Come worship with us! Sunday Worship 10 am, Children’s Programs 10 am ☀ An Open and Affirming Congregation of the United Church of Christ
Where faith is a journey and becoming for God is celebrated!

Welcome! We believe each of us is called to live into our own unique expression of God’s creation. Avon Congregational Church invites you to sojourn alongside us as together, we live into what it means to be Christians in the 21st century.

Are you eager to engage your mind and heart in a way that makes a difference for the good of community and world? Would you love to have more purpose and meaning added to your own life? Do you seek to encounter God and to grow in Jesus’ Way of compassion, forgiveness and healing?

We each have a sphere of reach and influence. We each have potential to proactively partner with God to transform lives, which ultimately changes us for the better! It’s true if we’re age 8 or 108!

No matter who you are, or where you are on your life’s journey, we really do mean it – you are welcome here!
