We look forward to you joining us for our weekly worship services! Each worship service has various ways for us to honor God, to express our thankfulness, and to learn how to live as Christ Jesus’ disciples. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, we worship God together.

Music

We praise God, with united voices, singing songs from the hymnal or by following the on-screen lyrics.

Holy Communion

Just as Christ Jesus gathered with friends to share a meal, we too take and eat.  God’s love is given “for you” to receive.

Prayer

Our prayers during worship provide time to pray for the needs of the world, creation, and the church.  The Lord’s Prayer is a vital prayer of worship.

Offering

We give offerings of money, prayers, and volunteering, as acts of worship.

Message

Each week, the Bible is read. The pastor shares a message that communicates God’s Truth in relevant ways that will impact our lives.

Online Worship

We are passionate in connecting with you during live-streaming worship services. The public chat provides a place to share God’s peace, post questions, praise God, and receive encouraging words with each other. A private chat also allows our host to pray with you. God meets us wherever we are, during worship and daily living, with love, hope, and peace.

Music

In all that has changed recently in our world, there remains a calling to make joyful noise. Music uplifts, connects and soothes us. At Advent we will continue to explore ways to share these rich experiences with various ages and abilities within our community. We currently offer the following opportunities to share the gift of music.

If you would like to know more about these groups and their schedules, or participation in other worship arts, please contact Minister of Music Dennis Wallisch.

NewLife

NewLife plays mostly contemporary Christian music with occasional hymn arrangements. The band consists of guitars, drums, bass, vocals, keys, and anything else our interested musicians can offer. Rehearsals are weekly, and all members are placed on a rotational schedule to allow for everyone to have a chance to lead worship.

Community Choir

The Community Choir is for anyone in our worshipping and surrounding community ages 9th grade and up, regardless of musical experience. If you want to learn to make music and are willing to work hard and have fun, then all are welcome. Due to COVID-19, all rehearsals and materials will be available online, and choir members will be asked to upload their performances for further production.

Resound! Handbell Choir

Resound! is for anyone ninth grade and older. Previous handbell experience is a plus but is not required. Rehearsals are weekly with regularly scheduled performances monthly and at special times of the year. 

Vocal/Instrumental Special Music

If the time commitment may keep you from joining one of our ensembles, but you would still like to share your gift of music, please consider doing so. Soloists or small groups are invited to share their gift of music during our worship services.

Children's Choirs

We invite all elementary aged children in our community to join us in learning about music in practice and performance and during weekly rehearsals via Zoom.
