WORSHIP GOD.  FOLLOW JESUS.
SERVE OTHERS. MAKE DISCIPLES.

 

 

What is a Church Council? The Church Council acts as Advent's Board of Directors.  There are 9 people elected for a term of 2 years on a rotational basis.  The Council meets once a month, on the third Monday starting at 6:30 pm.

Each Council member serves as a council liaison to one standing committee (typically meets once a month).  Council members are available to church members and visitors for comments, concerns and compliments.
