Welcome to the Women of the Advent!
But in your hearts honor Christ the Lord as holy, always being prepared to make a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you; yet do it with gentleness and respect…
1 Peter 3:15
Whether you are new to the church or a longtime member, no matter where you are in your walk with the Lord, there is a place for you to study, serve, gather, and grow within this active and vibrant community of women, representing all ages and stages of life. Small groups and Bible studies, monthly events and fellowship groups, service opportunities within the church and out in our city, as well as an annual weekend retreat…these are just a few of the ways you can get involved in Women’s Ministry at the Advent. Our hope is for each woman to be involved in meaningful ways that will challenge, equip, and encourage her until the good work our Lord has begun is brought to completion at the day of Christ Jesus.
Please let me know how I can help.
Director of Women’s Ministries
Join us for our Women’s Ministries Fall Kickoff on Thursday, August 25, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. at Cranmer House (2814 Linden Avenue, 35209). We’ll catch up over dinner together, find out about all the opportunities to study and serve in Women’s Ministries, and hear from Carrie Leland, Executive Director of Pathways.
Started in 1985 by the Advent’s St. Mary’s Guild, Pathways serves approximately 1,600 women and children each year who are experiencing homelessness. Carrie will share the scope of Pathways ministry and explain the variety of ways the women of the Advent can partner with Pathways.
We hope you will join us as we gear up for another wonderful program year. Please contact Leslie Housman with any questions.
