As a result of the annual the church furnace inspection, the DC government inspector shut down the church furnace. It must be replaced before the fall/winter season.
The estimated replacement cost is approximately $60,000 - $90,000. To that end, we have started the Fund-the-Furnace Drive with a goal of raising funds by September 17th. The boiler installation will start in August and completed expected by September 30th.
We ask that you prayerfully consider what you can contribute. We give God thanks and praise for the donations already received.
There are multiple ways to give:
• Donate during worship offertory using specially provided envelopes from the ushers.
• Donate online through Asbury E-Giving
• Credit card swipe via IPAD during the worship service
• Text your amount to 84321 (E.g. 20). Follow instructions in the reply text.
It’s never too late. The Summer Choir welcomes all adults and youth who enjoy singing to join us in August. Rehearsals are Saturdays 11 am-12:30 pm beginning July 22nd. Contact Randolph Scott, Director 301.332.2565 / email@example.com to participate.
