Summer Suppers Pre-Event
 
 
 
 
This Sunday, May 28, you and your family are invited to a special Summer Suppers pre-event during our regular Sunday School hour from 10-11am. The intergenerational event celebrates the diversity of individuals who make up our community at Advent.

Our members come from all over the world, and from right here in the City. Each brings a unique background and perspective that enriches our ministry.

Kids and adults alike can plot their journey to Advent in a special activity taking over the front half of our basement fellowship hall, involving maps, ribbon, and a dinner table. You can also enjoy some root beer floats, and learn more about our intergenerational, bilingual Summer Suppers program. Come join us this Sunday!

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. 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.

Clean-Up Day Next Saturday
 
 
 
 
Our Clean-Up Day next Saturday, June 3 is not just for adults! We'd love to see some youth and families helping to spruce up our worship space and building, too. We will do dusting, window cleaning, pew cleaning, and other woodwork. You can sign-up for one or more of the two-hour cleaning shifts -- 11am to 1pm, 1pm to 3pm, or 3pm to 5pm.

ELCA National Youth Gathering
 
 
 
 
Planning for our youth group trip to Houston for the ELCA National Youth Gathering in summer 2018 has officially begun! This is an incredible, faith-building event bringing 30,000 Lutheran youth together for worship, learning, fun, and service alongside the residents of Houston. I hope many from Advent will be able to take part in this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

I'll be in touch personally with each family that has a teen eligible to attend to discuss dates, travel, budget, fundraising, and answer all your questions. But for starters, you can learn a great deal by exploring the Gathering webpage.
