Christian Nurture at Avondale
Sunday, August 30 was Rally Day. In the past, Rally Day has been a fun-filled day of celebrating the coming back together following summer and a time of sharing the many ways one can participate in the life of the church. Although this year looked different, there is still great ministry happening within Avondale! We invite you to read through the opportunities available for fellowship and education. Below, we highlight two studies beginning in the near future that are requesting you to express your interest via sign-up.
Women's Study Group
Beginning Sept 24 at 8 PM, join with other Avondale women as we dive deep into the Book of Jonah. From this study, you will walk away with a deeper understanding of God's character, a God who is gracious and compassionate, "slow to anger and abounding in love" (Jonah 4:2), whose mercy extends to ALL people, and a clear sense of our own call and mission in the world. Focus will be on HOW to study your Bible and will include a brief teaching followed by small group discussion. We will meet on Zoom on Thursdays at 8 PM for 5-6 weeks. We are an inter-generational group - all ages are welcome. Let us know you're interested!
Men's Bible Study
with Rev. Jim Ewing
When God pours out his love, our parched lives are revived and our thirsty souls satisfied. What is the
secret of receiving more of God's love and of giving it freely to others? The book of 1 John calls us back to the
basics of loving God and one another. This 6-week Bible study lets you explore life-changing topics from a biblical perspective in community with others in your small group. Challenging questions encourage you to reflect on Scripture and its impact on your life, both as an individual and as part of a community of Christ followers. Let Rev. Jim know you're interested!
