Welcome to Calvary Moravian!
For generations, Moravians from around the world have been guided by these words:
“In essentials, unity;
in non-essentials, liberty;
and in all things, love.”
Since 1889, Calvary Moravian Church in Downtown Winston-Salem has been bringing worshipers and the community together in Unity, Liberty, and Love. As a congregation, we aspire to answer His eternal call to Serve one another, the community, and the world we share.
- We Unite in our belief in one God: Creator, Son, and Holy Spirit.
- We celebrate the Liberty we each have in our daily walks of faith.
- We rejoice in the Love God has shared with us through his Son, Jesus Christ, and strive to share it with others.
- As an essential part of our faith, we come together to Serve as we’ve been called to by Jesus Christ.
Our active community is made up of all ages and walks of life, and we welcome anyone in search of an engaging, welcoming Christian community fellowship. We have many different ministries to nurture our members in their walks of faith.
As Moravians, we emphasize faith as a daily walk, giving particular emphasis to service to our Winston-Salem community, as well as the Moravian Church’s global missions.
Our worship services are typical of most traditional liturgical churches. We use liturgies, scriptural prayer forms which are responsive in nature, and we sing the traditional hymns of Moravian worship.
Everyone in the community is welcome to participate in communion when it is offered throughout the year, as well as in our traditional Christmas Eve Lovefeast and Candlelight services held every December 24th.
We are actively engaged in our Winston-Salem community, and we are open to learning about how we may be of service to you and your organization.
Please take a tour of our site to learn more about us, and let us know if you have any questions.
OUR STAINED GLASS
The stained glass windows that surround you when in the sanctuary at Calvary. depict either an event in the life, death, and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ, or one of His teachings.
When you worship with us, look to these windows for inspiration, peace, hope, grace, and more.
Be silent as you reflect on one, some, or all of the windows. Dwell with the spirit. Consider your faith journey, and how it has led you to this point.
If a picture tells a thousand words, what are these images saying to you? Hover over each picture and think about the questions posed to you.
These majestic windows were made by Payne Studios of Patterson, New Jersey over a period of more than 20 years. The last was commissioned in 1942.
