Salem Congregation is continually adding and updating information on the Salem Moravian Graveyard Page in an ongoing project to make the current records as complete as possible. Please be aware that information may periodically be updated.
GREAT SABBATH MUSIC CD'S ARE AVAILABLE!!!
The music of the 2012 Great Sabbath Service was recorded for the purpose of making a CD for all of us to enjoy and be blessed. After many hours of work by Dr. Nola Reed Knouse, Frank Martin, and Drake Flynt, the CD is now available. It is labeled, GREAT SABBATH CHORUS AND ORCHESTRA: Music for a Moravian Great Sabbath. The music is mostly Moravian. The chorus and orchestra are under the direction of Drake Flynt of King Moravian Church and the organist is our Moravian sister, Mary Louise Kapp Peeples. IT IS WONDERFUL!! We hope that everyone will want to own one for personal blessings. This service is sponsored by Salem Congregation as is the CD. You may obtain copies at the Salem Congregation office, 501 S. Main Street in Winston-Salem; email: firstname.lastname@example.org; or telephone 336-722-6504. Each CD is $20.00 and can be mailed to you at no additional cost. A check and your address will be your order. The CD would make a fine gift, but more importantly it will be a blessing to Moravian music lovers.
EASTER GRAVESTONE CLEANING AND FLOWER PLACEMENT
Did you know that Salem Congregation provides a service where you can have your loved one's gravestone cleaned and a flower placed at their grave each year at Easter? For a one-time fee of $1,000, we will provide this service each Easter for 30 years. If you live out of town or are unable to perform this service for any reason, this can bring you peace of mind knowing that this caring act is being performed. For more information, call the Salem Congregation office at 336-722-6504 or email email@example.com and we will mail you an application.
THE WACHOVIA GARDENS
The Wachovia Gardens are grown on the site known as the Edward Belo property. Edward Belo grew flowers on the property in the mid 1800's. Many of the flowers grown by Mr. Belo were used in God's Acre for the Easter Sunrise Service.
The Wachovia Gardens were established in June of 2010 to promote genetic diversity and sustainable gardening practices. The gardens consist of heirloom fruits, vegetables and herbs. A colony of bees were added in 2011. The garden contains 25 heirloom apple varieties, 10 varieties of figs, plus apricots, plums, grapes and berries. During each growing season, over 100 varieties of heirloom tomatoes are grown along with other vegetables; beans, peppers, squash, greens, lettuces, eggplant, okra, sunflowers, carrots, beets, etc. All of the produce is donated to Sunnyside Ministries.
The garden is planned, planted, and maintained by a group of volunteers. Anyone who is interested in joining our efforts is invited and encouraged to join us on Tuesday evenings from 5:00 until dusk.

PETS ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THE GRAVEYARD
Although we love our pets, please remember that pets are not allowed in God's Acre or along Cedar Avenue. The "evidence" that is often left behind creates a health hazard to our water supply, a poor image of our graveyard as well as a hazard to mowing equipment. Please be respectful of this sacred place. Also be aware that City Ordinance Sec. 6-12 requires that you clean up after your pets.
