What to Expect

 
Friedberg currently offers a “Traditional” worship service, which typically involves the congregational singing of hymns from both Moravian tradition and general Protestant tradition. Services typically lat an hour and 15 minutes and  follow a particular “order,” or program, yet we are not strictly against changing elements around if we are so led. The music ministry of the service is led primarily by our Senior Choir, with musical selections from many of today’s top choral composers and arrangers. In that regard, our “traditional” congregational hymn-singing is married with the more contemporary anthems and special music of our choir, soloists and guest musicians. Occasionally we will partake in the prayer of a “liturgy,” which, in the Moravian Church, is a type of call-and-response congregational prayer mixed with hymn stanzas.
 

Children’s Worship and Care

A nursery is provided for infants and toddlers through 3 years of age. Children ages 4 through second grade attend the beginning of the worship service until after the children’s sermon, at which time they are invited to attend Children’s Church, where they experience worship and Bible study through various activities, music and prayer.Children and youth from third grade and higher attend the regular worship service.
