Asbury Newsletter

‘In Person’ Worship began on Sunday, July 5th
We will reopen in stages, following the reopening pattern of Indiana businesses. This means we will seek a reasonable balance between our desire to come together and our desire to help one another remain safe.

As you arrive to a Service you will find these instructions:

  • Please Practice social distancing
  • Masks are recommended
  • Offerings may be placed in baskets as you leave

Information about reopening of in person worship can be found here.

Videos will continue to be recorded for those who prefer to stay home. Thank you for your understanding and grace.

BOLT Vacation Bible School at Home
Instead of bringing your kids to VBS, we are bringing VBS to your kids! BOLT VBS helps kids to listen to, focus on, and follow Jesus! This 3 day Vacation Bible School is all done at home. There is a Bible lesson, a fun activity for the whole family, an origami craft each day, and some wonderful music!

We will have VBS open July 1-31 so you choose which 3 days you would like to participate. Kids ages 5-95 will enjoy this amazing time as you BOLT towards faith in Jesus. The materials needed for activities are all things you likely have at home. We are encouraging you to invite some neighbors, family, and friends to join us in our virtual VBS! The link that will be provided walks you through step by step and is super easy to navigate.

Registration will be open through June 30. Email Heidi Warren at hwarren@asburycolumbus.org include your children’s names, a home address, and an email. We will send the link and password to begin BOLT. We are so excited to offer this amazing VBS to you!

Asbury Kids and JAM Zoom Sessions!
Each Wednesday until we are able to meet at Asbury, we will have an online zoom class! We will have a time of prayer, fellowship and a fun activity you can do at home! This class is geared for children 1st – 6th grade. A meeting number and password are required to log on. Email Heidi at hwarren@asburycolumbus.org and leave your name and your preferred method to receive the meeting info (text or email) What a blessing that we are still able to gather together during this time! God is so good!

This class is independent of the Asbury Kids video that is recorded each week. Please continue to watch the teaching video and attend the zoom session for fellowship, a fun activity, and prayer time.

Sunday mornings at 11am, we will have an online zoom session for our JAM (Jesus and Me) class for kids 3 years through 3rd grade. (older kids through 5th can also enjoy this class.) We have a time of prayer, a Bible lesson, and a time of fellowship. A meeting number and password are required to log on. Email Heidi at hwarren@asburycolumbus.org and leave your name and your preferred method to receive the meeting info (text or email.)

Continuing to Support Asbury while Gathering is Suspended
Several people have asked about how they can contribute to Asbury when we are not permitted to gather for worship. Thank you for asking that question! There are still ways to give. Information about doing so can be found here.
