An Adventure in Faith and Fellowship in Christ   

Welcome to the season Lent as we ponder our walk with Christ in the knowledge that in struggle there is hope. Go to our Sermon Page “Walking the Way” to listen to our Lenten sermons. Join us for a Chili Cook-off on Saint Patrick’s Day to raise money for our Open Door Ministries. Join us for an afternoon Palm Sunday march from Advent to Green Man Park in Walnut Hills (2 pm) to express our belief that our first citizenship and loyalty is with God’s Kingdom.

We are a small congregation, but lively, busy, and diverse. We are intentionally engaged with and in our neighborhood. We have joined with other congregations in Walnut Hills to form a Faith Alliance whose main objective is to support children and their families in Walnut Hills. We hope you’ll spend a few Sunday’s with us and get to know us. Until then – God Bless you and Keep you!

Environmental issues – We’re working on being “Green”.

Old buildings can be environmentally unfriendly when it comes to wasting energy. It can also be a drain on finances. We are committed to being a “Green Congregation”. We are just one of the few Episcopcertified environmentally green churchal Churches that have been certified by Ohio Energy Power and Light. We are committed to continue finding ways to make our building even more environmentally friendly. Keep us in your prayers!


We are on mission of self-discovery as a community of believers. If you are looking for a congregation that is rich in outreach to the community then Advent is the place for you. If you are a visual artist seeking a space to create big beautiful thought provoking spiritual experiences then Advent is the place for you. If you are a musician seeking a place to create a jazz mass, or any other form of creative sound worship Advent is the place for you. If you are looking for a place to explore growing vegetables and flowers in a small space then Advent is the place for you. If you want to help us get a beehive started then Advent is the place for you. If you love a diversity of people then Advent is the place for you. If you are just looking for a place to help make the bible relevant for you then Advent is the place

While we are a small congregation some wonderful things have already been taking place here. We hope that you will come be a part of the creative atmosphere. We are just beginning and Christ’s work is never done.
