We lift our
hearts to
the lord

wherever you are on your faith journey

You are encouraged to “come as you are.”  We explore life in the light of God’s love through Scripture, message, music, prayer, and praise. Dress up or dress casual.  Sing boisterously or listen to the music and soak it in quietly. You are welcome just as you are at Advent Lutheran Church.

  • Worship Service Schedule

    Worship 10:00 am

    We offer Holy  Communion to all in attendance.

“Draw near to God, and he will draw near to you.”

– James 4:8

As a faith family, we gather to offer our songs of praise as well as our lamentations to the God who created us. We join together to hear God’s word in a holy space and meet at the Lord’s table to receive the grace that Jesus promised to each of His children.

It is important that everyone finds a welcoming and comfortable space that allows them to be open to God’s presence each week. Advent offers a unique worship style, blending traditional and contemporary formats and music. Our service begins at 10:00 in our sanctuary and includes Holy Communion each Sunday.

Special services are offered throughout the year. Some examples include:

  • Service of Remembrance
  • Blessing of the Animals
  • Lenten mid-week services

Lenten services each Wednesday include dinner and fellowship and drama. 


“Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the LORD with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn— shout for joy before the LORD…”

 – Psalm 98 4-6

Advent has a robust musical program that gives the congregation many different ways to either offer their own talents or enjoy the talents of their neighbors. We are definitely a community that loves music in many different forms which are clearly merged in our 10:00 am Sunday worship service where we gather as one family of God.

You are always invited to join this Advent family any Sunday and participate in a service which merges the spoken word with song. On any given Sunday, you could sing traditional hymnody and follow with contemporary Christian praise songs.

A thoughtful, carefully crafted sermon might illustrate the gospel reading, or a humorous skit may work as well. The music program is diverse and includes Sanctuary Singers, Dolce Ladies Chorus, Morning Chimes, Advent Ringers, Advanced Bells and Whack A Bell. Soloists from the congregation may also function as Cantors and Worship Leaders on Sunday mornings. While the presentation and form may change, the goal is always the same: to reveal and spread the good news authentically and lovingly.
