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. Two of the children in this photo had never been to church. They were being taken care of by a Christian neighbor. Their father had dropped them off without even giving the neighbor their name. Two Sundays ago we had other children and we came up with a quick project for them to do after the children’s sermon. That’s hard to do when these children have no background in faith. These are the children we’d like to reach out to in our neighborhood. If you are interested in helping us reach out to children who don’t even know who Jesus is, join us in developing some creative ways to reach out. If you’re a family with children who have been engaged in church and you’re looking for a different kind of church, perhaps your children can become leaders, leading other children to Christ.

Worship at Advent: 

Sundays at 8 am and 10 am, followed by a coffee hour. During the summer we worship in the parish hall. Pay attention to our Event page. Sometimes the 8 am folks like to have Eucharist over breakfast at the Parkside Grill.

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

Check the Location Page for a map.

Listen to a Sunday Sermon –  A Lighter Burden.

Another Sunday SermonThe Parable of the Sower

 

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.

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
