Music and the Arts
Chancel Bell Choir
The Chancel Bell Choir performs for the congregation once a month during the school year, and practices once a week on Monday nights at 7:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary.
The 11-13 member choir plays 5-octave music using 4-1/2 octaves of Malmark handbells and 4 octaves of Malmark handchimes. They are always interested in having new members join the group. No experience is required. If you are interested in playing, please contact the Chancel Bell Choir Director, Sheri Blauwiekel, through firstname.lastname@example.org.
Advent’s Chancel Choir is comprised of members who share their time and musical talent with our congregation and the community in many ways. Rehearsals are held in the loft on Wednesday evenings at 7:30 throughout the school year. If you are interested in being in the choir contact Tom Williams at email@example.com.
Peace! Hope! Joy!, the choir’s first CD, contains glorious music for the Advent and Christmas season. Their second CD, The Road to Alleluia, musically traces Christ’s journey from the hosannas of Palm Sunday through the agony of Golgotha and, ultimately, to the glory of the Resurrection! A third two-disc CD, Sharing God's Blessings: 25 Years of Music at Advent, was released to commemorate the church's 25th anniversary. You can CLICK HERE to order the CD's.

The Mission of Advent’s Meditation Garden and Labyrinth is to provide an outdoor sanctuary for spiritual growth.
Walking a labyrinth is a spiritual practice that dates back to ancient times.
By entering the labyrinth and following the path, the seeker will always arrive at the center, using the journey to quiet the mind and find peace and illumination at the center of one’s being
Seasons of the Church Year
Advent works to infuse meaning into every aspect of the worship environment. Since Lutheran worship is liturgical, we follow the seasons of the church year, and the worship areas are decorated to reflect the mood of each church season. Sanctuary artisans create an atmosphere reflective of the symbols and colors of the seasons of Advent, Christmas, Epiphany, Lent, Easter or Pentecost.
