Worship Acknowledge The Gift

Every week you'll see Worship Ministry folks quietly setting the altar and lighting candles. They carry the banners, pass the plate, and read the lessons. Lord love the members of Advent's Worship Ministry who help us to give thanks! Whether it's with Altar Guild, Acolyte Service, Lay Reading, or Ushering, we've got a job for you, too...and we'd love your help! Can you carry a tune? Read below about our Music program.

For more details about our services and worship for children (ages newborn to 5th grade) and youth (grades 6-12), please go to the Children's and Youth Formation pages under the title of Education on the menu above.

Holy Eucharist Rite I (7:45-8:30)-this service is more akin to the traditional spoken version (no choir or music), retaining the use of "thee" and "thou," with only slightly updated versions of the Creed and the prayers.
Simple Family Eucharist (8:45-9:15)- this half-hour service is a great option for busy families. It includes two readings, child friendly music, and a sermon aimed at children's understanding of the world.
Holy Eucharist Rite II (10:15-11:15)-this is an updated version with music throughout the service and more optional prayer structure such as 'Prayers of the People'.

Music @ Advent

We certainly like to make 'joyful noise' here at Advent. Our Music program includes a Chancel Choir directed by Wilson Somers, and a Handbell Choir directed by Leon Spencer. The music program includes wonderful sacred music every week, annual Community Benefit concerts of sacred music and jazz, held several times throughout the year to raise money for community outreach.
