Spiritual Growth at Elementary & Middle

The spiritual growth of our children is central to Advent’s vision – a confident Christian ready for the next adventure. This growth comes not just from our religion curriculum, but from our daily actions, words, and thoughts.
  • We learn to conduct ourselves with respect in all aspects of life – respect for God, for authority, for peers, for property, and for ourselves.
  • We learn to rely on prayer as a tool to face challenges and rejoice in successes.
  • We learn of God’s love, hope and grace through scripture and Bible stories.
  • We learn to worship and praise in our weekly chapels.
  • We learn that we are part of a community of believers and with that comes strength, support and desire to give back.
  • We learn that we are blessed and capable to be a blessing to others.
  • We learn about our individual passions and gifts, and how to put them to use.
  • We learn that we are loved and that we are called to share that love with our community and the world.
All students attend a weekly chapel which is led by students, Pastors, and school staff. Our chapels include worship music, scripture, a message, an opportunity to give and prayer. Several chapels throughout the year have special meaning: our Veteran’s Day chapel to recognize our brave military heroes; our Grandparent’s Day chapel to honor our extended families; and our Kindergarten Moving Up Ceremony to celebrate the growth of our littlest Gators – just to name a few.
 
Parents and families are invited to join us and end their week with the joy of the Lord!

Spiritual Growth at Early Childhood

Spiritual growth of our children is central to Advent’s mission. Students are taught through Bible stories, songs and prayers, about sharing their love for Jesus with their family and friends. Our goal is to teach the children how much God loves them.
 
All students attend weekly chapel (usually Friday mornings), which is led by church and school staff. Parents and family members are invited to participate as their schedules permit, and each year we celebrate grandparents with a special chapel just for them!
 
To welcome new families to the Early Childhood School, Advent Church presents each new infant and toddler with an age appropriate Bible storybook. Parents are encouraged to talk to our Advent Family Minister, Jessica Ballas, about taking steps towards baptizing their child. Throughout the early childhood years, the church and school partner to provide the parents with resources, such as music CD’s and prayer books to teach their children about the love of the Savior, Jesus Christ.
 
At the Prekindergarten graduation, each student is presented with “The Beginners’ Bible” so that children and parents can continue to read God’s word together and grow in knowledge and understanding of their Heavenly Father.

Why we teach our kids to give…..

“And do not forget to do good and to share with others, for with such sacrifices God is pleased.” Hebrews 13:16
 
The acts of giving and service play an important part of Advent’s mission to inspire the minds, grow the hearts, strengthen the bodies, and nurture the souls of God’s children. We strive to instill these life qualities in our students because by teaching our students to give, we are teaching them that there is something more important than themselves. By teaching our students to serve, we are teaching them that there are others in need of their gifts and talents. Our desire is to inspire each student to identify their passions and use them to bless their community and the world.
 
SWAGStudents Who Are Giving – encourages our students to give weekly and instills the habit of giving consistently. Our chapel donations go to causes important to our church and school. Some of the programs our students have contributed to in the past include:
  • Boca Helping Hands, a food distribution center and job training program in our local community
  • Family Promise, a homeless ministry to families of Palm Beach County
  • Freedom Challenge, a ministry dedicated to ending human trafficking around the world
  • Food for the Poor, an agency dedicated to eradicating hunger in 3rd world countries
  • Village of Hope, our sister school and community health center in Haiti
  • Red Cross Disaster Relief
