2020 Children's Festival (Virtual)
Due to the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic,
we have moved this year’s Children’s Festival to a virtual format.
Gather your little ones and those young at heart for a virtual Children’s Festival and Lovefeast! We are excited to be offering this event for the 7th year, especially during this uncertain time!
Together, we will learn the history of a Moravian tradition that we all hold dear to our hearts: our lovefeast! We will participate in a unique litany, sing songs with some special guests, and get our bodies moving with a Story and Stretch!
In August, we will release a special Children’s Festival and Lovefeast YouTube link. We ask that you gather supplies for a lovefeast at home (juice box, milk, cookies, or bun) and watch the video with us on Sunday, August 16th, 2020 at 2:00 PM ET. While the video could be watched at any time, we encourage you to view it at this day and time so we can all gather (virtually) in the Spirit together.
As with previous Children’s Festivals, we will create a commemorative item for the Moravian Archives. We have commissioned a special coloring page to honor this unique time. We will include the page on our website to be downloaded, colored, sent to the BCM, and compiled into a scrapbook.
As more information about the event becomes available, we will update this page and announce it in our weekly e-news and on our social media. If you have any questions, contact Beth Hayes.
