Solar Oven Partners
Asbury is committed to provide an oven a month this year. Each oven is $150 with a total of $1,800 needed. To date, you have given $1,190. Thanks for helping place solar ovens in the hands of those in need. SOP partners with indigenous churches and organizations to help alleviate human suffering and deforestation. Mark your check or offering envelope for Solar Oven Partners! Thank you!
Solar Oven Partners Potholders
An opportunity for you to serve: If you would be interested in sewing Solar Oven Potholders, there are several cut-out in Room 106. Just pick up as many as you want to sew and the directions and return the finished potholders back to Room 106. Thank you for helping to provide potholders for the people who receive a solar oven as these ovens help change the lives of families.
Asbury is partnering with other United Methodist Churches – and Samaritan’s Feet – to help provide new shoes to Sioux Falls area children.
Samaritan’s Feet is an organization that shares hope with children in the U.S. and around the world by washing their feet, giving them a new pair of shoes and helping them believe that their dreams can come true. www.samaritansfeet.org
Asbury has set a goal of providing 180 pairs of shoes ($3,600). Donate money for shoes, $20 per pair, or any amount is appreciated. This year’s shoe distribution is Saturday, August 18.
We will have a special coffee hour on Sunday, June 24 to support this mission, Caramel Roll Sunday. Please come and enjoy some sweet treats and help us work toward our goal of providing shoes locally.
