Recreation Ministries

Advent is an active church that believes in the importance of connecting through relationships with one another to strengthen our faith, both collectively and as individuals. Through programs such as our Advent Hoops basketball program, those connections can happen on the court, as well as on a softball diamond with our softball teams.

Likewise, we feel that our children and youth benefit greatly through the programs and experiences on the court or field. We are blessed with an outstanding Christian Life Center that is well suited for many types of indoor court related recreation. While a large part of our Advent Rec mission is involved with coordinating and sponsoring our Advent Hoops basketball program each winter, we also want to be a resource to help guide any of our congregation who feels the calling to lead a new sport or recreational endeavor. We want to hear how we can continue to challenge and nurture an active Advent Rec ministry. Please contact Bishop Scott, Chair of the Advent Rec Committee at [email protected] with your prayerful thoughts and suggestions.
