This Week's Update - June 22, 2016

Summer Worship Time is 9:30 a.m.:  Union worship services with the West Avon Congregational Church will be held at West Avon Congregational Church in July.  August worship will be at Avon Congregational Church.

Office Hours:  During the months of July and August the Avon Congregational Church office will be open Tuesday and Thursday, 9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. The office will be closed Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please feel free to leave a voice mail message or send an email; we will respond as soon as possible.

 Summer Pledges:  If you are planning to be away from the church this summer, please consider  mailing in your checks over the summer to keep your pledge current. It will help cover routine  expenses like utilities, insurance, supplies and payroll. Many members have switched over to using  their bank’s bill pay service (usually free) to schedule their pledge payments over the summer and it  saves them a check and a stamp. ~ Beth Ferrari, Treasurer

Vinyasa and Vegetable

Life Line Screening at Avon Congregational Church
July 12th, 9:30 - 5:30 in Fellowship Hall - Life Line Screening, a leading provider of community-based preventive health screenings, will offer their affordable, non-invasive and painless health screenings at Avon Congregational Church on July 12, 2016.  Five screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems.  

Here are the answers to some commonly asked questions:

Will it hurt? No. We use Doppler, color flow ultrasound, which is painless and considered the gold standard in uncovering early stroke and vascular disease. It is the same equipment commonly used on pregnant women. 
How accurate are results? Very. We've been classified as hospital-grade and state of the art.
How old should someone be to get a baseline test? 40 with family history. All those over 50 should be screened so if there are findings, they can get under their doctor's care and receive treatment as early as possible.
Below is a link to a great three-minute video about Life Line Screening.
Register for a Wellness Package which includes 4 vascular tests and osteoporosis screening from $149 ($139 with our member discount).  All five screenings take 60 – 90 minutes to complete. 

In order to register for this event and to receive a $10 discount off any package priced above $129, please call 1-888-653-6441 or visit http://www.lifelinescreening.com/community-partners.

The Robby Brisco Golf Tournament to benefit CCMC pediatric cancer research will be held on Monday, August 15th at the Tunxis Golf Club in Farmington. Registration is at http://www.vieforthekids.org. Robby was a recent Avon High School graduate who passed away this past September after a two year battle with cancer.
