We are starting a new series at Asbury First called Outreach Sunday. One Sunday a month, we will highlight a specific outreach ministry, sharing the stories, presenting current needs and challenges, and bringing all of Asbury First together in celebration of our work to Do More Good throughout our community.
Our first Outreach Sunday will feature the Dining and Caring Center (D&CC). This outreach ministry has been a part of Asbury First for over 25 years, located in the lower level of 1010 East Ave (the location of our future Outreach Center). The Dining and Caring Center offers a hot meal to anyone in need, along with care items such as laundry facilities, haircuts, showers, toiletries, etc. This Sunday, you will get to hear more about the stories of the D&CC, celebrating the good work done there every day.
On Sunday, September 22, we will be hosting an Art Silent Auction (see a few examples above) to benefit the Dining and Caring Center's budget. The art was donated by the Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester, and we are grateful to be able to fundraise in this way for the D&CC. The art will be displayed throughout the Welcome Hall and Gathering Center, and anonymous bidding will take place in the Welcome Hall. 100% of every dollar raised will go to the D&CC's budget.
Thank you to the Outreach Committee for bringing leadership to our new Outreach Sunday series. Thank you to the Dining and Caring Center for sharing their stories. And thank you to all of Asbury First—we are truly better together.
