As promised, click to link and view the Annual Meeting Power Point presentation.


The Google Street View photo shoot takes place this coming Sunday, June 12th.  Professional photos of our church will be taken by a local photographer.
Please attend worship and bring family and friends to give us that “full and friendly church” look.  This effort by as many as possible will go a very long way to show off our church publicly as a great place of worship.  It will provide us with a set of custom professional photos for website and brochure use.  As a bonus, it will also be used for Google Street View’s virtual tours inside of the many buildings seen in Street View. 

If you are camera shy, you can still worship on June 12th.  We will be sure to give a cue at the right time for those who don’t want to be in the picture.  Let’s make this an event to remember always!

LIFE LINE SCREENING at Avon Congregational Church
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 in Fellowship Hall.  Five screenings will be offered that scan for potential health problems related to:  blocked arteries which is a leading cause of stroke; abdominal aortic aneurysms which can lead to a ruptured aorta; hardening of the arteries in the legs which is a strong predictor of heart disease; atrial fibrillation or irregular heart beat which is closely tied to stroke risk; and a bone density screening, for men and women, used to assess the risk of osteoporosis.  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.
