SURVEY for Virtual and In-Person Small Group and Worship Gatherings
Although we are still unsure of when the congregation may return to in-person worship, leadership at Avondale recognizes the importance of offering a variety of safe and creative opportunities for worship, fellowship, and study together. We are currently exploring possibilities for additional small group and worship gatherings and the Worship and Christian Nurture teams would like your feedback! Please take a moment to complete the survey below and do not hesitate to reach out to Amanda if you have any questions.
Sign Language at Avondale?!
Did you catch the sign language in worship last Sunday during the Song of Confession? We have created a tutorial of the signs for the song “Have Mercy God Upon My Life” and invite you to learn the signs and participate every Sunday during Lent. Read more here and find the videos.
Ten Cents-A-Meal
Returned to 4th Sunday Worship!
Avondalers have contributed $1,690 as of Feb 22 to this program that bolsters food security programs throughout the communities of Charlotte Presbytery.
