Thank you so much for supporting the mission and ministry of Asbury. Your generosity is a vital part of our work together to grow, live and, share with all the love of Christ. Every gift is important, and we offer several options for how you can offer your gift.
2021 Pledge Campaign
We also encourage you to consider making a pledge for your annual giving. Your pledge helps make generosity a regular spiritual practice and helps Asbury plan ministry funding throughout the year. Feel free to read more about why we pledge, and our Pledge FAQ. You can make a pledge by indicating so when you set up recurring giving, or you can fill out an online pledge card.
Christmas Eve Offering
This hurricane season was devastating for our neighbors in Southwest Louisiana, and Asbury stepped in to help in spectacular ways. In that same spirit of helpfulness and in keeping with our tradition of congregational generosity, we will give our entire Christmas Eve Offering to a sister church who is experiencing tremendous hardship. Westlake United Methodist Church, just outside of Lake Charles, received extensive damage to both its church building and parsonage. They are a small church with a big spirit, and they need help.
We look forward to our members joining in to share Asbury's spirit of generosity and make a difference in the lives of our neighbors in Westlake, LA!
You may give your offering at any Christmas Eve service, make an online contribution, or mail a check to the church office at 101 Live Oak Blvd, Lafayette, LA 70503 (note “Christmas Eve Offering” on your check).
Online giving is available at the link below. Please select "Christmas Eve Special Offering" from the dropdown menu.
