On Sunday, October 1st, it was announced that during the season of Advent, we would have a conversation about the early worship service and its continuation in 2018. As it was announced, there would be a time for conversation, in which we would hear from those especially faithful to the early worship service. This conversation will happen on Sunday, October 15, at 3:00 pm in the main Sanctuary. During this time, we want to hear from all of you and have an open, crucial conversation about the announcement and what it means. We ask that you continue in prayer for God’s direction and will for us as a church and for our conversation that Sunday afternoon. This conversation will take place as the main topic during the Executive Council meeting, and that will be the agenda for the evening: simply, a conversation. We will end our time together promptly at 5:00 pm by having communion.
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 29TH, we’re having Trunk or
Treat @ Asbury from 5:00 – 6:30 pm! We need a total
of 40 trunks! Please sign up if you are going to
decorate your trunk. Prizes will be given for
best trunk, and the best adult, boy and girl costumes.
Everyone is encouraged to wear costumes! Oh, and
candy! Bring lots of candy! There will be hot dogs, popcorn and drinks provided for everyone by the Children’s Ministry! Feel free to invite friends and family. It will be fun, festive—and safe—for all who join in! Contact Susan Bounds at email@example.com for more info!
J.O.Y. Group will meet at 6:30 pm on Thursday, October 26th at Papito’s Grill on Hwy 49. (Old Conestoga Building) If you need a ride, please let Pam Powers or Terry West know and we will make sure you get there. J.O.Y. stands for “Just Older Youth.” It was started many years ago by some of the senior members at Asbury, but everyone is invited and we have some joining us that are in their 40s, so age is not really a factor. If you have never joined us and would like to, just come on. We always enjoy good food, good fellowship and always have a great time.
HELP FEED THE BAND Hamburger buns, individual chips, Gatorade and water is needed. Bring to the church this week!
FINAL FOOTBALL TAILGATING Asbury will have light tailgating (pop-up tents and chairs) at the last home football game (Petal v Meridian) this Friday, Oct. 20th. Please bring other dishes and desserts to share!
DON’T FORGET We are still collecting cans for Brandi’s Hope! They take aluminum soda cans and cans from canned goods, like vegetables. A recycling box can be found in the Youth Building, next to the Coke machine. Brandi’s Hope is a Community Services organization for those with special needs. They operate several homes in the Petal area, including a day home on Herrington Road. Please support them with your cans!
PARENTS OF INFANTS AND TODDLERS: Please label all diaper bags, bottles, etc., for your child in the nursery. If necessary, labels will be available at the church as well.
