DONATE & SERVE
One of the ways Church of the Advent stands out is in the commitment we have from our members. They take the scriptural lessons about giving (financially & in volunteer work) to heart.
DONATE & SERVE
WHY WE GIVE
Simply put, we give because we are commanded by our Lord to give. Giving tithes (a Biblical percentage of our income) and alms (extra giving expressly for those in need) is a spiritual discipline we take seriously. We're not perfect, but we take giving seriously because we want to grow in our faith.
Everything we have is already from God and to God we give 10%+ of what we receive. The act of giving back to God is a blessing, sometimes a challenge and a way to be thankful for what He has given each of us. If donating electronically works well for you, see the links below to setup a one-time or recurring tithe. Alternatively, you are welcome to give on Sunday mornings in the offering plate, too.
BECOME A VOLUNTEER
Some of us have more worldly wealth to give, and some of us have more time and attenion. Some have both! God uses all of it for our good and His glory, whether it's washing dishes, playing piano, teaching Sunday School, or bringing treats. You can get started finding a place to by submitting the form below. We have many areas of need where you can bless others at Church of the Advent.
WHAT HELP IS NEEDED?
Before submitting the volunteer interest form below, below are a few areas
where monthly volunteers are regularly wanted and appreciated:
Church Setup (Sunday mornings): Unpacking the church bins and assisting in setup for the 10am Holy Communion service
Kids' Sunday School (Sundays): Be one of two leaders to take the kids through fun, learning about the Bible. Lesson plans provided, just bring your creativity and love for the kids
Coffee Hour Food/Treats (Sundays): After Sunday morning service, we commune over a cup of coffee and some delicious snacks. Bringing morning treats (coffee is supplied already) is how these volunteers bless the church body
Scripture Reading (Sundays): Volunteers read aloud select Bible passages (provided) during the Holy Communion service
Washing Dishes (Sundays): A real mug feels good in the hand and causes us to pause and rest in community. Washing mugs and plates, after coffee hour, is a lovely way to serve
Playing Music (Sundays): Let us know what instruments you play. We might have a beautiful tune for you to help us play, during the service
