Youth... the next generation
The spiritual development of a child starts at birth. Advent has many ways to help parents in the spiritual development of their children. The Faith Stepping Stones program listed below marks the milestones in that faith journey starting with baptism and continuing on through graduation.
Advent offers a preschool program starting at age 3. Sunday School and Wednesday night activities. Confirmation for Middle School aged children and a Youth Group for the High School Youth. There are also various special activities throughout the year such as VBS, Mission Trips, Confirmation Camps, Art Camps, and etc. for children to become involved in.

Child Protection Policy
Protecting our Children and Youth is one of the most important aspects of our Children and Youth Ministries. Contact Megan, Director of Youth Ministries, if you have questions about this policy, or are interested in volunteering.
Faith Stepping Stones
The Faith Stepping Stones program seeks to celebrate significant milestones in the faith journey of our children. Stepping Stones begin at baptism and end at high school graduation. Families attend classes together and will be lifted up in a special blessing during worship. We bless the child, gift the family and call parents to the promises of baptism.
