Avondale Church

A United Methodist Church family in Franklinton Columbus, OH
Avondale Church

Who We Are

We are a small (average attendance 35: 20 adults, 15 children & youth) congregation. Naturally informal, music is eclectic - with a little bit of classical, gospel, rock, and alternative, but leaning toward country/bluegrass...
Some dress fancily, but most dress casually.
We are United Methodists, but not very good at it - better at simply lifting up Jesus Christ in a poverty-stricken community.

Our Services

What are services like?
Services are informal, low-tech, music mostly tilted toward contemporary, bluegrass, and children's music.

What is the community like?
Franklinton is an older neighborhood, mostly vacant homes, population mostly children and young parents without college education, mostly renters and some "unofficial" homeless (living with other families).

What if I'm not a Christian?
You're our kind of person - we're a little suspicious of those "Christians" ourselves...

Kevin Chambers

Pastor in Ohio since 1987. Came to Avondale Church with wife Sue-Marie and three daughters in 1997. Favorite quote: A couple years ago, a young woman touched my hair and said, "I think it's wonderful that a man as old as you still has his hair."
