The Advent Social Outreach team organizes events that benefit the local community, and national and international efforts in humanitarian support. Throughout the calendar year, the team leads and participates in various fundraisers and "drives" which allow Advent members to share in giving, along with operating a food bank for the surrounding area.
The Social Outreach Committee is putting together baskets for Thanksgiving
Advent’s Social Outreach Team is again providing Thanksgiving Baskets for less fortunate families in our Westminster community. The Social Outreach team has received an Action Team grant of $250 from Thrivent in order to purchase all of the turkeys for the baskets. We are asking congregation members to donate money or grocery gift cards (i.e. King Soopers, Safeway, Target, Walmart, etc…).
We are asking for $25 gift cards, as that is the amount we will give each family to purchase the additional items to finish their Thanksgiving dinner. Cash, checks and gift cards can be dropped off at the church in the locked mailbox. Please designate that your donation is for the Thanksgiving baskets. Also, if you know of someone who deserves the blessing of a holiday meal, please contact Kate in the church office. If you have questions, please contact Chris Hanson at email@example.com
A note received from the Clear Creek staff:
A huge heartfelt THANK YOU!! to all for the gift bags donated to us at Clear Creek Care Center. It was very kind of you and lifted our morale! -Yours, Shana & the staff at Clear Creek
Advent’s Social Outreach team strives to share the hospitality and warmth of Advent with others so “All
May Know Christ’s Love”. The team organizes events throughout the year to so members of our
congregation can share their blessings with those less fortunate.
Our team is always looking to do more for our local neighbors in need. Through programs like the food
bank, the annual school supply drive, the coat drive, and the ornament tree that provides gifts for
children who might not have any on Christmas, we hope we are making life a little easier for our
We also strive to care for our brothers and sisters in the Rocky Mountain Synod and throughout the
world who are served by the E.L.C.A. We hold an annual fund raiser to provide ELCA global gifts and
encourage Advent members to contribute to Lutheran World Relief. Christ tells us to take care of our brothers and sisters. The Social Outreach team provides the opportunities for members of Advent to give to those who need to know that Christ and their neighbors care for them.
