  • PRAYER WALK FOR SCHOOL SAFETY

Let’s be proactive not reactive

Tuesday, August 21,  7:30 pm

 At all of the schools in the Smyrna School District

The purpose of the walk is to have a large concentration of people praying at the same time for God to provide safety, wisdom and guidance for our children.  We are hoping to show students, teachers, administration and elected officials how much we care and are concerned about the children.  We want to be proactive and not reactive.  If you do not have a connection to any particular school Asbury UMC is sponsoring Smyrna High School.

  • Laptop Computers Needed

Tolbert Nyenswah who attends Asbury is the Lay Leader of the Liberia Annual Conference of the United Methodist church. He has told us about a need for laptop computers for use in spreading God’s word in his country. If we can collect used laptop computers that use Microsoft Windows, we can have them reconditioned and have new software put on them and he can take them to Liberia on a future trip. We are asking anyone who has a laptop that they are can donate to this worthwhile mission to bring them to church or contact a member of the Mission Team to arrange for someone to pick them up.
