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!

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
