Our Parish Community
Come to the About Us section to meet the staff of Advent, and find out what we're all about!
Support Advent's Outreach
Advent Episcopal Church reaches out far beyond our immediate boundaries to help those in need. It is very easy for Advent members to participate in these outreach efforts. By taking a few minutes to set up an account at Amazon.com, a certain percentage of the money you spend is donated directly to Advent. The same is true with an account at escrip.com, where you may link your grocery club cards and credit cards to your escrip account.
Visiting for the first time?
