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 collecting coats for Have-A-Heart.
You may donate coats in person on Sunday mornings or leave them in the closed container between the two sheds on the south-side of the church. If you have any questions, please let us know.
The God's Work, Our Hand's Project - Community Food Drive was a great success!
We were hoping for a pickup truck full of donations and instead we filled TWO pickup trucks and a small SUV with the donations for Growing Home. The amount above doesn’t include the bakery items that Pastor Rich brought on Saturday that was left over from his Food distribution. Half of the bakery items we took to Growing Home (who could only take that much because they have limited perishable food storage). So we took the remainder of the bakery items to Arvada Mission at The Rising Church in Old Town Arvada. Both Growing Home and Arvada Mission were very grateful for the donations given to them.
Thank you to everyone who donated school supplies!
We collected and filled three big boxes of school supplies for Gregory Hills Elementary.
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.
