Advent 2022: People Get Ready
How can F&C help you get ready for Christmas this Advent Season?
Join in Fellowship
In addition to post-worship connections, we’ll gather to help decorate the church, swap cookies and enjoy the deacon’s Advent Tea.
Gather for Worship
Advent offers four Sunday mornings and a bonus Wednesday evening opportunity to gather and get ready for Christmas Eve and Christmas traditions and surprises.
Connect and Learn
Explorers Forum will be a time to learn more about the dreams and needs of our partners in mission near and far.
Sharing from our abundance through Fourth Sundays, Giving Tree, Christmas Joy and our weekly tithes and offerings.
A word of HOPE.
The Giving Tree benefits the Afghan refugee family we have supported since their arrival in Wilmington.
In addition First & Central offers these worship opportunities:

In the sanctuary at 4 p.m., join us for all-ages worship,
In the sanctuary at 8:30 p.m., the Chancel Choir, soloists, and David Schelat present a festival prelude, followed at 9 p.m. by candlelight Lessons & Carols with communion.
