  • Moravia Presbyterian Church (State Rt. 18, Wampum, PA) now has a Saturday evening Contemporary Worship Service at 6 pm.  Part of our reason for doing this during the summer is to provide people an opportunity to worship when they cannot attend their own congregation because of a Sunday picnic or reunion etc.
