Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center will hold its annual Moravian star lighting ceremony at 5:45 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 6.
Since 1992, Wake Forest Baptist has celebrated its holiday spirit with the Winston-Salem community through the 31-foot Moravian star atop the Medical Center’s North Tower. The one-of-a-kind star has 27 points that range in length from 7 to 11 feet and weigh from 30 to 65 pounds each. Each of the 27 points is illuminated by a 100-watt bulb.
The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on the top level of Wake Forest Baptist’s Eden Terrace parking deck off Hawthorne Road.
Music will be provided before and during the event by the Medical Center Chorale and a Moravian band, led by the Rev. Nola Reed Knouse, Ph.D., director of the Moravian Music Foundation. There will be a brief worship service led by the Rev. Russell Williams of Union Cross Moravian Church and a performance by the church’s children’s choir. Hot apple cider and Moravian cookies will be served.
