Renew Advent


Out of gratitude for God’s gifts to us and with confidence in the future God has promised, the people of Advent have made a new commitment to one another. In early 2020, Advent’s voting members approved a $1 million campaign for Advent that would focus on the following three priorities:
  1. Deferred maintenance repairs to the building and the property, totaling an estimated $475,500

  2. Property improvements, including a covered front entrance, estimated at $777,958

  3. Ministry partner support, sharing a tithe of our $1 million goal, totaling $222,042
