Our Summer Preaching Series Has Begun

We hope you'll enjoy a refreshing twist on our sermons this summer.

On Sunday Pastor Ann kicked off our summer preaching series, covering Old Testament stories traditionally used at the beginning of the Easter Vigil worship service, with a thought-provoking sermon on the creation story in Genesis. The Bible stories featured in this preaching series rarely make it into the regular Sunday rotation of readings and sermon topics, so this summer presents a chance to hear something unique.

This Sunday we'll get to hear Ross Murray, the program director of GLADD and recently consecrated as an ELCA Diaconal Minister, preach about the "Gift of Wisdom" passage in Proverbs. Throughout the Summer, we look forward to having Pastor Whitlock, Pastor Mills, Pastor Sudbrock and Pastor Tiemeyer reflect with us on more Old Testament stories like the (almost) Sacrifice of Isaac, the Crossing of the Red Sea, Noah and the Great Flood, Jonah and the Whale and the Valley of the Dry Bones.

Come join us in worship for these special sermons. Even if you're out of town, you can follow along on our YouTube channel.
Now's the Time to Register for Summer Suppers

One multifaceted, interactive program for toddlers, children, teens, and adults? English and Spanish speakers? You bet. And it's going to be awesome.

We invite you, along with your friends and family, to join us Wednesday evenings for dinner and worship with people of all ages, speaking both English and Spanish, followed by Bible study in groups ranging from small children to adults. This is a moment for our whole congregation and community to come together, regardless of age, language, or regular worship time. How awesome is that?! We hope you'll be part of it.

The theme of each evening's gathering will focus on the same Old Testament story to be preached on the upcoming Sunday (see the article above for more details on our summer preaching series). Which means, for those of you who travel on summer weekends, you'll get to worship and reflect on the same Bible story everyone does on Sundays.

Summer Suppers begins on Wednesday, July 6. Register today! Even if you can’t make all six Wednesdays, we welcome you to register for the evenings you are able to attend. Program fees are minimal and scholarships are available, but all participants are asked to register so we know how to prepare.

Have a question? Ask our program director, Zachary. He's also our office administrator, so can be reached Tues-Sat from 10am-5pm at 212-665-2504 or admin@adventnyc.org

The Call Process

Now that our Ministry Site Profile is complete and submitted, thanks to all your survey responses and the work of our Self-Study Task Force, our call process has officially begun! The Ministry Site Profile is the document that will be shared with potential pastoral candidates. Our Call Committee will get similar documents with detailed information about the pastoral candidates. You can read our Ministry Site Profile on our website, or request a hard copy from our office administrator, Zachary, in person or at admin@adventnyc.org

Please be aware there are certain restrictions on what information the Call Committee can share. These are established by the ELCA and meant to provide appropriate protections for prospective pastors, their current congregations and us. We will provide as much transparency as possible throughout the whole process. 

Our Call Committee is happy to talk with you about your questions, thoughts and concerns at any time. You can talk to any member in person on Sundays (see their pictures and names above), or reach them by email at callcommittee@adventnyc.org

Mission of the Month: Feeding Ministries

We heard from the leaders and volunteers of our Community Lunch and Food Pantry programs in worship and at our 10:10am Adult Conversation on Sunday. Now we offer our responses.

Our feeding ministries provide assistance to hundreds of people in our neighborhood experiencing food insecurity. Funding for these ministries is anchored by donations from members of Advent and the community. We receive a few community grants, but they have been decreasing each year. All Mission of the Month donations in June will go to our Feeding Ministries. Hear from a guest at Community Lunch why this ministry is so important to her and others in our community.
