Short Term Missions Trip:
AWC's short term missions team has served in Guatemala as a church body. We serve the people of Guatemala alongside Impacto Ministries, led by Pastor Luis Martinez and staff. We appreciate your prayers as we want to be affective in being instruments of Christ's love.
(Beyond our local community but within the United States)
AWC works with regional Wesleyan and non-Wesleyan ministries providing prayer and financial support as well as opportunities for the AWC body to get personally involved with these ministries.
AWC provides prayer and financial support to 6 separate missionary families:
Mike & Angela – Karis People
Chris & Melissa George – Australia
Tim & Tiffany Gallant – Cambodia
Jim & Karen Pickett - Mozambique
Missionaries to China
Luis Martinez – Impacto Ministry Guatemala
Kevin & Cindy Austin - Czech Republic
Interfaith – Gathering of local churches to provide support to those less fortunate in the local community
Nursing Home Ministry – Approximately every 5th Sunday afternoon a ministry team from AWC brings "Sunday Church" to Avon Nursing Home residents. It is a pleasure to see each one as we meet and worship together. Their voices may not be as strong as they once were but as they sing along, or sometimes just listen, the memory of a verse or chorus of a hymn brings comfort and encouragement. The devotionals we bring convey the love of Jesus and the hope of His salvation. As you look into each face you realize that you have the opportunity to touch the lives of those who have lived many years, some almost a century, and help stir memories of their past lives that can easily slip away. As you talk with them, and hear the events of their life’s journey, many times it leads to the privilege of praying for a physical need, family situation and sometimes helping them find a relationship with Christ!
