Advent Lutheran Church is a Reconciling in Christ (RIC) Congregation
We extend our welcome to people of all races, cultures and colors; to people of all sexual orientation, gender, and gender identity; to people of all ages, background and abilities; to people of every legal, economic, and marital status; and to all those whom the world seeks to separate, divide, or isolate. We are a community committed to the work of racial equity, bringing justice for all of God's beloveds.
We celebrate your identity as a gift from God, and we welcome you to a diverse community united by our faith. We welcome you to receive God's grace given to all regardless of our worldly successes or failures.
"Welcome one another, therefore, just as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God." -Romans 15:7
Are Lutherans Christians?
Yes, Lutherans are Christians. The Lutheran church is a branch of Christianity that traces its interpretation of the Christian religion to the teachings of Martin Luther.
Advent Lutheran Church believes in giving back to the community, and showing God's love to all.
Garden of Giving - In 2021, the Advent Lutheran Church’s Garden of Giving changed lives and brought healthy food to our community members in need. In total, during 2021 the Garden of Giving donated 3,649 lbs of produce to the Snohomish Food Bank! The church thanks all of the garden volunteers, and especially Sandy & Dennis Barrett for their steadfast commitment through cold and heat to successfully lead this ministry.
Christmas Food Baskets - Advent Lutheran Church's Christmas Food Baskets Committee is thrilled to share that thanks to your generosity, 225 families in need in our community each received $50 gift cards in December 2021. Volunteers of America, Everett Gospel Mission, Clothes for Kids, YWCA, and local schools helped identify recipients in need.
Free Food Pantry at Advent Lutheran Church - During
the pandemic, Advent has offered a free food pantry directly in front
of the church which is always unlocked for those in need to collect food
—and it is always unlocked to receive food donations. We welcome all
items, but especially pasta, sauce, canned fruit, bar soap, shampoo, and
hot and cold cereal. Thank you for your generosity!
The Giving Tree for Mary’s Place - Thank you to everyone who generously supported the Giving Tree for Mary's Place, a local organization which provides safe, inclusive shelter and services for women, children and families on their journey out of homelessness. Thanks to your generosity, we collected 43 gift cards and checks totaling $1225!
We have several Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) groups that meet at our church and bless us with their presence. For meeting times, please visit: https://silverlakestudygroup.org/
