  • Parking lot issues: The building construction workers had to move their supplies to the end of the drop off line aisle. You can still drop off under the covered walkway, but you will have to turn around to exit the parking lot. This could cause some extra congestion.

  • Dennis Bailey is bringing back the Coffee Bar soon. Be on the lookout for this as the weather gets cooler.
  • The Prize Store is quickly approaching and could use items such as music supplies, gift cards, hair accessories, games, books, electronics, candy etc. Please bring items to the Information Table between now and December 2.
  • If you are on a crew that sets up, does mid-day crew, or clean-up crew, please let Kathy Love know when you have to be absent, so we can make other arrangements.
  • Asbury is a Cold Weather Shelter location when the nighttime temperatures drop below 32 degrees. The guests will be picked up by bus on Fridays at 6:15 am. The shelter clean-up crew will be working to restore the church for our classes on Friday and hope to be done by 8:00. Please offer to help or move into the Sanctuary until the church is ready for PSHP. Thank you for your consideration.
