German-English Advent Singstunde
December 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Bilingual worship service at the Old Chapel, Bethlehem
Join us for our annual German-English Advent Singstunde in the beautiful Old Chapel of Central Church in Bethlehem!
A Singstunde is a traditional Moravian form of worship in which the congregation unites in singing a series of hymn stanzas. The stanzas are selected to develop a specific devotional theme. A Singstunde is sometimes referred to as “a sermon in song.”
For this Singstunde Advent and Christmas hymns were chosen, that can be sung in either German or English. The Singstunde is hosted by the Moravian Archives, Central Moravian Church and the Moravian Music Foundation.

- Wie soll ich dich empfangen / How Shall I Meet You, Jesus
- O du mein Trost und süßes Hoffen / O Jesus, Grant Me Hope and Comfort
