Christmas Eve Offering
As an act of faith and generosity, we will once again donate our entire Christmas Eve offering to ministries helping people in need. The largest portion of your Christmas Eve gifts will support the Louisiana United Methodist Children's Home in building their new campus in Southeast Louisiana. When completed, this residential facility near Hammond will care for children between 7 and 14 years old who are unable to live in their family home. Together, we can offer our gifts of generosity to do the work of God's love for some of the most vulnerable of God's children.
Additionally, we will donate a portion to Love, INC, our partner ministry in Lafayette that works to assist our neighbors in poverty.
You may contribute by being present on Christmas Eve and dropping your offering in the plate that is passed during all of our worship services. If you can not make it to worship during that time, you may give by sending a check to Asbury UMC Lafayette, 101 Live Oak Blvd, Lafayette, LA 70503 with "Christmas Eve offering" in the memo line.
Online giving is available at the link below. Please select "Christmas Eve Special Offering" from the dropdown menu.
