“...you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul,
and with all your mind, and with all your strength. The second is this, ‘You shall
love your neighbour as yourself’. There is no commandment greater than these.”
“Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is
the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.”
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
“...and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God”.
These words from the Gospel of Mark, from the Apostle Paul and the prophet Micah provide a strong framework for our lives. I am guided in my life and my ministry by them.
Peace be with you! Welcome to the Advent Lutheran Church’s website and thank you for visiting!
We worship Sunday mornings at 10am. Our service is most often one of Holy Communion. At Advent we practice an open table of eucharistic hospitality for the invitation comes from Christ himself. When there is a 5 th Sunday in a month we have a service of the word and a hymn sing where all the hymns are congregation’s choice.
During the year we offer several special services ie. Ash Wednesday with a soup supper, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, All Saints, a Blessing of the animals in the fall, lessons and carols and services at 4 and 7:30 on Christmas Eve.
Christian Education is ongoing. In the winter 2020 we will look at the creation, formation and authorship of the New Testament. Groups meet either after worship on Sundays or on Wednesday mornings. During Lent there will be opportunities to explore a meditation workshop. In the spring the focus will shift to " Lutheranism 101" where we will discuss the basics of our faith - what is a Lutheran anyway?
Advent is a warm and welcoming congregation. We are also a reconciling in Christ congregation.
“The Church is the Church only when it exists for others...not dominating, but helping and serving.
It must tell men of every calling what it means to live for Christ, to exist for others.”
― Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters and Papers from Prison
