Pastor's Welcome Hello, my name is Rev. John Fritts. I am sincerely grateful for the opportunity to serve as pastor at Advent Moravian Church. My wife, Anne, and I grew up in the Lehigh Valley, and we are happy to be back in the area after serving in Wisconsin and Central Pennsylvania. We are glad you visited us online. Here you can learn about the opportunities for spiritual growth and the welcoming faith community that awaits should you choose to visit our church in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Learn first-hand about our worship, fellowship, spiritual formation, and ministry. You are welcome to participate in our activities as you discover who we are and how we serve God and those around us. We are a warm church with many strengths. No one leaves Advent without connecting with caring, enthusiastic Christians. As a community of faith, we are always learning what it means to love God and care for one another. If you have questions or would like to learn more about our ministry and mission, please contact the church office. I would be happy to meet with you. Rev. John Fritts, Pastor
