Weekly Youth Activities


XCentric Sunday Formation/Sunday School (September-May)

Every Sunday morning from 10:10-11:05 a.m. student formation groups meet in the Church of the Advent Youth Center. Each quarter we reflect on biblical and theological topics using discussion, multi-media and the arts. We present a topic to the students; students relate the topic to their lives; students create/design content based on the topic; students present the topic through drama, art, music or another medium.

Sunday Evening Youth Group (September-May)

Every Sunday night during the school year we offer a time of gathering for games, service projects, prayer, and study for our High School and Middle School students. Sunday Night ConneXion Youth Group meets 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Advent Youth Center unless we're meeting offsite. Invite your friends for a night of fun and awesomeness!!

Basketball Ministry

The goals for our Advent Basketball Ministry are to provide well-organized opportunities for our youth to participate in sports, an environment for our youth and parents to share fellowship with friends old and new, to develop basketball skills, and to teach Christian values and good sportsmanship.  Young people in grades 1st-12th are eligible to play. As in years past, we’re sure all involved will enjoy these events, as we grow closer as a community in Christ.
