What else can you do to connect with the community of Asbury during this time of social distancing?

  • Connect with at least three people that you usually connect with on a Sunday morning (give them a call, mail them an uplifting note, say hi on FB). Contact the office if there is someone asking for support or other needs.
  • Check in with those who are home-bound due to weakened immune systems and offer to run errands for them. Offer to buy them a to-go meal from a local restaurant. This industry has been hit hard.
  • In a LYF group or Bible Study? See if your group wants to connect via Zoom, an online video conferencing program.
  • Even though it is hard to draw physically closer to others, you can draw closer to God through a daily discipline of devotional reading (see the Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day)
  • You can give your regular tithe or offering safely and securely online at www.AsburyUnitedMethodist.org/give. You can also mail in or personally drop off your offering during office hours (Mon-Thurs 9am-2pm) to 1500 S. Campbell Ave. Springfield, MO 65807 or call the office at (417) 865-1335 and someone can come pick it up for you (please leave a message if you call outside of office hours).

 

Since we are learning more about this virus daily, we will re-assess our current status and share any updates through this webpage.

 

In this current situation, we look again at Jeremiah 29:11 with fresh eyes: 

“Know the plans I have for you,” say the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”


God’s plans are not for disaster…God did not plant this virus in our lives as a sort of pestilence, but there are plans for a future and a hope. That is what we should set our eyes on, taking care and caution on our way to that place. We can get through this, as a church, as a community, as children of God.
