Welcome to the
Church of the Advent.
Summer at the Advent includes a slower pace of life and programing, but there are many highlights to celebrate. We have honored our youth and graduates on Youth Recognition Sunday. The Confirmation class had a glorious confirmation service in May, and the parish recognized and honored them on June 12th. We also had a great day of fellowship at our Parish Picnic.
In July, we had our first Evensong service in many years. Eric and the choir did a wonderful job bringing the bueaty of holiness to our community.
In August, we look forward to celebrating the feast of St. Mary which this year will also be our annual Slip and Slide Sunday. All the children get to wear bathing suits to church and slide on the front lawn after the Eucharist.
We will again be co-sponsoring Vacation Bible School with our Baptist and Congregationalist friends. More information can be found on the right hand side of this page.
The Advent is a loving and faithful community that seeks to follow Jesus in our often chaotic modern world. We worship the Lord in the "beauty of holiness" with theologically rich liturgy and a warm, joyful spirit. I encourage you to make the Church of the Advent your new spiritual home. We will all be better for your presence.
Marc Eames, Rector
