2nd Sunday Mission – Red Bird Mission Team

A group of 15 people from Asbury are traveling to Beverly, Kentucky to participate in a weeklong Mission work project. The cost per person for the trip is about $550 that includes room and board at the Red Bird Mission camp, insurance, one hotel overnight stay, and transportation. That figures does not include individual expenses for meals down and back and for Wednesday’s day trip. The Red Bird Mission Team endeavors to defray expenses per person and provide scholarships if necessary via fundraisers and support of the Congregation through the 2nd Sunday offering. Each team member feels privileged to represent Asbury in this outreach effort, and appreciates the congregation’s prayers and generous financial support.

30 Pieces of Silver

The Asbury Mission Team invites you to participate in the 30 Pieces of Silver campaign which starts Sunday March 17 and focuses on the events leading up to Jesus’ betrayal by Judas for thirty pieces of silver.  Matthew 27:3-4  When Judas, who had betrayed him, saw that Jesus was condemned, he was seized with remorse and returned the thirty pieces of silver to the chief priests and elders. ” I have sinned, he said, “for I have betrayed innocent blood” Since we are All sinners, Saved by Grace , we would like for you to participate with us by gathering 30 pieces of silver in the bags provided. The value can literally be 30 pieces of coins (nickels, dimes, quarters, half dollars, silver dollars), or dollar bills or checks.  All proceeds will be used for the churches’ Liberian Partnership, supporting educational  and agricultural programs via the Liberian Methodist Conference.   Once you have received the bag you can donate day by day or all at once. Please bring your bag back to church at any service from Palm Sunday through Easter Sunday.

 

Every Wednesday thru Lent

Lenten Study 6:30 pm at the parsonage

Are you a fan or a follower? 

The dictionary defines a fan as “an enthusiastic admirer.” Fans want to be close enough to Jesus to get all the benefits, but not so close that it requires sacrifice. Fans may be fine with repeating a prayer, attending church on the weekend, and slapping a Jesus fish on their bumpers. But is that really the extent of the relationship Jesus wants?

JESUS WAS NEVER INTERESTED IN HAVING ADMIRERS. IT’S NOT FANS HE IS LOOKING FOR. 

Not a Fan challenges you to consider what it really means to call yourself a Christian. With a direct frankness that you’re not likely to hear in Sunday school class, Kyle invites you to take an honest look at your relationship with Jesus. His call to follow may seem radical to us, but Jesus desires it for every believer.

2019   EASTER FLOWERS

Easter is April 21st this year. Following the tradition of years past, the

Easter flowers placed in the Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall will be in honor or in memory of, those persons designated by the donor.  (Please be sure to indicate if it is in “memory of” or in “honor of” by circling the correct one on the form and please make sure your information is legible. You may use another sheet if you need more room.)

This year we are asking you to make a donation of $10.00 (or as much as you wish) towards the purchase of each flower which will be used to decorate the sanctuary. Donors who wish to remove a plant may do so on a first come, first serve basis after the 11:00 a.m. service in the sanctuary on Easter Sunday or any time during the following week.

If you would like to participate, please supply the information requested

below and with payment (checks payable to Asbury U.M. Church) return it

to the Church no later than Sunday, 4/7. You may place your forms in the offering plate or mail it to 20 W. Mt. Vernon St., Smyrna

                    “I Can Only Imagine”

Growing up in Greenville, Texas, Bart Millard suffers physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his father, Arthur. When Arthur becomes terminally ill, he finds redemption by embracing his faith and rediscovering his love for his son. Years later, Bart’s troubled childhood and mended relationship with his dad inspires him to write the hit song “I Can Only Imagine” as singer of the Christian band MercyMe.
