From Mike and Lauren Deibert:


…In the past month, we have packed up our home,  sold our cars, sold furniture to great friends, had a yard sale that our kids could not witness because we didn’t want them to see how many toys would have to go, and have eaten on the floor for two weeks.  All that has been physically hard–but just that.  Of course, then there is the part of saying goodbye to people who have walked this journey with us.  We people from a far-away land, who live together in this land, truly form deep friendships.  We need each other, and we understand each other.  It has been one of the greatest gifts this country has offered us–community in its richest form…

Sharing the Gospel – the good news of forgiveness, salvation, and new life in Jesus Christ – is the heart of all that we do at Cathedral Church of the Advent. Advent Outreach and Missions seeks to share the Gospel with people here in Birmingham and around the world through word and deed. We feed the hungry here in town with worship, Bible study, and food. We support missionaries in several foreign countries, some of whom risk their lives to share the good news of Jesus. We teach Bible studies to students of local schools, and support a Christ-centered upbringing for orphans in Bolivia.

We are all a part of these ministries through our annual tithes. If you are looking for a special gift that would honor a loved one and give glory to Christ, please consider a “Gift of Grace”, and help provide additional support to one of the many Advent-sponsored ministries. See the 2013-2014 gifts of grace catalog and  order form.
