Welcome to Church of the Advent, a diverse and growing community ranging from skeptics and seekers to longtime followers of Jesus. We recognize that truth is often more complicated than it seems, that there are questions we cannot answer, and that doubt is a part of faith. And yet, we are compelled by Jesus Christ and believe he offers an unparalleled hope to our world. We see the church not as a building or a social club but as a growing family meant to embody all that God is doing in the world.
As a church, we seek the flourishing of Washington, D.C. by building gospel-centered communities that practice generous hospitality, spiritual formation and missionary faithfulness in every neighborhood.
Join us sundays from 10:30 A.m. - 12:00 p.m.
We meet at Luke C. Moore High School | 1001 Monroe Street NE
Parking is available in the school's parking lot (entrance on Monroe Street), including several spots for handicapped parking. Free street parking is also available on Monroe Street, 10th Street, or Lawrence Street. There is no time limit to park on Sundays.
Luke C. Moore is also a short 5 minute walk from the Brookland-CUA metro stop on the Red Line. From the station, walk towards 10th Street NE. You will see the school on the right, just past the intersection.
During our Sunday services, we offer care for infants, as well as Children's Worship for children third grade and under, and Sunday School for fourth through sixth graders twice a month. Our childcare volunteers provide a safe and nurturing environment for our children to worship and learn about God before rejoining the service right before the Eucharist. Your children are also welcome to stay with you for the entire service if you would prefer.
Parents of infants and toddlers should drop off their children before the service begins, while older children will be dismissed during the service.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT?
While our service is rooted in ancient Christian liturgy, we believe that liturgy should be as accessible as it is transcendent. Whether you are new to church or a longtime Christian, you’ll find others just like you engaging in a form of worship that is participatory, joyful, and reverent.
In our service, we sing both classic and contemporary hymns accompanied by different musicians who are part of our community. We pray for our city, our church, and the world. We read portions of Scripture and hear a sermon that relates God’s Word to our life. And each week our service culminates in the Eucharist, a celebratory feast open to all baptized Christians to celebrate our communion with God and one another.
