An Adventure in Faith and Fellowship in Christ

Stanton Community Garden Party Stanton Community Garden Party   

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 September we supported one of our members who threw a Community Garden Party on her block. There are two Community Gardens for people to harvest from, folks made mini terrariums, ate food that was all natural and included things you can harvest from your own back yard, and a bike giveaway for kids. It was a small turn out, but everyone had a great time. If you’re a family with children and you’re looking for a church that welcomes and engages children, give us a shot.

Advent has connections to people living in Houston. Rev. Charles Graves went down to help with some clean-up alongside St. Martin’s Episcopal Church in Houston. He also met up with Jill Lein whose church (The Rev. Clay Lein), Saint John the Divine, Houston, who are also doing a lot in Houston as well as establishing a donation center.

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.

In our sermons we are traveling with the rest of the Diocese of Southern Ohio as we explore the book of Exodus and the meaning it holds for Christians today. The sermons will also give you a little insight into what kind of church Advent is. We hope you’ll check our story telling abilities out.
