Worship at Avondale

There are many ways to worship God. At Avondale, we know God is always close and worship is one way we can reach out for that relationship. We invite you to connect with Avondale and join us for Worship as we focus on God’s Word and let the music invigorate and unsettle us. We also invite you to get connected with Avondale by reading our Worship Bulletin sharing news and ministry.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Avondale is broadcasting our Worship Services. We call this our eWorship. Join us online on Sundays at 9:30 AM on our YouTube channel. Also, find past services and bulletins below.

 

If you are a guest joining us in Worship, we invite you to sign-in here for more information about Avondale. Avondale has a warm, welcoming church family and has ministries serving all ages and stages of life.
