We gather at 9:00 AM on Sundays to pray, praise, lament together, and hear God's good news for us and the world.
Ours is a hybrid gathering: some in the building, some via zoom or our live-stream. You are invited to gather with us in the way that you are most comfortable and pray that it is a blessing for you.
We believe God calls us together from all times and places, just has God has always called the church together and we confess in our creeds and liturgy (that's the bit where we talk about the church on earth and the hosts of heaven; also, the part about the "great cloud of witnesses".) We are part of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA.org)
Pastor Nancy Bacon
Pastor Nancy Bacon has been serving Lutheran churches for 20 years. She and her family recently moved to Illinois this past winter. She loves the friendships in faith that connect the members of Advent and looks forward to growing in Christ with her new congregation. With the council leadership of Advent, Pastor Nancy is excited to be encouraging members of all ages to strengthen their faith in creative and fun ways. If you stop by on a Thursday at 10am you will be encouraged to stay for Bible Study. Check out our website in the near future to see how Advent is having fun while learning through scavenger hunts and escape rooms. Do you love Pickleball? Advent is a great place to play indoors in the Morton area. Pastor Nancy loves to play her viola in worship and connect with people in worship and online and looks forward to meeting you soon!
