We look forward to you joining us for our weekly worship services! Each worship service has various ways for us to honor God, to express our thankfulness, and to learn how to live as Christ Jesus’ disciples. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we worship God together.
We praise God, with united voices, singing songs from the hymnal or by following the on-screen lyrics.
We are excited to be starting a new liturgy beginning October 1 called "A New Song". The liturgy music was written by Kimberly DeVries, a good friend of our Music Director, Colette Svanoe. Kimblery will be meeting with our musicians for a rehearsal prior to October 1 and will be in worship with us on Sunday, October 1. (She may even direct the choir!) Kimberly is a singer, songwriter, worship leader, and pianist. She is currentlly the Choral & Instrumental Director at Southwest Christian High School in Chaska, MN. We are looking forward to having her at Advent.
Just as Christ Jesus gathered with friends to share a meal, we too take and eat. God’s love is given “for you” to receive.
Our prayers during worship provide time to pray for the needs of the world, creation, and the church. The Lord’s Prayer is a vital prayer of worship.
We give offerings of money, prayers, and volunteering, as acts of worship.
Each week, the Bible is read. The pastor shares a message that communicates God’s Truth in relevant ways that will impact our lives.
God meets us wherever we are, during worship and daily living, with love, hope, and peace.
Instructions for connecting to live streaming worship on your television
In all that has changed recently in our world, there remains a calling to make joyful noise. Music uplifts, connects and soothes us. At Advent we will continue to explore ways to share these rich experiences with various ages and abilities within our community. We currently offer the following opportunities to share the gift of music.
If you would like to know more about these groups and their schedules, or participation in other worship arts, please contact Director of Music Colette Svanoe.
NewLife plays mostly contemporary Christian music with occasional hymn arrangements. The band consists of guitars, drums, bass, vocals, keys, and anything else our interested musicians can offer.
The Community Choir is for anyone in our worshipping and surrounding community ages 9th grade and up, regardless of musical experience. If you want to learn to make music and are willing to work hard and have fun, then all are welcome.
Rehearsals for the Advent's Community Choir are on Wednesdays at 7:15 pm.
Resound! is for anyone ninth grade and older. Previous handbell experience is a plus but is not required. Rehearsals are weekly with regularly scheduled performances monthly and at special times of the year.
Rehearsals for Resound! Handbell Choir are Tuesdays at 5:30 pm.
If the time commitment may keep you from joining one of our ensembles, but you would still like to share your gift of music, please consider doing so. Soloists or small groups are invited to share their gift of music during our worship services.
If you are a soloist or small music group that would like to share your gift of music during worship, please contact Director of Music, Colette Svanoe.
