Jones School Donations

IMG_3502Our Bread Tin offering for July was for the purpose of buying school supplies for needy children at Jones Elementary School next door to the church.  It was absolutely amazing to see the generous outpouring of support for Jones by the congregation at Asbury Memorial as we were able to raise over $1000!  Madeline Moseley was able to deliver them to the school this week.  IMG_3501Here are a few of the pictures of that drop off of school supplies and backpacks.  Thanks for your support of our local schools and of all our mission work that we do at Asbury Memorial.  Your gifts go a long way in making our schools and our community a better place for the less fortunate.

Habitat House Build

 

 

If you are interested in helping us with our upcoming 24th Habitat House Build, you will have ample opportunity in the coming weeks and months!  There is a PDF flyer attached to this posting where you can read more about it if you’d like.  Dr. Merritt Moseley, our Missions Committee Chairperson, is seeking volunteers who can help during our assigned days.  Those first volunteers will be working on the floor of the house.  If you’d like to help, please send Merritt an email at moseley@unca.edu and he can get you set up.

Thanks for all your faithful help with this important mission opportunity!

Walking Tour of Asheville

walkingtourimage1Summer is here…and you’re invited to join us after worship this Sunday (July 12th) for Lemonade on the Lawn followed by a walking tour of downtown Asheville.  The church has been planning some quarterly hikes around the wonderful area we call home recently, and our next one will be a bit different in that we will be hiking downtown on the Urban Trail.  If you are new to the area and would like to learn more about this great town in which we live, or if you are a long-time resident and just want to get out and about and have some fun in the sun we cordially invite you to join us.  We will carpool to Pack Square (after Lemonade on the Lawn) and embark on our 1.7 mile hike that will take in some thirty different stops with artwork and history at each pause.
