Faithful Friends
Over 50 people, most born before 1940, are on our Faithful Friends list, made up of Avondale members. ASAP members recently made and mailed an Easter card to each Faithful Friend. They included a note and questions [LINK] to help keep people engaged. Also, the questions are good talking points when Avondalers call them. If you are interested to call a Faithful Friend regularly to chat, please contact Lyn Sweet or Brenda Coble.

Last Sunday, the youth group voted to change the name of the youth group Instagram page to AvondaleYouthGroup. Now you can find our Avondale Youth Group photos on Instagram at https://www.instagram.com/avondaleyouthgroup/. Follow and tag Avondale in your posts!
