Strengthening the community that we serve is fundamental to our mission. Of course, we are not alone.
Many different outreach programs exist. Take a moment to check out a few of the programs and missions below.
As a community, Anthony’s Plot strives to identify with the poor and disenfranchised through their living and work, to be intentional about bearing witness to Jesus and the interdependency of Christian community, to provide occasions for people to grow in faith and serve together, and to close the disparities between churches and our struggling communities relationally and tangibly through committed Christ-like actions. Rev. Russ May is a co-founder of Anthony’s Plot, and currently lives there with his family. Come and Worship supports Anthony’s Plot financially and voluntarily.
The Moravian Board of World Mission is the overseas (as well as in the US) mission sending and support agency of the Moravian Church in America.

Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Laurel Ridge offers summer camps, mission camps, year-round programming and rental facilities to communities of faith, non-profit organizations, businesses and individuals. We encourage the youth in our congregation to attend summer camp at Laurel Ridge to help with their spiritual formation. We also attend congregational retreats there.
