As the Lord calls his children to communities of faith, Advent Women’s Ministries seeks to provide women of the church multiple opportunities to seek and serve our risen Lord. Various groups and study options look to provide multiple contexts where the Gospel is always heard and the Lord’s transforming presence can be known and proclaimed. Whether studying the Bible in small or large groups, praying for cares and concerns of our church family, serving during our community-wide Lenten Preaching Series, or lending our hands and hearts to the mission and various ministries of the church, Advent Women’s Ministries looks to afford every woman a Christ-centered place to grow. Canon Deborah Leighton is Director of Advent Women’s Ministries.
