There are many activities going on within and through Edgeboro Moravian Church, but we also have a great relationship with other community events and ministries. Below is a list of ongoing opportunities.

Volunteer: Food Outreach
  • We aim to serve one meal a month at one of our ministry partners Esperanza for Bethlehem or the Salvation ArmyTypically, 50-100 meals are served. One does not need to be an expert in the kitchen to help. Volunteers are needed not only for the kitchen, but also to provide hospitality to the children and guests.
  • We also aim to make peanut butter & jelly sandwiches twice a month to deliver at the Trinity Soup Kitchen and the Salvation Army. Typically, we make over 100 sandwiches each time. Our goal is to supply food for the guests to take with them after they eat their meal in order to sustain them through the day. During the sheltering months, we also provide brown bag lunches with sandwiches and some additional food for the Bethlehem Emergency Shelter.
