Help Needed – Pianist for the Sunday Worship Services – After 6 ½ years, Xavier Richert has made the decision not to renew his contract with Advent beginning February 1, 2020.  As a result we are in need of a temporary substitute(s) for Sunday worship service until a replacement is found.  If anyone is interested in filling-in occasionally during this interim period, please contact Pastor Scott (scott_lohman@sbcglobal.net) or Peggy Earnhardt (pjearnhardt@triad.rr.com).  We wish Xavier God’s blessings for the future.

Choir Rehearsal – At this time, Choir will be on hiatus for the time being.  We’ll keep you posted!

Blessings Bags  Thanks to your overwhelming support for our pre-Christmas  “Blessings Bags” activity (gathering supplies, filling the bags and distributing them to homeless in your areas) all completed bags have been taken! Several of you have asked about filling more bags to share, so we are reviewing current resources and hoping to plan another activity soon. May the Lord keep working here! Stay tuned for more information!
