We would love to speak with you about the sacrament of baptism, your role as a parent in the faith formation of your child, and what to expect during the service of worship. We encourage you to become an active part of Advent should you have your child baptized here, so that we may fulfill our promise to help you raise your child in the Christian faith.

What does a typical Sunday morning look like?

On Sundays we offer a 9:30 am worship service which can be attended in-person, via live stream, or the service can be watched anytime here.

We offer a midweek service on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Viewers are invited to enjoy it as a livestream at that time, or as a recording as it fits their schedule.
