How You Can Help

The Children’s Ministry would like to invite you to participate in a new ministry. We are asking everyone in the Asbury community to make or color greeting cards that we can bring to members who are struggling with an illness or have lost a loved one during this time of social distancing.

Below you will find a variety of examples and instructions for making homemade cards, but if you are not up for scissors and glue, we also have some printable cards that you simply color. We want you to have fun and be creative!

When you are finished with your cards, you can put them in the little red library in front of the Children’s Ministry building. There will be a large plastic bag labeled “Card Ministry.” You can put your card(s) inside of that bag.

This is an ongoing ministry, so please continue to make cards. The more cards we get, the more people we can reach. Extra cards will be given to COVID patients who are in isolation in our local hospitals.

Click on the links below to see example DIY cards and instructions for making each card. Please make sure you sign your cards before returning them.

These are just a few ideas to get you started. You are welcome to create your own designs. Pinterest is a great resource for ideas.

Below are a list of printable and colorable cards that are categorized by age and bible verse. Feel free to browse, as we have lots to choose from!
