The Lenten Season Is Here
“Remember that you are dust, and to dust you will return” - these are the words we hear each year on this day. Words that propel us into the season of Lent.

A time of reflection. A time of relentless honesty about ourselves and our motivations. A time to draw closer to God. A time to soak in God’s unending mercy. We begin this time each year with these words that pierce through all of the things we might think we are to remind us of our common origins and the end that we each will eventually meet. To remind us of whose we are - no more or less than God’s . . .

Journey Through Lent with Advent Lutheran Church
In addition to Sunday mornings, here are three ways to journey with Advent through the season of Lent:

+Discipleship Groups: Discipleship groups are an opportunity for you to explore what it means for you to be a disciple of Jesus. This is the last week to sign up. See the 5 times offered and sign up for a group >  

+Sunday Lenten Faith Formation Series: Our Sunday 10:10am Adult Faith Formation series during Lent explores racism and the Church, leading to an introduction of our partnership with the Emmaus Collective. See the full Adult Faith Formation series schedule >  

+Lenten Daily Devotion: Our Lenten Daily Devotion this year has daily reflections and practices that take you deeper into our Lenten theme day by day.

Sign up for Listening Small Group
It's here! The Listening Stage of our visioning process starts Sunday, March 24. 

The Vision Team is excited to invite you to participate in Round 1 of our Listening Small Groups!

Listening Small Groups are spaces for the Vision Team to listen and learn as we engage in deeper conversations about faith, life, and Advent. In our groups, we hope to discover new insights about our congregation, community, and ministry here.

We'll have two rounds of small groups, March 24 - April 13 and April 22 - May 12.

Signups for Round 1 are ready! We have 5 scheduled sessions in Round 1, plus an option to suggest an alternate time if none of the 5 times work for you. We hope you'll join us for a Listening Small Group as we continue our journey exploring Advent's shared mission and vision together.
