Pastor Danielle's Installation This Sunday
The RSVP's are flooding in on our website and Facebook. Clergy are readying their vestments. The Advent Chorale, and a group of young singers from Pinecrest youth leadership ministry, are rehearsing their musical offerings. And Pastor Stephanie Kershner, a friend of Pastor Danielle's and former seminary intern here at Advent, is writing her sermon.

This Sunday's Installation for Pastor Danielle promises to be a wonderful occasion. Join us in formally installing Pastor Danielle as the senior pastor of this congregation in worship, prayer, and song this Sunday, October 1 at 4pm.

Blessing of the Animals
A worship service for you and your best non-human friend.

Our pets are our best friends and part of God's beloved creation. Why can't they join us in worship every now and then? Join us for this special service, based in a long-standing tradition, that invites animals into the sanctuary to receive a blessing. It will be at 1pm Saturday, October 7.

Our canine companions can also look forward to a special treat from the non-profit Invictus, who shares our kitchen space. Learn more >
