General Conference 2020/Postponed


Dear Asbury, 

            Many of you probably already know about the recent executive order from the Mayor of Orange County.  The order is to “Shelter in place” from Thursday March 25th at 11pm and it expires Thursday April 9th. What does Shelter in place mean for Asbury?  Well, it means that we are all forced to do ministry from home.  It means that we as a community will need to rely on technology more than we ever have.  It means that we will need to work together to take care of each other during these next two weeks.  

What is Asbury able to do over the next two weeks?
Connect – We are still able to utilize technology to stay in touch with people.  Please make sure to write letters, make phone calls, facetime, zoom, and continue to reach out to people you know to check in on them.  Remind each person you know that we are in this together and you are walking with them.  
Serve – We are still able to serve neighbors and friends through the “Hands and Feet” ministry.  We are able to get groceries, medicine, cleaning supplies, or other necessary items for people who are unable to leave their homes. 
Love – We are still in the season of Lent.  During this season of growth Asbury will continue to offer worship via Facebook Live, some small group classes will meet via zoom, Lenten Luncheons will be broadcast digitally, and Lenten Devotionals will continue to go out every day.  Take advantage of this time to grow in your faith.  
Support – We are still able to support the mission of God through our “prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.”  Asbury needs your continued support so we can fulfill our mission in these difficult circumstances. 

It is important to acknowledge there are some things we will not be able to do. The church office will be closed for the next two weeks.  We will still be able to receive mail and check phone calls periodically.  In the midst of our difficult circumstances I pray we never forget the mission that binds us together, “To know the love of Jesus Christ, and pass it on!” 

Grace and Peace,
Rev. Mike Luzinski
