At Advent, our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

As disciples, we believe it is important that we gather in worship together, grow in groups, and go in service to our community and world. Discipleship is a journey that requires us to take steps in our walk with Christ! We are called to Gather, to Grow, and to Go!

So, how can you take the next step?


Growth Happens in Groups

LifeGroups provide adults an opportunity to connect in smaller communities, to dig deeper into God’s word, and to grow as an individual and as a community.

As disciples, we are called to serve our community and world by giving of our time and using our gifts to help further our mission of making disciples for the transformation of the world.

We are excited that you are interested in serving at Advent and ask that you complete our interest form so we can help you get connected in service!



Your generosity helps transform the lives of people within our congregation.

There are many young people participating in LifeGroups through our Advent Kids and Advent Student ministries. We have choirs, handbells, and bands that engage the youngest of members to the oldest. We are also a tithing congregation which means that at least 10% of our operating budget is dedicated to Missions.


To become a member at Advent, you must participate in the seven-week study, A Disciple’s Path. This study explains what it means to be a disciple in the United Methodist Church and helps create communities of people at Advent! It also examines each of the five promises you make when joining the church; committing to be faithful to the church with your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness.
