Giving to Avondale
Your giving helps ensure Avondale offers meaningful ways to engage faith through worship that awakens us, experiences that help us understand our role in God's world, and service to those beyond our walls.
Given to the Glory of God
Remembering loved ones who reside within the church triumphant is natural on Easter Day. This year, as with years past, there are opportunities to honor or remember loved ones by supporting a particular mission or project. The directions for giving this year are the
Children's Ministry "Butterfly Release Fund" and GoodPasture Fund. On Easter Day, we will be receiving the larger denominational offering - One Great Hour of Sharing.

Butterfly Release Fund
We will release butterflies in memory and in honor of those we love and hold dear on Easter morning following the 9:30 AM service. Funds from the proceeds will go towards our Children’s Ministries and support special programs and mission projects. If you are not here that day, someone from the congregation will release your butterflies. We hope you will join in this new and exciting way of remembering those we love. The tribute will take place in the Sacred Garden.
The GoodPasture Fund is a scholarship fund at Avondale intended for young people interested in participating in the Camp/Conference opportunities of the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A. A weekly cost of one week at a Presbyterian Camp/Conference is approximately $500. A financial contribution to the Good- Pasture Fund trims the cost enabling more youth to participate.
One Great Hour
This fund offering is the traditional Easter Offering of our denomination. A gift to One Great Hour of Sharing enables the church to share God’s love with our neighbors-in-need around the world by providing relief to those affected by natural disasters, providing food to the hungry, and helping empower the poor and oppressed. Donating can be done by going online at One Great Hour of Sharing (PCUSA) or by using envelopes available Palm Sunday and Easter Day here at Avondale.
Gifts to Avondale can touch many lives. Supporting Avondale Presbyterian Church through your gifts is an expression of love for the work that God has called the church to do, and an affirmation that all we have is God’s alone. There are many ways to make gifts to Avondale.
