On Sunday, May 3, St. Philips Moravian Church, 3002 Bon Air Ave. (corner of Bon Air & 30th St.), will celebrate its 193rd Anniversary.

The 11 a.m. service will be conducted by the children in the LOGOS program (St. Philips and Trinity Moravian churches).

A Moravian Lovefeast and musical program will be held at 4 p.m. Sunday.

The church started in a log cabin in 1822 in what is now Old Salem, moved into the brick church in 1861, also in Old Salem, and today worships at 3002 Bon Air Ave. in north Winston-Salem (Sunday services are held every fifth Sunday in the brick church).

The over 150-year old historic brick church is the oldest active African-American Church in North Carolina and one of the oldest in the country.  It is also the site where the ending of slavery was proclaimed on Sunday, May 21, 1865.

Everyone is invited to this special occasion. Rev. Russell May is pastor.
