Vacation Bible School is in Action
Our first VBS Staycation is now complete. VBS families had great fun with a week of music, activity bags, Bible lessons, and videos of fun and learning (with Professor Pickles, Jessica, Mindy, Janet, Tom, Rich, Rev. Jim and more). Plus a daily "Energizer" with our Youth dance group! Check out a few pictures from our week.
VBS 2020
Christmas in July?!?
Hello everyone! There’s approximately 149 days until Christmas - and many of us have the time and opportunity to craft, create, paint, sew, wood work, etc… while we are hanging around home!
Yes, we’re talking about the Avondale Christmas Marketplace! A "rolling" market is envisioned that would feature 3-4 vendors a week for 5 weeks leading up to Dec 5, 2020. Are you interested in participating this year? We would like to hear from you by Sat, Aug 1, 2020 so that we can begin making plans. We have so many talented Avondalers! For more details, check your inbox for Lynn Wilkerson’s email from July 12 or click the box to email Lynn.
