A letter from Asbury’s Board of Trustees regarding the 2018-2020 Capital Campaign
To the Asbury Community,
The Asbury Board of Trustees would like to formally announce that the Capital Campaign projects have all been successfully completed. The last piece, the roof above the original part of the church, was completed just a few weeks ago. On behalf of all church leadership, Trustees would like to again thank everyone who faithfully contributed to this campaign. Not only did we, as a church, raise the necessary funds to take care of the roof, the Memorial Garden retaining wall, the Sanctuary wall, and several HVAC issues, but we are happy to say that these projects have also come in just under budget.
As we celebrate the completion of these projects, we’re also looking forward to celebrating the 100th birthday of Asbury Church this October! While the Church gathered in various places in Allentown for the first 55 years, we’ve called our current facility home for 45 years. With any facility the age and size of our Springhouse Road building, Asbury continues to have ongoing facility needs. To address these needs, a Capital Improvements Fund was established last year. This fund gives the Trustees some reserve funding to be able to tackle any emergency repairs without having to dig further into the annual church budget or into the church’s banking accounts. Accordingly, we respectfully ask that you consider contributing to this fund as you are able. This will help ensure the maintenance and upkeep of the church building for many more years to come.
Again, our sincere thanks for all that you do in support of Asbury and its ministries. We certainly cannot do what we do without you.
Asbury’s Board of Trustees
