Hill Toppers Prayer Group
A new pandemic program sponsored
by the First Moravian Church of Dover, in cooperation with the six Moravian churches in the Valley
Mondays ~ 10:30 – 11:30 a.m. + lunch
(Around an hour and a half together)
Over the years of walking this beautiful path of Light and life with God, we have read time and time again how the Lord Jesus, when he needed that time to recharge, refocus and reset, would often go to a hilltop alone, an out of the way place, to pray. There, on the doorstep of creation, he prayed. I invite you to join me outdoors on the top of Deis Hill in Dover, Ohio, at the amphitheater spot for prayer. There, we will gather with those who are interested in praying for the people of the flock, the community and the world. Water will be provided. We will have a portable prayer labyrinth on site to help us with this process of praying, thinking, and pondering our days on this beautiful path of Light and love in the midst of a pandemic. A prayer labyrinth is a creatively designed maze and tool that teaches us to walk the path of righteousness through a thoughtful and prayerful pattern. After our prayer time concludes, stay for a “pack your own” lunch for this prayerful hillside encounter! Come and join me for Hill Toppers Prayer Group. The dates and times slated are Mondays, 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. beginning on August 31, and including September 14, and 28, as well as October 5 and 19. (Think of this as a “fall-ish” Lenten Moravian Moment.) Here we can breathe in the fresh Spirit of God and enjoy the blessings of God’s marvelous creation as we pray for the world’s needs and concerns. Should the weather not cooperate, we will not gather because we would like the event to remain outdoors so that we can social distance. A mask should be worn for the event as well.
Pastor John B. Wallace
A Special Thank You
Hello Church Family,
July 24th and July 25th Troop 94 and myself constructed 1 paver patio with 2 benches and another paver patio with a bike rack for my Eagle Scout project. I chose this project as a thank you to my church family for supporting me throughout the years and for buying popcorn.
At this time, I would like to give an update of the project. The paver patio project is almost complete. The only work left is the engravings on the bench backs. I’m asking one last time for donations and pepperoni roll orders. Pepperoni Roll orders will be taken until August 9th and donations will be accepted through August 23rd. The project cost was approximately $2,475.00
Thank you for your donations and orders from your future First Moravian Eagle Scout.
