Advent Member looking for help finding housing near church
We have a member of the congregation who desires to live closer to church, in the Carmel or east Zionsville area. She is looking for efficiency style quarters to rent long term. Ideally it would be a guest / in-law suite, with separate entrance, in a larger house. Other possibilities include an apartment, or small, cottage type of house. It only needs to be one bedroom, one bath and an efficiency kitchen. She is working, has good credit and is looking to spend $600 - $700 per month. If you have such a space available or know of someone who does, please contact the church office and we will connect both parties. Thank you!
Record of Fellowship
IMPORTANT REMINDER: Please be sure to record the names of each member of your family who attends services by using the red “Record of Fellowship” book in your pew. Each instance of attendance is recorded in our database so we can accurately report annual attendance to the English District of the LCMs. If your ‘red book’ needs attention, please place it on the table in the Narthex so the attendance sheet or pencil can be replaced. Thank you!

Large Format Bulletins
For those in the congregation who may be prefer a larger typeface to read, there are now four binders, located in back of the last row of center pews, which have today’s bulletin, propers, divine service and announcements provided in a larger font. If you use the binders, please re-place them after each service so others may use.
For those with hearing loss
REMINDER: Advent has a hearing assist system available in the narthex (on the credenza to the right as you enter the church). Each receiver has an over-the-ear speaker and two headphone jacks, which allows the device to be shared by a couple, if necessary. The receivers with an almost round button on the front pick up two channels. Channel "A" is for Fellowship Hall and "E" is for the Sanctuary. One receiver -- two locations. Just press the small button on the front to switch between them depending where you are. If you have questions, please see an usher or Pastor Grady.
