William Peace University Hosts Annual Community Moravian Lovefeast Service On Sunday, Dec. 8
Local Four-Year Baccalaureate University Invites
Community Members To Attend Traditional Holiday Religious Event
RALEIGH, N.C., Nov. 25, 2013 – William Peace University, a private four-year university located in downtown Raleigh, has announced it will host its annual community Moravian Lovefeast service on Sunday, Dec. 8 from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m. in Dinwiddie Chapel, located at 15 E. Peace St. Led by Rev. Dr. R. Lee Carter, Bennett Chaplain, the Lovefeast will feature special student, faculty and staff speakers. The service is dedicated to Christian love, and community members are welcomed to receive communion at the event.
Based on the Agape feast and meals of the early church described in the Bible, which were partaken in unity and love, a traditional Moravian Lovefeast features dieners (from the German word for servers) providing a sweetened bun and coffee to the congregation in the pews. Songs and hymns will be sung throughout the service, and the congregation can talk quietly with their fellow brothers and sisters in Christ about their spiritual walk with God.
The event is free of charge, but reservations are recommended. For reservations, click here.
“As we look forward to the holidays, we seek to share the spirit of the season with our community members,” said Debra M. Townsley, Ph.D., president of William Peace University. “Our annual Moravian Lovefeast is a special event we host as part of our celebration, and we enjoy this opportunity to develop our relationships with members of the university family and our neighbors.”
