Advent Church Lantana?
After five decades of faithful ministry, Living Word Lutheran Church in Lantana has made a bold and courageous decision. Instead of closing their doors due to a dwindling membership they have reached out to Advent. Their congregation has voted to give us their ministry and property in the hope that we might be able to start a new church to serve that community using our resources and experience. The pastors and staff are evaluating the offer and will be sharing their findings with the Church Council at the end of the month. If the Council is in favor, Advent members will be invited to a congregational meeting to accept their offer. Please pray for Living Word and for discernment of God’s will in this exciting opportunity to “share the love of Christ” in Lantana! Living Word is located just west of I-95 on Lantana Road. Here is their website link: https://www.livingwordlantana.org.
