A Marathon of Milestones
Pastor Sudbrock preached on the 56th anniversary of his ordination. Pastor Sarah Brown baptized her own granddaughter. We celebrated the life of Alicia Papaleo, a pillar of this church for decades, just the way she'd want us to -- with worship and a community meal. And, we formally installed Pastor Danielle as the senior pastor of our congregation.

Last Sunday was a momentous one. Read the stories, see the pictures, and hear the sermons from throughout this special day on our website.

Thank you, from Pastor Danielle
Dear Advent,

Thank you for being all in! Thank you for your willingness to partner in ministry! Thank you for your excitement! Thank you for your desire to make things happen! And even more so, thank you for your willingness to follow Jesus!

It is truly a joy to serve this congregation. Thank you for making my official installation so warm and full of life. A special thank you to the call committee and everyone who helped with the reception, to our worship leaders and chorale, and to our amazing staff. I look forward to the coming years together! Come Holy Spirit! We are ready to go!

God bless,

Pastor Danielle

Las Vegas and a Confession
By Pastor Danielle

Yesterday we woke up to the worst shooting in America, since the last one. Like many of you, upon hearing the news, I was frightened, heartbroken, angry and once again feeling uncertain about how to move forward. When something like this happens we ask ourselves, how can this be? Yet if we are being honest with ourselves, we aren’t all that surprised . . . Read more >
