The 2022 Advent Devotional Guide is now available! .

To receive an email version of the guide, call Paula Hamlin at the church 252.752.6154, or stop by the church for a printed version.

The guide itself was brought to life by all of the volunteer and staff contributors of art, photos, and written devotions.


Advent Honorariums and Memorials

Honor a loved one this Advent Season by purchasing a $15 potted poinsettia in honor or in memory of family, friends, and loved ones. We plan to use 50 poinsettias to decorate the church for Advent. You will be able to pick up your poinsettias after our Moravian Love Feast service on December 18.

You may also make a contribution to the Pastor’s Discretionary Fund, given in honor or memory of a loved one. These funds assist people in need throughout the year.

Please Click HERE to fill out the order form. Please bring your payment to the church by Monday, December 12.
