Ways to Serve
The easiest way to serve is to join us for a monthly church-wide mission project. Check the Events tab to see what's coming up. If you'd like to be involved in an ongoing ministry as part of a team here at Advent, check out one of these options!
Refugee Mentoring: Adventers are passionate about sharing the love of Jesus with refugees right here in our city. We participate with Lutheran Family Services as refugee family mentors. Our partnership with LFS is just beginning: contact Jennie Ridley at Jennie.firstname.lastname@example.org if you'd like to help!
Hirschfeld Towers Outreach: This public housing complex is in the heart of the Baker neighborhood, but it's on the margins of the neighborhood's culture and generally under-resourced. Our community-building outreach includes monthly game nights and a ride to church each Sunday. Dan & Jen Myers lead this ministry: contact them at email@example.com.
Women's Homeless Initiative: Adventers have helped staff this volunteer ministry - sponsored by Capitol Hill United Ministries - since its inception in 2011. Our team helps on Saturday nights once a month with cooking, serving, and building some relationships with the women. Emily Fitzrandolph leads our team: contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
More ideas? We have individual Adventers that adopt refugee families and teach ESL (English as a second language), among other things. Join these individuals to make a new team, or start up your own new ministry. The options are as wide as God's love and our passions: that's pretty wide!
