Since 2012, the Asbury Church community has celebrated Christmas differently. We were challenged to spend as much on a gift for Jesus as we did on gifts for our families. Through acts of sacrifice, service, and celebration, we are proud to once again present Christmas Is Not Your Birthday (CINYB).
Asbury has chosen to collectively contribute towards a gift to honor Jesus on His birthday by supporting a school in Sous Raille, Haiti, preparing and sending meals around the world with Rise Against Hunger, and assisting our friends at Lynn Road Elementary School here in North Raleigh.
Extra donations have funded specil intiatives in Haiti including community adult literacy programs, a new kitchen, and three additional classrooms. Pre-K through Grade 6 enrollment now totals 240 students.
