Parish Life - Today

Parish Life at the Church of the Advent truly makes good use of the unique gifts God has given each of us. In our busy lives and in these uncertain times, it is more important than ever to provide opportunities for Christian fellowship and good works for both young and old.

 

Hospitality Guild

Our Hospitality Guild provides essential and delicious sustenance for Parish events. Open to men and women in the parish, members serve on the guild on an ad-hoc basis.

Budget, Finance & Stewardship

Budget, Finance & Stewardship helps the Vestry and Treasurer with the daily financial obligations and long range financial management of the Parish.

Buildings and Grounds

Buildings and Grounds maintains our historic properties with equal attention on efficiency and history. Seasonal work days and special tasks fill the year.

Newcomers Committee

The Newcomers Committee welcomes and hosts visitors and guests who are new to the parish.

Child Care

A fully-staffed nursery is available for children up to the age of 4 every Sunday during the 10:30 am service. The nursery is located in the Little House, directly behind the Parish House.

Men of Advent

The Men of Advent meet monthly to support each other through prayer and fellowship and to plan service projects.

 

Foyer Group Dinners

Inviting new members to the parish, reconnecting long-time parishioners to one another, supporting us all with God's gifts of laughter and love, these groups provide so much more than a simple meal. Foyer Groups are open to all parishioners throughout the year. The groups meet at parishioner's homes or another spot for dinner each month.

Mini Tours

Home tours have played a significant role in the Church of the Advent since the 1960s. Held several times each year, the Mini Tours raise significant funds for the Church and involves many parish and community volunteers.
