and Counseling Ministries
Facing a crisis can be an isolating time for anyone. It is sometimes challenging to know where to go when we are in need of care for ourselves or a loved one. The Advent offers various ministries and programs to care for our members, as well as Christian counseling for those in need. Our ministry is available to Adventers who are ill, caring for a sick family member, transitioning home after a hospital stay, grieving because of the death of a loved one, or experiencing other difficulties. The Advent’s prayer teams are available to pray for church members and others, for any reason you might seek prayer. For more information about the Advent’s intercessory prayer ministry, see Advent House Prayer Ministry below.
The Advent offers a range of counseling services to parishioners by our clergy and staff. Contact Stella Schreiber by email or by phone at 205.443.8558 for more information or to schedule and appointment.
We perform infant baptisms several times each year during regular Sunday worship. To scheduel your child’s baptism, contact Pastoral Care Coordinator Robin Turner by email or phone at 205.226.3500.
Please let our clergy or the Pastoral Care office know (by email or phone at 205.226.3500) when you or a family member are admitted to a hospital. We would like to pray for you or, when possible, have clergy or trained lay chaplains visit you.
During times of illness or crisis, meal delivery helps alleviate the stress of a basic necessity. If you are in need of a meal after surgery, during a serious illness, or other crisis, contact Stella Schreiber by email or phone at 205.443.8558.
