New Email for the Advent Care Team

New Email for the Advent Care Team

The Advent Care Team recently had a group email box created to streamline any care needs. This email box is monitored by the care team and depending on the need we will pull in the necessary team members to best handle the request. The care team continues to serve through prayers, cards, meals and prayer shawls. Please reach out to us at to learn more about how we serve our congregation.

Volunteers Needed for Children’s Worship This Summer

Just a reminder that there is no Sunday School for the summer! However, starting June 11th, we will be offering Children’s Worship at all three worship service June  18th, 25th, July 9th, 16th and 23rd. We will also offer it August 20th and 27th. Children ages 3 through 7 are invited!

In order for this to happen, we need people to serve!

This isn’t Sunday School – this is a time of worship and learning for our young preschool and early elementary age children. You’ll teach them about the parts of worship, sing, play games, read Scripture and respond with age appropriate activities! We need two people for each worship service. Please consider signing up for one or more Sundays. Questions? Email Anne Shelton at

You are welcome to serve once, twice, or as often as you’d like! Please  sign-up  here.

Advent HOOPS Basketball Camp


Advent United Methodist Church is hosting Advent HOOPS basketball camp for completed K5-5th grade students this summer!

If you are interested in your child growing as a Christian competitor, and working on basic basketball fundamentals such as dribbling, passing, and shooting, we would love for your child to join us July 26-28th from 9:00 am until 12:00 pm at Rocky Creek Baptist Church!

Additionally, as students grow in their understanding of what it means to be an athlete for Christ, they will partake in endurance drills and game-like scrimmages. Come join us for a week of Jesus-driven basketball!

A T-shirt and daily snacks will be provided.  Registration for campers is open! You can register here.

Students and/or Adults, If you would like to serve at Advent HOOPS Camp, please contact Carlie Peden at
