Current Focus

Outreach and Missions has always been important to the parishioners at the Episcopal Church of the Advent. In fact, some members began coming to this church because of the strong emphasis in Outreach and Missions in our Community. We hope you will enjoy seeing pictures, stories, and opportunities!
Outreach: Mary H. Wright Elementary School

Class parties, lunch or breakfast buddies, bulletin boards, book fairs, Christmas gifts, field day, 5th grade celebration day, Dr. Seuss Day, Tutoring, reading to classes

Please let us know if you are able to help this year in a classroom. If you have a teacher and grade preference or are interested in helping with other activities, please indicate that when you email us. We will contact you closer to the date to confirm all events. Thank you for supporting the MHW students and sharing God’s light and love with them!
