Donations and Offerings

We know this is a difficult time financially for many people and the ability to give could be challenging for some. Even though we are not meeting for services we still have expenses that need to be met. So, we ask that you pray and ask God to lead you in this matter.
If you would like to send your offering to the church office the mail will be checked regularly and forwarded to the Church Treasurer. Another Option is to use the online giving portal developed for Advent by the Moravian Ministries Foundation.

Below is the link to the giving portal.

All Services Cancelled through July 2020

Elders have discussed continuing COVID-19 situation
and have suspended services through the end of July 2020.



Service Update - June 27 2020 Phone Tree. All Services Cancelled through July 2020 with details and updates in next newsletter.

Any use of church facilities has to be pre-approved by the Board of Elders until further notice.
This is a necessary step to ensure the safety and welfare of our members, families and friends.
On March 12th we received a statement from the Provincial Elders Conference that stated “The PEC strongly encourages suspending worship services and large gatherings” through the end of April 2020. 
This is due to the increasing concerns of the spread of COVID-19.
Advent’s Board of Elders discussed this matter and decided to follow the recommendation of the PEC and have
suspended all services until further notice.

These services include all Sunday services, Wednesday Bible Study, and Music Actvities.

Elders have discussed continuing COVID-19 situation and have suppended services in the month of June 2020.


We will continue to keep you updated of any changes as they occur, which would impact our future schedule.
Let us continually be in a prayer for this serious situation.
God’s Blessings and Power be with you all, Board of Elders


Service Update - June 2020 News

Due to the recommendation of the Provincial Elders Conference and Advent’s Board of Elders all church services and activities have been cancelled until June 30 or until we enter into Phase 3 of the reopening process. However, this does not mean that church services will automatically resume in July. That will be a decision made at that time by the Board of Elders with the information they have provided to them by the PEC.

Any use of church facilities has to be pre-approved by the Board of Elders until further notice.
This is a necessary step to ensure the safety and welfare of our members, families and friends.
The PEC has asked the churches to take the time in June as an opportunity to develop a comprehensive plan about how to safely resume large group gatherings for worship and other activities.
