Greetings to everyone, from the Avondale Baptist Church family! We would like to invite you to come and visit us if you are looking for a loving church family. We welcome you to come and worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ with us. We are located at 1405 Hoyt Street.
This Sunday is Sunday School High Attendance Day so we would love to have you in Sunday school at 9:45 a.m.Â We have classes for all ages and we have great teachers for each class.
Food always seems to taste better when enjoyed outdoors. No matter the occasion or location, these packable, snackable recipes are foods fit for a fabulous picnic.
Bean Salad Stuffed Shells are a simple, flavorful, portable appetizer. Jumbo shells filled with a can of 3 or 4 bean salad, herbs and cheese make great
Baby Beet and Farro Salad is an easy pack-and-go side. Whole pickled baby beets â€” just right for one bite â€” are the star of this whole grain salad, tossed with Dijon mustard dressing.
