WHERE TO SERVE

At Church

Do you want to be more involved at Advent? Fill out your information and interest area here to volunteer.

Indicating that you have a possible interest in an area only means that you are interested to learn more about it, not committing you to it. We will contact you with more information.

Our Community

C.R.O.S.S.

Christians Reach Out in Social Service is an interfaith outreach ministry that provides both food and clothing to those in need.  Advent is a member of C.R.O.S.S., and donates food and specific monthly in-kind donations throughout the year. 

The Nest Backpack Program

Advent is partnering with Osseo Senior High to provide weekend backpacks of food and other necessary hygiene items. The pantry and packing bags takes place in Advent's Education Wing. You can send The Nest an e-mail to find out more information.

Gift of Love

During the year, Advent supports ministries that are in our community, in our state and nation, and throughout our world. Using our Gift of Love, we are able to focus our support and build relationships with organizations that receive our support.  

In 2020, we supported CROSS Services, the ELCA’s COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, and the Osseo Area Schools Homeless Student Program. We support these organizations through financial and in-kind gifts, collected through food and clothing drives.  

If you are interested in supporting the Gift of Love with a financial gift, please contact Business Manager, Lisa Fish at lisafish@adventlutheran.com

If you are interested in volunteering on a committee to help plan and implement our benevolence through the Gift of Love, please contact Pastor Peter at petercs@adventlutheran.com.

Loaves and Fishes

We have committed to providing a hot meal to those in need on the third Monday of even months.  This well-organized program (with opportunities for families!) entails an evening that is divided up into shifts of food preparation, food serving, and clean up.  Register to serve!  

World

As it has throughout its ministry, Advent will continue to contribute to Lutheran World Relief and its extensive global programs. Learn more about those programs here: https://lwr.org/
As part of our Renew Advent Capital Campaign, Advent is pledging gifts totaling $50,000 by the year 2023.
