Moravian Morsels

When a member or family of the congregation is in need, they may contact the church office (626-8515) and ask for some assistance with meals. The Moravian Morsels' dedicated crew will prepare and deliver meals up to 3 times a week. Each delivery is large enough for 2 days of meals. Dietary restrictions are welcome. There is no charge for this service. Audrey Balmer is the coordinator of this important ministry.  Return to Top

The Lititz Project

The Lititz Project is a hometown mission project involving several churches in the Lititz area including Lititz Moravian. Helping neighbors with minor home improvements, clean-ups, etc., in the name of the Lord is the overall concept. Teams of volunteers paint, power wash, mulch, trim, repair, build, etc., to spread the message of love thy neighbor. Over the past years, LMC volunteers have completed between 6 & 10 projects per year. Sign-ups begin in February and projects are usually completed in June. For more information contact Ginny or Ed Journey.  Return to Top

READING MORAVIAN Center              

 Hub of Hope Food Pantry: Food is provided for about 100 families each month.  Volunteers are needed to receive the food deliveries and to organize the food bags and greet the families who come to receive the food.  Also plastic bags are needed.  The bags are doubled so the weight of the canned goods doesn't break them.  Additional activities include community and congregational dinners which are served once a month, and fall & winter used drive in October and November.  If you are interested in helping, contact Brenda Watson.

The Reading Moravian Center of the Lititz Moravian Congregation is located at 1116 Perry St., Reading, PA 19604. Questions? Call 610-374-0886.     Return To Top

power packs

Power Packs provides weekend food and nutritional information to families who are food insecure when the school’s lunch program is not available to them. Families are taught how to stretch their limited food dollars using the food provided by PPP. The goal of the program is to empower families to regularly provide healthy meals and that children return to school, well-fed and ready to learn. Power Packs provides long-term solutions to end childhood hunger.
