Installation of the Rev. Kelly Moore

MOCKSVILLE — The Rev. Kelly Moore was installed as pastor at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Mocksville on May 6, at the 9 a.m. worship service with Holy Communion.
The installation was conducted by the Rev. Andrew Miller, Dean of Conference 9 of the North Carolina Synod, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America. Also participating were the Rev. David Guthrie, president of the Provincial Elders Conference of the Moravian Church in America, Carole Demmy, congregation president and Joseph Valliere, congregation vice-president and chair of the call committee.
Following the installation a brunch was held to honor Pastor Moore.
Pastor Moore was born in eastern Canada and raised in western Canada. Upon graduating from the University of Lethbridge with a major in Music Education, she moved to Bethlehem, Pa. to attend Moravian Theological Seminary to pursue her calling to be an ordained pastor in the Moravian Church. It was there that she met her husband, the Rev. Joe Moore.
Kelly was ordained in July 1998 and consecrated a Presbyter along with Joe in 2004. Together they have served in co-pastorates in Southern New Jersey, Mayodan, NC, Stone Mountain, Ga. and most recently at Fries Memorial Moravian Church, NC.
Kelly is also blessed to be the Chair of the Lutheran (ELCA) Moravian Church coordinating committee that helps foster our continued relationship and our journey to full Communion. In addition she is also one of the conveners of the Moravian Church’s Mental Health Round Table, a group that seeks ways to educate others on mental health and help end the stigma against it.
Pastors Kelly and Joe have a 12-year-old son, Zachary, and a dog, Amos. When not doing pastoral work, Kelly enjoys knitting, sewing, coloring and being with her family.
