In Isaiah we hear that God's house shall be a house of prayer for all people and that God will gather the outcasts of Israel. The Canaanite woman in today's gospel is a Gentile, an outsider, who is unflinching in her request that Jesus heal her daughter. As Jesus commends her bold faith, how might our church extend its mission to those on the margins of society? In our gathering around word and meal we receive strength to be signs of comfort, healing, and justice for those in need.

We want to help parents and grandparents by providing resources for teaching about God's love to youth at home.

Who Remembers...
"Let's Go Krogering"?
Advent is still participating in the YouthScrip through Kroger. You buy what you normally would, and Advent Youth receive the rewards. A portion of what you spend is then forwarded to Advent. All you need to do is to go to your Kroger account at Kroger Community Rewards , link your Plus Card and put in the ID 330 to designate Advent as your choice organization. It is simple and Advent reaps the rewards.
Happy Birthday!
