Our vision for Advent is to be a biblically faithful, dynamically growing, spiritually healthy and exciting church, reaching out to the community through the love of Christ Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit. Please join us for worship every week:
8:00 a.m. (quiet service with Holy Eucharist)
10:00 a.m. (traditional hymns/blended music with Holy Eucharist)
Our 5:30 p.m. service - ADVENT AFTER HOURS- offers the latest in Christian music and Holy Eucharist! Come give Advent After Hours a listen, if you are looking for an informal kid-friendly service that combines prayful worship with up to date music.
Nursery for younger children open for all services.
Morning Prayer, Monday-Thursday, 9:00 a.m.

GIFT at Advent
GIFT stands for “growing in faith together.” GIFT is a monthly event, for all ages, and includes a meal. At every monthly GIFT event, we meet together to share lunch and prayer, then participate in an opening activity to prepare our hearts and minds for the GIFT experience. A hands-on learning experience in small groups follows, during which we build relationships with each other and Christ. The groups then come together to share our learning experiences, to receive resources to apply in our daily lives, and to share each other’s prayer needs. We leave equipped to live as disciples of Jesus, ready to engage in service and mission to each other, Advent, and the world.
On the Sundays that GIFT is not in session, Advent has two study groups which are open to everyone, regardless of age.
In addition to GIFT and our Sunday study groups, Advent offers a Men's Study every Wednesday at 7:00 a.m. On the first Wednesday of the month, the meeting is held at Café Stratos, 23642 Lorain Road, in North Olmsted; all other monthly Wednesday meetings take place in Advent’s parish hall.
