We invite you to gather with us to participate in worship, fellowship, and service to our neighbors.
Our Food Pantry is open the 3rd Saturday of the month, 9:00-11:00am and in emergencies.
Join us on our journey to learn about and do God’s work in the Avon community and the world. We will celebrate with you, laugh with you, cry with you and grow with you. All part of the life of a child of God.
Faith’s welcome mat is always out.
From Our Pastor
Beginning November 30th, the first Sunday of Advent, we will embark on our journey to the manger. Advent is a time of expectant waiting and preparation for the celebration of Jesus’ birth at Christmas.
This Advent (and Christmas Eve), our worship will be centered around the theme, “Prepare the Royal Highway.” Each Sunday will have a topic, listed below.
November 30: Highway under Construction
December 7: GPS (God’s Positioning System)
December 14: Standing at the Crossroads
December 21: Detour Ahead
December 24: Manger
Each week, beginning November 30th, we will explore what these topics have to do with our faith journeys and not just our building project.
You are also invited to think and post an image, poem, music, or item that illustrates that week’s topic. Bring them to church on each corresponding Sunday or email pictures or the words. For those of you who use social media, I encourage you to post your contribution with the tags #flcavon #preparingtheway and the topic for the week. For example for the week beginning November 30th, use the tags #flcavon and #construction. Beginning December 7th, use the tags #flcavon and #gps and so on.
During a time that is jam-packed with holiday concerts, family gatherings, shopping, and open houses, let’s remember to prepare ourselves for Jesus coming. Participating in this communal Advent practice can be such a simple way to do just that. It’s also an incredibly easy way to share your faith with others, get the word out about our church, and bring faith into your daily lives. Your posts will witness to the power of Christ in the world through your faith and creativity.
For worship each Sunday, bring an image, poem, music, or item that illustrates that week’s topic. And then throughout the week, post on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter additional pictures or writings that correspond with the topic.
What a great way to share our church and our faith with others!
