Welcome to Advent. Peace be with you.

Our congregational focus is now--as it has been for more than 130 years-- on worship, service, formation and fellowship.

We're proud to carry on the traditions that have made us a vibrant parish for these many years. We're also a forward-looking parish committed to making Christ visible in our community and the world!

That said, there is a lot happening "under the steeple" and in our Fellowship Hall every week. We hope you might come discover Advent for yourself.

For now, we'll simply invite you to join us in the blessing of worship-- some Sunday soon--here at our Episcopal Church of the Advent. Take a look at our Worship schedule below to find a service that works best for you. 


Sunday Services

7:45-8:30 Holy Eucharist Rite 1

8:45-9:15 Simple Family Eucharist      

9:15-9:55 Fellowship Hour + Formation Classes

10-11 Holy Eucharist Rite II






Advent is Recording Our History!

And we need YOUR  help! Please join us during Adult Formation and Sunday School time (9:10-9:50) in the Fellowship Hall as we listen to and record your memories of Advent! We have such a rich history...we need to preserve it!
