These pictures represent some of our Ministries you can join as a member of Advent Lutheran Church. We have 9 ministry teams that you can review in the ministry teams drop down tab. They each have a unique job in the functioning of the church. These ten groups create all of the events, music, youth sessions, fellowship, and budgets for the church as a whole. Most members are a part of at least one of our ministry teams. Our teams make our church more organized and functional even in unexpected circumstances. We believe that our groups help our church stay balanced and successful.

The Children's Ministry is committed to an educational philosophy which is focused on Christ.
