New to the Advent?

…if so, please contact our Newcomer Coordinator, Sandy Bowron Blalock, at 226-3519 or

The Church of the Advent can be a pretty crowded place most Sundays, but we think that’s a nice “problem” to have – since we believe it mainly to be the result of the scripturally-faithful preaching and teaching that this church has so consistently been blessed with year after year.

With nearly four thousand members on our rolls and about a thousand people in church on any given Sunday, we know it’s easy to feel lost in the shuffle. But we really, really want all our visitors to feel welcome, no matter how crowded it might seem – and to quickly come to feel at home with us!

Look for our Welcome table in Clingman Commons, our parish hall (above), on Sunday mornings, ask an usher to point you where you want to go, click around all over this website, and by all means especially have a look at these topics below:
