Coordinator: Kyle Deroche,
It's that time of year again where we show our support for the youth of our church and their big summer mission trip! The Asbury community always comes through year after year to help us reach our goal.
This year will be a bit different due to how spread out our members are across our in person and online worship experiences. Our theme this year is "Invest in our Youth" and the way we're encouraging the Asbury community to do that is to purchase "Shares of Stock" in our mission trip.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We are selling shares at $20 per share. Simply give whatever amount you'd like to give towards our trip we will send you a "Stock Certificate" in the mail, filled out and signed by teens going on the mission trip, showing how many share's you've purchased. (i.e. If you give $100, you'll receive a certificate for 5 "shares of stock" in our trip!)
There are two main ways you can give:
You can simply click the "donate now" button below to be taken to our online giving page where you can choose to give directly to the "Youth Mission Trip." Just give whatever dollar amount you'd like to give and we'll convert that into "stock" and send you your certificate. Be sure to put in your mailing address so we can send it to you!
You can grab an envelope at any of our envelope boards around the Asbury campus (near the Sanctuary, Spiritwind Courtyard, Adult Sunday School Wing, & Children's Ministry Building). In that envelope is a return envelope that you can place your donation in and an orange information card so we can send you your "Stock Certificate". Be sure to fill that out and turn it in with your donation. You can turn in your envelope on Sundays in the offering plate, mail it in to the church, or drop it by the church office during business hours during week.
HOW MUCH DO YOU NEED TO RAISE?
Since we were able to do half of our fundraiser last year before the lockdown and we have some available funds donated to the youth ministry, our goal for this year's trip is significantly lower! So our total for this year's fundraiser is $7000 (or 350 shares of stock)!
WHERE IS THE MISSION TRIP THIS YEAR?
This year our teens and adults will be traveling to Atlanta GA. to work with inner city mission organizations to help serve those in need. This is the same trip we had planned last year before it was canceled due to the pandemic. If the trip has to be postponed again until next summer for any reason, we will roll all funds raised over towards that trip.
