Always Avondale Endowment
Gifts to our Always Avondale Endowment
supports the church in future efforts. A gift to
the endowment carries with it an understanding
of what it means to be a faithful steward, an
understanding that blessed with a faith community your gift is used to bless others, and an awareness that increased financial costs for church ministry and mission cannot rest solely upon those who are yet to come.
Contact Jacqueline, our financial coordinator, about your gift.
