Advent was chartered in 1987 in preparation for the anticipated growth in the Five Forks area. As our zip code has grown, so have we, and thirty years later we are a large, vibrant congregation from a variety of faith backgrounds.
At Advent, we like to say that our mission is fishing, which is our shorthand way of saying our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. Discipleship is a journey of growing in love for God and love for others, and that is what we seek to do as individuals and a congregation.
We hope this website will give you a sense of who we are, but the very best way to get to know any congregation is to check us out in action. The best place to start is one of our worship services. Because we believe that worship is the heartbeat of the Church, we are committed to offering God our very best in worship.
At our Five Forks campus, we are committed to excellence in two different styles of worship: Traditional and Contemporary. Traditional services have a more formal feel, and the music features the organ, piano, and choirs. Contemporary services have a more relaxed feel, and the music features a band and occasionally a praise choir.
