Care Ministry

 The primary vision of this ministry is to offer love, prayer and assistance to members of the Advent family. In order to be successful, we are seeking volunteers for any/all of the following tasks:

  • Supply occasional meals for Advent family members in time of a need such as health issues, death in the family, etc. 

  • Visit elderly members of Advent to strengthen a friendly connection, provide transportation to attend church or church events or assistance as needed.

  • Provide pastoral care through taking holy communion to people who are unable to attend worship. Training will be provided.

If you are interested in joining us to help care for our family, please contact Carol Feret at or 913-558-4616
