Our mission is to love God, grow in Christ, and share the Holy Spirit through worship, fellowship, discipleship, ministry, and evangelism.
Through the decades of changing life-styles, the traditions of Moravians have remained unchanged. These meaningful traditions echo our rich heritage and reflect our Christian commitment. Edgeboro Moravian Church is a church that truly celebrates Moravian values and customs through the continuing observance of these traditions
One traditional that Edgeboro Moravian Church always takes part in is, the Christmas Putz.
The word “Putz” is taken from the German word “putzen”, meaning to arrange a decoration. Moravians use this name for Christmas scenes they make in their homes. Early Moravians would prepare these displays and then go “putzing” to view fellow Moravian displays.
Edgeboro Moravian Church in Bethlehem prepares the traditional Putz every November. Putz is a display sharing the story of Jesus’ birth in sights and sounds. Members of the church and volunteers work together, rolling newspaper, wetting the paper, placing it on the display, then covering everything with live moss. Figurines, settings and lights.
