Are you ready to make your stewardship commitment for 2018?
We are a diverse, Christian community committed to building relationships and transforming lives through faith and action.
Did you know?
You are feeding thousands of hungry people around the world.
You are providing an education to an untold number of children and adults throughout the globe.
You are in disaster areas providing relief and sustained rebuilding.
You are, at this very moment, helping to build the world that God dreams for us.
Every time you give to God’s mission for Advent Lutheran Church, you are investing in hope, possibility and real healing.
In addition to the many ministries that occur at Advent – your generosity funds ministries worldwide through the Metropolitan NY Synod, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and the Lutheran World Federation.
Thank you for living your life generously!
Consider increasing your giving by 1% this year. That 1% will help us get closer to implementing God’s vision at Advent by:
+ Expanding and Strengthening Social Ministries (Hunger, Immigration, After-School, Anti-Racism Work, Advocacy)
+ Increasing Outreach Ministry
+ Offering small group opportunities for faith and community development
Ever since I came here I feel like God has become part of my life [. . .] The people who are joining this community are being transformed. I am, I think, an example of that. - Adolfo R.
We moved to New York for my spouse's job, and I didn't really know anyone here. What I found with Advent is a wonderful, welcoming community and a place that feels like home. - Abby F.
The people here have helped me to rejoice in my faith, live in my faith, and showed me how to use that faith and love to try to be a better person, set an example, and share that love with others. - Lynne H.
For me, being at Advent, coming here every Sunday, the whole community, every single sermon, is like a call to action. I call it "living out loud." It's not just a one-time event. It's like, what do you do after the sermon ends? What's next? - Blessing T.
When I became a single parent, the support that Advent gave me made me stronger to take care of my children. - Rebecca C.
