An Adventure in Faith and Fellowship in Christ

     

We are a small congregation, but lively and busy. We don’t have a regular contingency of children, but we love to engage them when they’re with us or when we join other activities in the community. Advent is a part of the Walnut Hills Faith Alliance. In July we had great fun joining with Morning Star Baptist, Christ Emmanuel, Echo Church, and other organizations to participate in a day of fun for families in Walnut Hills. If you’re a family with children and you’re looking for a church that welcomes and engages children, give us a shot.

Worship at Advent: 

Services are at 8 am and 10 am. There is always coffee to be had at 9 am and after the 10 am service when we have coffee hour. Come in and get to know us. We are a unique congregation.

Come and meet our new and awesome deacon, Rev. Charles Graves IV. On Sunday, Aug 6th he will be officiating Morning Prayer at the 8 am and 10 am service. Since Aug 6 is the Feast of the Transfiguration, Charles will be holding an interesting discussion at coffee hour that follows the 10 am service. We hope you’ll stick around. He’s a pretty awesome teacher!

Church of the Advent is located at 2366 Kemper Lane in Walnut Hills.

Listen to a Sunday Sermon –  A Lighter Burden.

Matthew 11:16-19, 25-30 – Many people are familiar with the words “Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.” We tend to ignore the rest of Jesus’ invitation, to take up his burden. This sermon explores what it might mean to exchange the burden of the world for a burden that belongs to the Kingdom of God.

Another Sunday SermonThe Parable of the Sower

Songs at Advent – Let all Mortal Flesh Keep Silent (click ‘Songs at Advent)

An ancient song of praise that asks us to pay attention as heaven breaks through and the Prince of Peace enters the world he created. It is all too much for even the angels to watch.

Programs at Advent

  • Bible Study (Wednesdays at 10:30). When the weather’s nice we move our lawn chairs into the shade for some cool reading
