Parish Life | Fostering Christian Fellowship

Parish Life Mission Statement

As followers of our Lord Christ, who is friend and companion, we the people of the Advent, are called to share with one another the joys and responsibilities of Christian fellowship through hospitality, celebration, learning, creative expression, play and service.

Our Parish

We gather in His name—in large and small groups, in age-specific settings and intergenerational extravaganzas, in the church and on the lawn, to break bread and to break ground. Parish Life at the Advent is rich in opportunities to greet, gather, grow, and give. On a weekly basis or in once-a-year fashion, fun and fellowship opportunities for everyone abound. 

Click here to download a list of Ministry Opportunities. You will also find them in Satterlee Hall and the Parish and Community Life Center. Please return the completed cards to the church office. 

Hospitality is a spiritual gift, and the welcome is guaranteed to be warm at any and all Advent programs. Find a ministry that corresponds to your talent or family life that sings to your soul or simply encourages you to sing out loud!

Food is a central theme in our vast and varied programs. If you are gifted in the kitchen or simply willing to pitch in as you learn, there’s always good company to make the load light. The Advent kitchen really gets cooking each summer as dozens of women preserve Spartanburg’s tastiest fruits and vegetables for sale at the annual ECW Bazaar. This fair, held each November, brings together parish and community in support of the Episcopal Church Women’s mission, routinely raising tens of thousands of dollars to support outreach.
