Neighbor-to-Neighbor Breakfast & Undergarment/Toiletries Give-a-way

Asbury hosts a breakfast every 4th Sunday in the fellowship hall. Undergarments and toiletries are distributed.

This is great opportunity to fellowship with and serve our neighbors. You are invited to share the Word in speech, song, or poetry, serve food, chat with our neighbors, distribute personal care items, or offer your gifts and talents as the spirit moves you.

Breakfast starts approximately 9:00am. Volunteers should arrive by 8:15 am for orientation. Continental breakfast provided to volunteers. For the breakfast, contact Jesse James / jjames_57@hotmail.com or Carlotta Jones / jonesc12@hotmail.com. For personal care items, contact Jeanarta McEachron / jeanarta.mceachron@gmail.com.
