Sunday Worship | In the Wilderness with Jesus
Sundays at 9am & 11am in English, 12:30pm in Spanish

Over the five Sundays in Lent, we will explore Jesus’ experience fasting in the desert for 40 days, looking into this account in the Gospel with greater depth, from a variety of perspectives, and drawing connections to other parts of the Bible. Join us on the journey in Sunday worship throughout Lent.

Bible Studies | Into Exodus
Mondays at 6pm | Worship and Bible Study in Spanish
Wednesdays at 7pm | Bible Study in English

Follow the Israelites through the wilderness in Exodus in our weekly Lenten Bible study. We’ll explore the significance of this journey, its connections to Jesus’ 40-day fast in the desert, and its connections to our Lenten practice today.

Can't make it to Advent one of these evenings? We'll be opening up the opportunity to participate from home using Facebook Live. Follow us on Facebook and check in at the time of the Bible Study to join us!

Sunday Conversations | Devotional Practices
Sundays at 10:10am in the basement fellowship hall

During Lent, our Sunday morning adult conversation will explore various devotional practices rooted in wilderness scripture. Join us in the basement fellowship hall between 9am and 11am worship to learn and discuss a new devotional practice each week.
Ash Wednesday on February 14
Worship Times | 12pm in English, 6pm in Spanish & 7:30pm in English

Terris Krueger's Ordination at Advent
Saturday, February 17 | 10:30am

Terris "Terry" Krueger has accepted a call to his first congregation, St. Mark's Evangelical Lutheran Church in Bloomfield, Nebraska, and he is being ordained here at Advent this month! Some of you may know or recognize Terris from the time he spent at Advent doing his seminary field work, and later serving as our interim office administrator.

We are so happy to celebrate this great milestone with him, and to see him begin his pastoral ministry. Terris recorded a quick video inviting you to his ordination! Watch it here.
