Pastor Ken, along with Sharon and Sam Lowman traveled to Raleigh in May to accept the 2017 Governor’s Medallion Award for Volunteer Service on behalf of Asbury United Methodist Church. The volunteers at Asbury UMC received the award for their 2016 service at Asbury Academy. Governor Roy Cooper talked about the great work taking place at Asbury Academy and the ARC (Asbury Resource Center). Special thanks to Kathy Vinzant and the United Way of Lincoln County for the inspiration to make this partnership happen and to Marybeth Avery and the staff at Asbury Academy for allowing us to serve alongside them. It’s great to see how many people and churches are serving Asbury Academy in 2017. We can’t wait to see what the future holds!
Our Lincoln County Missional Network of United Methodist Churches was awarded Volunteer(s) of Year for ALL of Lincoln County, NC! We are especially thankful for all the staff and students at Asbury School who have welcomed us in and bless us each week. We invite you to join us at Asbury Academy on Friday mornings. Come be a part of all the good that God is doing in our community.
