Confirmation
 
 
 
 
Congratulations to our Confirmation students on completing their first year of classes! They helped lead worship on Sunday, and received these study Bibles in anticipation of their second year of Confirmation which will focus on the Bible.
 
 
 
 
 
This Week in Sunday School
 
 
 
 
Join us at 10:05am this Sunday beginning in the sanctuary.

How big is God’s house? Human knowledge teaches us that every house is only so big, and only has a certain number of rooms. One of the lessons that Jesus taught us is that God’s house is not limited by anything – it is big enough for every person who ever lived.  What does that teach us about God’s mercy, forgiveness, and abundance? Check out Sunday school this week, where we will learn about what God’s Grace has to teach us, and all people, about Love.

ELCA National Youth Gathering
 
 
 
 
Planning for our youth group trip to Houston for the ELCA National Youth Gathering in summer 2018 has officially begun! This is an incredible, faith-building event bringing 30,000 Lutheran youth together for worship, learning, fun, and service alongside the residents of Houston. I hope many from Advent will be able to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

I'll be in touch personally with each family that has a teen eligible to attend to discuss dates, travel, budget, fundraising, and answer all your questions. But for starters, you can learn a great deal by exploring the Gathering webpage.
