Praying Through the Scriptures in a Year Project Campaign to Achieve 100 “Shares / Retweets” ● This is Gospel. ● This is Bible. ● This is Avalon.  Our relationship to the Savior is more necessary than the air we breathe. If we “breathe in” God’s message to us from the Bible each day, and “breathe out” our gratitude and yearnings to Him, we will never be deprived of spiritual life and wellbeing. We hope you will join us as we “pray through the Scriptures” together this year. Follow and “Share” us on Twitter (@davidriekeblog) or Facebook at “The Praying Through the Scriptures in a Year Project.”

Congratulations to Alyosha Dukhevych who became a U.S. Citizen on Tuesday, October 10th! 

Avalon Ladies are looking forward to starting a new Friday Morning Bible Study on October 20th, 10:30 a.m.  Join our Avalon women for the kind of personal growth and friendship that is only possible in the mutual self-examination, sympathy, and inspiration that comes from sharing God’s Word together. We will be studying Understanding Spiritual Gifts, by Kay Arthur.

Would you like to get more involved at Avalon?  Please contact one of the Pastoral Staff if you would like to volunteer!

Hospitality Ministry:  Never forget that the ministry AHBC needs most of all just now, and always, is the ministry of reaching out to others in love — to believers and non-believers — by doing favors and acts of love, having others over to your house, inviting them out for coffee or dessert, or to the services and events of our church, sending personal notes, and just keeping in touch via text messages, Facebook, etc.

Children’s Church Ministry:  Thank you to those who serve in Children’s Ministry each week. Would you like to help with the Children’s Church Ministry? Talk with Quentin Tilman and express your interest.

Nursery, Children’s Church, Yard Work, Thrifty Nook Hauling, Panera Bread Hauling:  These Ministries Always Need Fresh Volunteers.
