Our Self-Study Task Force Is Listening

Share your perspective and help us describe Advent to potential new pastors.

You're invited to complete a short survey about who we are as a congregation. This survey will help our Self-Study Task Force complete our Ministry Site Profile, the primary document potential pastors will receive to learn about our church during the call process. Please take a couple minutes to complete this survey online using the button below. Paper copies will also be available in both English and Spanish at worship and in our office. You can also complete the online survey in Spanish. The survey will be available for your response until Tuesday, April 19.

A Church That Heals Strangers

Join us in advocating for U.S. funding to help this hospital operated by The Lutheran World Federation.

Augusta Victoria is the first and only hospital to provide radiation therapy for cancer patients in the Palestinian territories and is the only medical facility in the West Bank offering pediatric kidney dialysis. The hospital faces on-going cash-flow problems as a result of the inability of the Palestinian Authority (PA) to pay the fees of the cancer patients it refers to the hospital on a regular basis. It has received vital support in recent years from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID)--in great thanks to the many ELCA members who spoke out to their members of Congress. Please join us and other ELCA churches across the country in making sure that Augusta Victoria Hospital continues to get support from USAID in 2016. The button below takes you to a simple form provided by the ELCA to message your senators and representatives.

 
 
 
 
Mission of the Month

In April our Mission Envelope will support Lutheran Ministries in Higher Education and their two ministries for college students in NYC: The Vine NYC and LaMP.

These new, growing programs are reaching college students--and engaging them in community and faith--in fresh and exciting ways. Starting next week you'll have the opportunity to support their ministry by donating online right from this e-letter throughout April.
