Message from Avondale
Many at Avondale and in the community have been impacted by the news of Max Shanks. In moments like this the church can share a message of love, light, and hope. As you pray for the Shanks family, please know:

A service of Celebration and Witness to the Resurrection for Max will be at a later date. Until then, we appreciate the need to gather in love and support as we offer encouragement and hope to one another.

Our Worship team will be offering a Taizé service in the Avondale Sanctuary, Thursday night, July 14 at 7:00 PM. 

The Sacred Garden is open and always available as a place of peace and solace for those looking to pray. 

This Sunday, come early to visit the garden and stay late to fellowship at the Congregational Meal.

May God’s Grace & Peace Be With You. 
Church Triumphant
It is with profound sadness that we share the news that John Maxwell “Max” Shanks, 7, the eldest son of Corey and Jessica Shanks and brother of Griffin, joined the Church Triumphant Sunday, July 10, 2022.
We will continue to inform you as arrangements are made. Until then, please join us in keeping Jessica, Corey, Griffin
and the entire Shanks family and friends in your prayers.
