan Andersen is the Chair. She says that even though her term position as the Chair was up this month she is staying on until another person is found.

Andersen says the board members are in the process of searching for someone to fill this position.

She mentions that in other Church related news, Glenna Taesden, a Minister from Winston-Salem, North Carolina who did a six month work term in Labrador last year, will be ordained soon.

The ordination ceremony will be taking place in the Moravian Church in Happy Valley on Sunday, February 14. Taseden will then begin serving in that congregation.

Andersen says Bishop Paul Graf of the State of Wisconsin will be conducting the ordination ceremony.

Following that, Bishop Graf and his wife, accompanied by Loren Jendro, Labrador’s Representative on the Board of World Mission, will be visiting each of the coastal congregations.

Their schedule is as follows: Makkovik- Monday, February 15, Hopedale- Tuesday, February 16, and Nain- Wednesday, February 17.

She says Bishop Graf hopes to meet with the Church Leaders and hold a Church Service in those communities.

Andersen added that Bishop Graf has visited Labrador several times, and his visits are greatly appreciated, since there has not been an ordained minister serving us for a number of years.

She says he will be able to give the Churches advice and direction in a lot of matters.
