Avondale in Action.
In 2019, Avondale Presbyterian Church is celebrating its 75th Anniver-
sary. We invite all to join in events of music, food, worship, and fun
celebrating 75 years on Park Road in Charlotte. Actually in 1944, our
site sat at the edge of town and Park Road was named Avondale Avenue, hence the church’s name.
Avondalers and the community have been gathering for Sunday school, worship, and vacation Bible school from the beginning. As one member
said, “We were a Sunday school, building a church.” The Charlotte Observer reported on August 12, 1944 that, “Organization of a Sunday school at the newly-built Avondale Presbyterian Chapel at 2805 Avondale Avenue
was announced yesterday. Preaching services will begin at the Chapel on August 27, with the Rev. John R. Rosebro acting as supply pastor.” “Now
we were on our way to prosper in the work of the Lord,” commented
G. Douglas Aitken.
Avondale has grown a lot since then, but that same chapel is still a vital part of our campus. We continue to be a church with a caring center and a vibrant ministry to each other and those beyond our walls. Whenever we gather together to worship, serve, study, or rejoice in music, we encounter
the risen Christ in each other.
As Avondale celebrates its congregation's founding, history, and ministry
to the community, we make time for nostalgia and fun, serious reflection and spiritual awakening. We reflect on the past and look forward to the future
with renewed vision, hope, confidence, and commitment.
Where two or more are gathered in Christ's name, God's presence is assured. Can you think of anything more appropriate to celebrate?
