Toddlers Who Volunteer
4-year-old Evy has been part of our Food Pantry ministry since a very young age: her mom, Frankie, was here handing out bags of groceries on her due date. Since then, Evy has logged over 200 volunteer hours before starting Kindergarten.

Read the full special story about how Evy and other children are learning about helping others first-hand through our Food Ministries.
Summer Suppers Registration
Wonderfully diverse individuals, coming from many parts of the world and all walks of life, have found their way to Advent, where God is weaving together our unique passions and stories in amazing ways.

This is the reality of our new intergenerational, bilingual program, Summer Suppers. It calls young and old, English-speakers and Spanish-speakers to the same table to know each other better through dinner, worship, and Bible study.

Summer Suppers will be on Wednesday evenings from July 12 through August 16, is open to all ages, and will be in both English and Spanish. We invite you to register at this time! You can view the full schedule and register online on our website, or pick up a registration form on the back table in the sanctuary.

Annual Congregational Retreat this August
Everyone who attends our annual retreat at Koinonia leaves so glad that they went. Why? Because it gives them the opportunity to make friends and get closer to people in the congregation. Because a weekend in the beautiful landscape of Koinonia refreshes the city-worn soul. Because you experience God at work in the abundance of life in nature and in the community present.

Plus there's boats, goats, campfires, s'mores, hikes, early morning coffee, late-night board games, and all the other fun that comes with our weekend retreat at Koinonia's Retreat Center.

So consider joining us the weekend of August 4-6 this summer. We'd love to have you with us. Learn more about travel, costs, housing, programming, and registration on our website.
