Christmas Tree Fundraiser this Saturday
 
 
 
 
This Saturday our Christmas Tree Sale fundraiser kicks off the Advent season in all kinds of festivity. Christmas trees, caroling on the steps, hats, bells, and fundraising for our partner college student ministry, LaMP. If you can help us set up, sell trees, sing Christmas carols, or just spread Christmas cheer outside Advent on Broadway, please come volunteer with us this Saturday.

Can't make it this Saturday? We're having a second sale the next Saturday morning, December 9.

Tithing | Pastor Danielle
 
 
 
 
In this video, Pastor Danielle talks about her and her husband Joel's decision to tithe, which means giving 10% of your income to the church. Joel was in medical school. Pastor Danielle had just finished seminary and had student debt. And Pastor Danielle was looking for a job. So why and how did they do it?

Make a Stewardship Commitment for 2018
 
 
 
 
As we use this time to grow in our awareness of and gratitude for everything God has given us, we also invite everyone who is part of this faith community to discern how you will give your financial gifts, time, and talents to God's mission at Advent in 2018.

We know it's a big decision. We ask you move forward in faith that God is bigger, knowing God's work is bigger. We challenge you to be generous, to be visionary, to trust that God will provide. Making a commitment now strengthens our ministry because our 2018 budget is based on these stewardship commitments.

You can fill out a commitment form quickly and confidentially online, using the button below or anytime on our website under "Giving." Thank you for discerning, for trusting, and for giving. We are going to do amazing ministry in 2018.
