Join the celebration and get your Christmas season in gear!

The Moravian Love feast is based on the Agape feast and the meals of the early churches described in the Bible in the Acts of the Apostles, which were partaken in unity and love. Traditionally for European, Canadian, and American Love feasts, servers serve a sweetened bun and coffee to the congregation in the pews.

When the Moravians traveled North Carolina in the 18th century, they brought with them this tradition.  Settling in the Piedmont region of the state, the Moravians still celebrate this occasion on the first Thursday of December with food, fellowship, and song.
