Let’s face it, building community in the Twin Cities can be a little daunting. Advent’s Young Adult Ministry is a welcoming group of 20–30 somethings seeking authentic friendships, rewarding work, and nurturing communities. We support each other’s growth at happy hours, retreats, and outreach service opportunities. We engage in conversations about vocation, race, justice, love, sexuality, God, housing, care of creation, and much more. We live into our roles as community leaders, balancing action, rest, and fun.  For more information or to join this group, please contact Pastor Elizabeth at

"Dwelling In Christ"
Led by Carla Waterman

magine you are the Apostle Paul. You are trying to find language to speak of the risen Christ now dwelling with, in and through God’s people. What images do you choose? What pictures do you paint to help first century people grasp this new, startling reality? And how do Paul’s images in the first century help us understand our own life in Christ?

This Lenten Adult Forum will explore Paul’s imagery of “indwelling” coupled with relevant prayer practices that will help us center our minds and hearts on the reality of Christ’s indwelling presence in our lives. This class will invite participants to explore new ways to practice Christ’s presence in everyday life.

Week 4) “Walk as children of light” (3/19)
Week 5) “Put on the armor of God” (3/26)
Week 6) “You are God’s workmanship” (4/2)
