Opportunities To Serve

Asbury provides numerous opportunities to share God’s love.

These opportunities include the following:
  • outreach dinners to shut-ins September through May
  • the community food pantry, housed at Asbury Church
  • advocacy for social issues
  • volunteering to help with the youth ministry, Sunday school, or other established ministries
  • opportunity to create new ministries to serve others in Jesus’ name

Look for specific opportunities in Sunday’s bulletin or in the church’s monthly newsletter.

CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES:

Second Sunday Offering

The 2nd Sunday collection for Missions in January will go to Carol Argo, our missionary in Cambodia.

Carol spoke at our church last spring.  She left for Phnom Penh, Cambodia, last May.

So far she has been learning the Khmer language to be able to share the joy of Jesus. In Cambodia only 2% of the people profess Jesus and she is very committed to change that through her dental education and services.

She is working through “TMS Global”, an organization that sends people around the world to spread the love and message of Jesus.  As a missionary, she is required to raise her funding through donations and sponsorships.
