Adventure Place is an outreach ministry of Advent Lutheran Church to families in the community and beyond. Originally called “Latch Key”, this ministry launched in 1987 and provided before and after school care to 12 children. This wonderful ministry realized the dream of many hardworking, dedicated members of Advent. From its humble beginnings of a paid staff of two and two volunteers, Latch Key continued to grow beyond what anyone could have imagined, ministering to hundreds of families throughout the years. As the program evolved, it was renamed Adventure Place. This ministry now provides care to an average of 75 children year round, Monday-Friday, 6:30am-6:30pm.  We are blessed that Adventure Place is recognized as such a valued outreach ministry to our community.
