Fellowship at First & Central


Join us for Coffee!
12:15 pm after Sunday Morning Worship

After Sunday morning worship members, friends and visitors gather at the front of our Sanctuary for coffee, cookies and conversation. Our Deacons provide the refreshments and are always available to assist visitors and members alike. Coffee hour is a time to greet one another, catch up with friends, check for those who need special prayers, pick up flowers to deliver to shut-ins, and to sign up for the many events and volunteer opportunities at First & Central.


Soup & Salad Luncheons
All-Church Luncheons are a great way to get together for fellowship! Visitors to First & Central are especially encouraged to attend. Get to know our members, friends and pastor. Plenty of good food, great conversation and joyful fellowship!


It Takes Two!
"It Takes Two" is a group of couples from First & Central who get together monthly for a time of fellowship, learning, sharing, and fun. The focus is on couples and their relationships. Every couple in a committed and healthy relationship is invited to attend with the understanding that folks will be open to sharing (within the limits of your own comfort) and willing to commit to regular attendance throughout the next year. Currently 14 couples meet on the 3rd Friday evening of every month (we take a break in the summer!) from 7:00 to 9:00PM. The schedule is available here and childcare is available for the evening! Contact Pastor Doug Gerdts for additional information (302-654-5371)!

Silent Auction, Dinner, and Variety Show!
This was a "first" in November of 2004 and was repeated on November 12, 2005. In both years, the congregation enjoyed a delicious dinner prepared by the Deacons, bid on items in a well-stocked silent auction (to benefit our Habitat for Humanity Unity Build project), and enjoyed the talents of the congregation!

Gingerbread House Construction!
A brand new tradition at First & Central is the constructtion and decorating of graham cracker "Gingerbread Houses!" This is an intergenerational event which includes and attracts a wonderfully diverse group of people and families. It's typically held on the Third Sunday of Advent (December 11, 2005) beginning with a light supper at 5:30PM.
