God calls us to be

His hands and feet, to share the message of His son by serving others.


Here at Avondale, we draw on the passion and diverse talents of our congregation. Our programs nourish faith, build fellowship and community, work to feed the hungry, and nurture those in need.


Our commitment and service to our church and community is one way we encounter God, not only by stretching out our own hands to
serve, but often by finding that God’s arms are extended back to us. 

How are you called to live out your faith?

Sunday Worship Video

Help needed with Sunday worship video!

We are in desperate need of additional volunteers to operate the video.
It’s actually much simpler than you might think....just paying attention and clicking a mouse.  

You don’t need any special computer skills.

Time commitment is minimal since you are already at the service.

Of course we will do whatever it takes so you feel comfortable before going live.

Please contact Jim McCarthy if you are interested or the Church Office.

Have you peeked in the nursery lately? We have many youngsters enjoying our nursery each Sunday. If you would like to volunteer, we need you! (Who doesn't want to hold a sweet baby?!) Cynthia and Marcia are our two wonderful staff who oversee the nursery each week (Marcia has been caring for the children of Avondale for 25 years!). They are supported by our wonderful volunteers who enable our parents to attend worship. Please let DeeDee McDonald (graynemma5@gmail.com) or Julie Caldwell (juliecaldwell33@gmail.com) know if you can help. 


Member Care is requesting your assistance with two important ministries at Avondale.  If you have ever been to the hospital, whether it be for surgery, to bring a new little life into the world or to recover from an illness, you know it is exhausting and stressful.  Having a delicious meal delivered by a friendly, familiar face after that experience can be a real blessing! Not a cook, you say?  Pick up your favorite take-out and take it and your smiling face to one of our members!  This loving gesture lets our faith community know that we care about them.


Member Care also needs your help with meals Avondale serves to families on the day of memorial services.  Serving loved ones a meal on the day of a memorial service is a significant way in which we can show our concern, love and support to our Avondale family during a time of grief. Assisting with this ministry involves preparing a dish from a designated menu, setting up tables and chairs for a small lunch, making small flower arrangements for tables or serving the meal to the family on the day of the service.   The ministry of serving this meal helps lighten the load for families on what can be a difficult day. 


If you feel called to be a part one or both of these ministries provided to our Avondale family, please contact Rena Beall (renabeall@gmail.com, 803-487-0537) or Millie Norris (avondalemille@gmail.com , 704-650-2778).   Thank you in advance for your support.  Without volunteers these ministries cannot exist.

If you are considering volunteering to work with the Bethlehem Center youth today or in the future please fill out the BC volunteer form and bring to the church office. 


FORM: http://www.avondalepresbychurch.org/abcministry

The application does not commit you to volunteer but gets your name in the system so when you are ready there will not be a delay. There are many exciting opportunities to help today and we do not anticipate the need for volunteers going away.  Those that participated in the online volunteer survey can skip page one of the application. 

Bethlehem Center requires the attached application and a background check to remain compliant with their organizations guidelines.  Thank you for considering helping the Bethlehem Center’s youth at Avondale and at the main BC campus.
