SantaHatchie 2017 Christmas Mission

SantaHatchie 2017 Christmas Mission
Evening of December 20-Evening of December 22

On Wednesday evening, December 20 through Friday evening, December 22, Advent will host a local mission called SantaHatchie. Advent UMC will reach out into the community to share the love of Christ with our neighbors as Christmas approaches. Our goal is to make homes drier, safer and warmer!

During SantaHatchie, we will provide breakfast and lunch each day. We are asking that each person pay a $10 registration fee to Advent UMC to help offset the cost of the meals. Long sleeve T-shirts are also available for $10 each and are available to order through the registration form. Registration and T-shirt fees should be turned into the Advent church office Monday-Thursday from 9am until 5pm or Friday from 9am until 1pm. All participants will sleep in their own homes and not at the Advent Christian Life Center!

Elementary and Middle School Students are invited to participate in SantaHatchie WITH a parent.

We look forward to serving alongside of you during SantaHatchie!

Deadline to Register is December 10th!

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 [email protected] to learn more about how we serve our congregation.
