About Our Church
Avon Congregational Church is an active and growing church which is served by The Rev. Martha F. Chenault. Reflecting this congregations theological openness, our members come from diverse Christian backgrounds. The congregation is made up of all ages; it has families and singles, students and retirees. We are a welcoming church for people of all ages, backgrounds & lifestyles, who are seeking spiritual growth, learning, and community.
Our traditional Congregational service offers strong preaching, reflective prayers, and uplifting music. Worship services are planned around the Revised Common Lectionary, a three-year cycle of lessons from the Old Testament, Psalms, and the Gospels and Letters of the New Testament. The Lectionary is a framework for worship and study that is followed by many liturgical and Protestant churches today.
The history of the Avon Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, goes back over two and a half centuries. The Church was founded in 1640 when settlers moved over Talcott Mountain from Hartford and purchased the Farmington Valley from the Tunxis Indians. The first Meeting House was built in 1756.
The church has always been at the center of community growth. There are now many churches of other denominations in Avon and a fine ecumenical spirit has developed. The Avon Congregational Church holds a special place among them with an historical perspective blended with the faith and energy to meet the future. We have a proud heritage on which to grow.
"Where there are two or three gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them." Matt. 18:20
