Youth and Education
"Youth ministry: we're not in it for the income, we're in it for the outcome." We take pride in how much our children learn and grow during their time here. We learn about God and how we can serve, and play and have fun. Advent hosts Vacation Bible School, family game nights, lock ins, and service projects. Join us!

In 2022, we celebrated the Confirmation of some new young members, officially welcoming them as members of our church!
To view their Confirmation ceremony, watch the April 25th Service.
Youth and Education furthers the mission of Advent Lutheran Church ‘so all may know Christ’s love’ by:
Providing Sunday School and Confirmation classes.
Scheduling faith-based activities and service projects that help strengthen relationships within the congregation and the surrounding community.
Developing leadership skills by encouraging and welcoming youth of all ages to participate in the
day-to-day life of the Church.
Committing to a consistent and thoughtful program that provides staffing, both volunteer and/or paid, to plan, fundraise, and execute all education and youth activities.
