Bible 101
Each week we discuss a Bible passage, delving into the history, the context, and grappling with its meaning in our lives. We ask a lot of questions and operate under the wise words of our founder "no Sunday School answers." Our reading often comes from the lectionary, which follows the year in the life of God's church. But we veer away from that to engage other topics that our class feels called to discuss. We are a community of all ages that wrestles with and rejoices in God's word.
  Current: Sundays at 10:30 AM via Zoom

Men's Bible Study with Rev. Jim Ewing 
When God pours out his love, our parched lives are revived, and our thirsty souls satisfied. What is the secret of receiving more of God's love and of giving it freely to others? The book of 1 John calls us back to the basics of loving God and one another. This six-week Bible study lets you explore life-changing topics from a biblical perspective in community with others in your small group. Challenging questions encourage you to reflect on Scripture and its impact on your life, both as an individual and as part of a community of Christ followers.
  Current: 6-week study beginning Fall 2020

Mystics Class
We are a diverse group that meets monthly at Avondale. We explore and seek to learn about our relationship with God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit from different perspectives. Our goal is to center and immerse ourselves in God’s living presence and broaden our awareness and intuition to be Christ Centered. “Learning to Let Go of Self.” We practice this Centering through Silence and Prayer. We read a variety of writings and books of the known “Mystics” and current wisdom authors. 
  Current: Monthly meetings 
  Currently reading “The Wisdom Jesus” by Cynthia Bourgeault

Presbyterian Women of Avondale 
The purpose of Presbyterian Women of Avondale (PWA) is to nurture our faith through prayer and Bible study, support the missions of the church, work for justice and peace, and build an inclusive and caring community of women that strengthens the Presbyterian Church (USA) and witness to the promise of God's kingdom.
  Current: Meetings and missions vary 

Taizé Prayer Services 
A trademark of Taizé is the singing of distinctive, repeated prayer chants during candlelit prayer services. Taizé music highlights simple phrases, usually lines from the Psalms or other Scripture, repeated or sung in canon. The repetition is designed to help with meditation and prayer. All welcomed to participate in this time of meaning and quiet reflection. 
  Current: First Tuesday of the month at 7 PM 
  currently broadcast via our YouTube channel, “Avondale Presby Church”

Women's Study Group 
Join the women of Avondale as we dive deep into the Book of Jonah. From this study, you will walk away with not only a deeper understanding of God's character, a God who is gracious and compassionate, "slow to anger and abounding in love" (Jonah 4:2), whose mercy extends to ALL people, but also a clear sense of our own call and mission in the world. Our focus will be on how to study your Bible and will include a brief teaching followed by small group discussion. We are an intergenerational group and all ages are welcome.
  Current: Thursdays at 8 PM / beginning Thursday, September 24, 2020
