School supplies collected during VBS were delivered to our partner school, Ramos Elementary today. “I’d like to thank Asbury Church for your partnership and your continued support of Ramos Elementary, our students, and our families,” said new Ramos principal Sean Radcliffe. Thank you to all who donated and all who continue to foster this vital relationship.
