Sunday Bible Study meets for an hour on Sunday mornings between the 8:15 and 10:45 a.m. services.  This study is biblically grounded and addresses issues we face in today’s world.  Bibles are available and refreshments are provided.  Come Sunday and enjoy the clear teaching of God’s Word for the forgiveness of sins!

Wednesday Bible Study
This study meets at 9:30 AM and at 7:30 PM on Wednesdays in the church library. 

Sunday School / Vacation Bible School

Our Sunday school is designed for the Christian education of our children ages 3 and up, every Sunday at 9:30 AM. Those in preschool through second grade meet in the church library for an opening period of music.  Grades three through six meet in the downstairs commons and the seventh through twelfth grades go to their respective classrooms downstairs.  We welcome all children but ask that you please speak to their teacher when first enrolling so the teacher may know you too. If you wish to be involved with the Sunday School program please call the church office at 317.873.6318.  

Preschool & Kindergarten

Advent is proud to offer a Christian learning environment for children ages 2 through 5. Our mission is to share God’s grace through the education and enrichment of young children. 
 
Our curriculum incorporates Indiana State guidelines and hands-on learning; promoting motor skills and brain development. Our philosophy is that every child is a gift from God, full of potential and ready to be nurtured in mind, body and spirit.  Visit the preschool website

New Members

In fulfillment of the Great Commission by Christ to go, baptize and teach, Advent offers instruction for adults in the foundational teachings of Christianity. Our new member education class prepares a person to join with the people of Advent in the teachings of Christ – a condition of membership. This class also serves as a great refresher for those who wish to review our Lutheran Confessions. If you or someone you know is interested in attending the next installment of the class, please contact the office at 317.875.6318..

Youth 

Advent offers confirmation and youth instruction and fellowship for middle and high school students. Special classes to meet the needs of our students occur on Sundays in the Youth Room at 9:30 am.  Other fellowship and service opportunities are scheduled throughout the year, including Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. 

Confirmation 

For 7th and 8th grade students, Confirmation Instruction begins each September.  During this program, youth are taught the theology of the Bible and Luther’s Catechism so that it is understood and used as a valuable tool for Christian faith and daily life.  Students are also enriched in the faith with experiences that broaden their knowledge and abilities to confess and apply their faith.
