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:

MISSION OPPORTUNITY – NEIGHBORS HELPING NEIGHBORS

Many of our friends and neighbors need help to live at home and remain independent. Those who don’t drive need transportation to doctors appointments, the pharmacy and grocery stores. Faith in Action is an interfaith organization which strives to provide this service but they are in need of volunteers to be able to help more people. The Delaware Ecumenical Council can provide a rider for your car insurance to cover this Good Samaritan activity as well as a small stipend to help offset the cost of gas. Volunteer applications are available in the church office. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer please contact Lois Bowers (659-2910) or Cilla Ricker (653-4497).  If you would like additional information you can also contact Debbie Lewis of Faith in Action at 302-943-4018.  Debbie will be speaking at all services on May 19.
