Help Reopen the Church that Feeds Our Neighbors
We must raise money to complete renovations to the Asbury United Methodist Church fellowship hall and kitchen where service to the community, the hungry and the food insecure has helped many people for many, many years. The Hunger Coalition was started at Asbury.
During COVID the members of Asbury and their community partners were no longer able to prepare meals for the soup kitchen or meals for delivery without safe floors and mechanical equipment. The community responded in 2020 with $145,000 to meet additional construction needs in a time of rapidly rising costs. Work began in November, 2020.
Work is nearly finished on the completely renewed fellowship hall, newly laid out kitchen, and enlarged restrooms. During renovations unforeseeable issues were identified: hidden structural problems, undersized water and sewer lines, window repairs, and code required stair access to the rear roof. These extras necessitate additional fundraising.
To complete the job and open the doors, we must raise another $25,000.
