Advent Lutheran Church is a caring, spiritual community of faith that strives to share the love of Jesus Christ in all that we do. Our doors are open to people of all ages, faiths, ethnic backgrounds, and economic conditions. We welcome all who want to learn more about the amazing love and grace of God made known to us in Jesus Christ.
Our new worship schedule started June 14th with wonderful reviews from Advent disciples and many of our guests. The new schedule: 8:00 a.m. Traditional Worship, 9:30 a.m. New Worship / Sunday School, and 10:45 a.m. Traditional Worship / Sunday School. The new 9:30 a.m. service features newer Contemporary Christian Music in a liturgical format including weekly confession, prayer, children's message, scripture, sermon, creed, prayers, Holy Communion, benediction and sending. The 8:00 a.m. and 10:45 a.m. services have not changed (other than 10:30 moving to 10:45), including having the Advent Lutheran Band (ALB) provide music on the first Sunday of each month. Joanna Corbett continues to provide traditional organ music on all of the other Sundays. Come and see what God is doing at Advent as we share the good news!
This Sunday, July 31st following the 10:45 a.m. worship service. Bring some food to share and join us for the fun and fellowship.
Jenn, our long-time Preschool Director, was offered a wonderful career opportunity which she accepted. The Preschool Staff, children and families celebrated with her at the end of the school year. This Sunday, July 31st, the entire Advent community of faith will take the opportunity to say "thanks" for her incredible ministry. A special service of recognition and prayer will be included during the beginning of the 10:45 a.m. service and we will have the opportunity to share our love at the 5th Sunday Potluck. Jenn's hard work and dedication to the Advent Preschool will be felt here for many years to come and is already apparent in the number of children enrolled for this upcoming school year!
Advent invites you to join us for a fun servant event at Orange Park High School's "Freshman Connection" on Wednesday, August 3rd. Advent Disciples will assist with registration for the event and will help serve a pizza lunch. This is a great way for us to connect with youth from our area and show them the love of Christ in action. Volunteers of ALL ages needed. Contact Katherine Morrison 904-608-6909.
Special thanks to the Property Ministry Board for the installation of new carpet squares in Preschool classrooms and for their continued work and projects which save Advent valuable funds which can be directed to our various ministry efforts.
MANY events have been scheduled for our various youth groups. Check our website, Facebook, the Messenger and the weekly Eagles Wings announcements for all of the details.
Great work, Joanna and team! In addition to the fun week of music camp, a group of leaders and children shared the gift of music and the love of Christ this past week at the Life Care Assisted Living Facility and brought great joy to the residents.
See you in church, Pastor Jerry

Welcome! We greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and extend a warm Advent welcome to all guests and friends as we gather for worship. We invite you to join us in all parts of worship.
Please speak with the ushers if you have any special needs. Holy Communion will be shared with you in the pew upon request if you are unable to go to the altar area. Also, large print worship bulletins are available upon request from the ushers.
A fully equipped and professionally staffed nursery is available from 9am-12pm for children newborn through three years old in the education wing down the hallway in the back left area of the Sanctuary. We rejoice at having children in worship, and we know that they are normally active. Special “busy bags” with quiet toys for children are available as you enter.
All who come expecting that the Lord Jesus will make himself known in the breaking of the bread and the sharing of the cup are welcome to the Lord's Table. Children who do not yet commune are invited forward to receive a blessing. Gluten-free wafers are available.
