AVONDALE IN ACTION
Lunches for our Neighbors
We regret to share that due to current conditions of the pandemic and Mecklenburg county's recent directive, we feel compelled to modify Lunches for Homeless Neighbors. To avoid contact among people not in the same household, the Lunch Leaders have volunteered to prepare the lunches within their home pods. We will still provide lunches to our neighbors in January and February! We hope for better conditions in March. Thank you to everyone for your faithful support of this mission.

It is with deep sadness that we share that Ms. Viola Clontz joined the Church Triumphant January 22, 2021. Viola, 96 years old, joined Avondale church in 1988. A private graveside service will be held for family.
