Adult Ministry

We encourage every friend, visitor, and member of Advent to be involved in some kind of regular discipleship/ faith formation activity (whether offered by Advent or some other group) since this is an essential part of being a healthy, fruitful disciple of Jesus. 

Adult Group Bible Study:

For those who want to stuy the Bible book by book, you can attend one of the three Bible study groups below:

Melbourne Beach Campus Bible Study- This Bible Study is currently taught by Pastor Rick. This study takes participants through individual books of the Bible, focusing on how the meaning of the text relates to our 21st centuy context. 

The Word Bible Study (Suntree Campus)- This Bible Study is currently taught by Pastor Dave. This study takes participants through individual books of the Bible, focusing on how the meaning of the text relates to our 21st centuy context. 

The Aloha Bible Study (Suntree Campus)- This Bible Study is taught by Rudy Pacarro. This study takes participants through individual books of the Bible, focusing on how the meaning of the text relates to our 21st centuy context. 

Adult Christian Discipleship Training:

This class takes participants through the Ten Commandments, Lord's Prayer, Baptism, and Holy Communion and explores how these core understandings relate to and strengthen our faith and our ability to follow Jesus in our daily lives. Each session is designed to "stand alone" so participants don't have to worry about missing a class, just come to whichever session they would like to attend. 

Leader's Discipleship Training 

This study reinforces the core teachings of the faith in a way that is designed to strengthen leaders as they work with their people. This study will meet once a month for about 30 minutes at the beginning of Congregational Council meetings. You don't have to be on Council in order to attend this study. 

Retired Community

Pastor Dave and Cindy Flachmeier (former director of "Aging Matters" in Brevard) met over the summer with interested retired folks in our congregation and will be putting together some programming for the fall based on the expressed needs of our 55+ members and freinds. Stay tuned and watch for excting new opportunities for fun, learning, and service. 


If you have any questions about any of these, please Contact Pastor Dave.
