• Avon church to hold Valentine’s Day “Pancakes and Jazz” dinner to benefit Habitat for Humanity of Hendricks County

    February 09, 2012 No comments

    Avon Christian Church will hold a Valentine event that is slightly different from the usual candlelit dinner for two. Instead, they will offer Pancakes and Jazz from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Guests will be treated to buttermilk, blueberry and chocolate chip pancakes, along with eggs, sausages and beverages; all to soothing live Jazz music.

    This is an annual event for Avon Christian Church to hold the pancakes and jazz supper, with proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity of Hendricks County. It is the first time the church organized the evening on Valentine’s Day. Dan Creeden, a church leader, said “We felt it was a nice alternative to other things people do and provides an opportunity for the entire family to participate.” Just in case people have already made their Valentine arrangements that evening, the church will also provide a dessert for people to stop by and enjoy after their dinner out. A free will offering will be taken, with the proceeds going to Habitat for Humanity of Hendricks County.

    With affordable housing becoming an increasing problem in Hendricks County, the local affiliate cannot stay on pace to provide this need with local families. Habitat for Humanity of Hendricks County raises all of its resources locally and Avon Christian Church has been a regular supporter of the organization for many years, both from a financial and a volunteer perspective. Dr. Carolyn Scanlan, minister of Avon Christian Church says the mission of her church and Habitat for Humanity’s mesh well. “Avon Christian Church is committed to Habitat for Humanity of Hendricks County to live out our mission to care for the least, the last and the lost and to share the love of God in all circumstances,” said Scanlan.

    Avon Christian Church is located at 7236 E County Rd 100 S in Avon. For more information on the pancakes and jazz supper, contact Marcia Gentleman at 317-272-1405 or habitat-vc@indy.rr.com.
