Our Mission
Our Philosophy on Children

It is important to have children of all ages participate in our worship services. In our baptismal service, parents, sponsors and the whole congregation promise to bring children to worship.


Bringing children into the sanctuary is something like allowing a child to eat at the dinner table. Even though their manners are far from elegant, it is done so children will learn and feel a part of the family.

Our Charter

Inviting children to participate is the most powerful way to teach them. Children giggle, they poke, they ask questions and they swing their legs simply because they are children. Young children in worship may have bad moments, but it is their birthright as Christians to worship.

Children learn by experience. This is how we learn to worship and become active members of this church community. Children learn how to welcome by how they are welcomed. Please join us in expressing joy at having children worship with us and join us in giving prayers and thanks to God for each child’s presence.

Our Vision

In five years, Advent Lutheran Church will be a growing and diverse community of people who are sought out and welcomed with the purpose of hearing and sharing God's Word and Sacraments of forgiveness and grace.
