Moravians in Mission at our Sister Churches
Prayer Shawl Ministry
Members of our prayer shawl ministry knit and crochet prayer shawls for persons going through times of sickness, crisis and transition. For more information about helping to make shawls or about receiving a shawl, contact Great Kills Moravian Church.
Moravian Community Garden
Located on the grounds at Castleton Hill Moravian Church, the SI Moravian Community Garden has 39 garden plots and is handicap accessible. The garden provides space for volunteers to grow their own food to take home and also provides space to grow herbs and vegetables for Project Hospitality’s soup kitchen and food pantry. For more information, contact Castleton Hill Moravian Church.
We collect clean, gently used clothing during March, April and early May. In May we sort, and box up the clothing until August when we hold a public clothing distribution at Brighton Heights Reformed Church. In 2015, we served 1,295 individuals and their families. For more information, contact New Dorp Moravian Church.
Our churches collect non-perishable food items all through the fall. This year, we used these contributions to fill around 70 baskets which are given out to families in need during the Thanksgiving holiday. For more information, contact New Dorp Moravian Church
