Current Focus Programs

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!
