Putting Love Into Action

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.  True love always involves action—it is a verb! That’s why, as individuals and as a congregation, we put a premium on gathering in worship, growing in groups, and serving in missions. We are known for not only what we say, but for what we do locally, regionally, and internationally. Those that come to Advent truly are the hands and feet of Christ, serving in any way they can.

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 backgrounds.

Next year, we are hoping to begin worshiping in the Scuffletown area with the addition of Advent Scuffletown. Advent Scuffletown is a community of people seeking to grow in our faith and serve others as we strive to be a part of how God is transforming the world. We hope this will be a place that people of all ages can call home. We hope to start weekly worship in 2022. In the meantime, we hope that you will join us for one of our events so that you can get to know us and we can get to know you. Learn More About Advent Scuffletown


The best way to get to get to know us is to come visit us!

We know that people experience God through different styles of worship, so we strive to do both traditional and contemporary worship with as much excellence as possible, offering God our best.

Sunday Mornings

For most people, Sunday morning worship services are the first introduction to Advent. Each Sunday morning we have two services in our Sanctuary:

9:00 am Traditional Service
10:30 am Contemporary Service

Get an idea of what our sermons are like by listening to our previous sermons.



Children ages 6 weeks–2 years are invited to participate in our Nursery Ministry. Children are cared for in a warm, loving environment by fully trained caregivers. We ask that all bags be labeled and no food other than formula or breastmilk be brought into the nursery.

The Nursery is located in the Education Building. Upon arriving, there will be a check-in station for Advent Kids where one of our Advent Kids Greeters will be able to greet you and to help you navigate our campus.
