Give the gift of life! On Good Friday, the day of Christ's crucifixion, Avondale will host a life giving event- a blood bank. The American Red Cross will set up a socially distanced blood donation bank from 10 AM - 2:30 PM in the Family Life Center. You can donate whether you have or have not had the vaccine. Youth ages 16 and up are allowed to donate with parental consent.
Can you help check-in donors for an hour or two? If interested, contact Ann Sanders or call the office.
Guess what opens today? Sign-up for the next Adventure! Find details and registration info on our website. Please help spread the word to friends & family about this great ministry. Registration closes on April 7.

There are multiple ways to contribute on Sundays or give toward your pledge – via our website, send a check payable to APC, give a one-time gift, set up a recurring gift, or give gifts of stock. If you have yet to share your 2021 pledge, you can submit your pledge form online. Thank you.
We celebrate with great joy and anticipation the arrival of three new babies within Avondale during the months of March and April! Member Care invites you to share in this excitement by signing-up to contribute to a Baby Blessing Basket to be delivered to the families. The sign-up includes diapers, wipes, and their most frequented grocery stores and take-out restaurants.
Items can be dropped-off at the church office on or before April 4! When dropping off, please assign a card or sticky note indicating the family each gift is intended for.
A Thank You Note
"Thank you, Avondale, for your prayers and expressions of sympathy and caring after my mother's passing. Your thoughtfulness is much appreciated."
