GIFTS OF HOPE

Our Gifts of Hope season of giving provides tangible ways for us to show God’s love to our neighbors right next door and around the world. Through packing days with our Kids & Students ministries, collections from Asbury Weekday, going on your own family shopping trips, participating with your group, or making a digital contribution, giving the gift of hope is a way we can make a big Kingdom difference as the Asbury family.

 

Last year in 2021, we packed 663 food boxes for families in our communities, collected 693 Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes to send around the world, and raised funds for 838 Greatest Journey discipleship programs. If each Asbury family participates in at least one collection this year, we can impact well over 2,000 families!

 

Whether you choose to give a physical or a digital gift, we are eagerly anticipating what the Lord will do through each of our collections as we share the gift of hope.

The Greatest Journey

DUE BY DECEMBER 4

When Samaritan’s Purse distributes shoeboxes, they are able to offer The Greatest Journey discipleship program to build on their connections with the kids and share more about the difference Jesus can make. Grab a gold Greatest Journey envelope from any Guest Services desk or receptionist desk on campus, fill it with $6 (or multiples for how many kids you’d like to impact!), and return it to the buckets at the collection points. Or, you can also give digitally to the Gifts of Hope fund!

Holiday Food Boxes

DUE BY DECEMBER 4

Help provide food for families in our community this Thanksgiving and Christmas. Grab a big cardboard food box from campus and bring it back filled with items on the attached packing lists for both the Madison Campus and Harvest Campus now through December 4. If you’d like to provide a Thanksgiving meal, return your box by November 20 to make sure local families get a box by then.
