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. 

Social gatherings in members’ homes include Fellowship Group, Baby Boomers, and 20s, 30s, 40s CONNECT. Be sure you’re on our email list to receive e-invitations to the group that best matches your age (although all ages welcome at any!). ECW (Episcopal Church Women) Circles for all ages meet regularly for fellowship, study and service. (Click here for Phoebe Crosland Lunch Bunch and Serendipity schedules). EpiscoPals, for all members 45+, meets 6 times a year for the best lunch in town (and only $6) as well as an entertaining program. (Click here for EpiscoPals 2017-2018 schedule and program.)  The Brotherhood of St. Andrew meets once a month on Sunday mornings for breakfast and a program. This group, for men of all ages, provides a monthly opportunity for fellowship and learning. (Click here for the Fall 2017 schedule.)

Click here to download a list of Ministry Opportunities called Connecting With One Another.  There are numerous ways to use your gifts at the Advent. These opportunities for connection provide tangible ways for us to serve Christ in this community of faith. Our hope is that you will find a ministry that corresponds to your passions and your talents.  

Hospitality is a spiritual gift, and the welcome is guaranteed to be warm at any and all Advent programs. We hope to see you soon!
