“The Common Rule: Habits of Purpose For An Age of Distraction” By Justin Whitmel Earley

Five Week Study Starting Wed. Jan. 10 at 7PM

In the New Year, we will be starting a sermon series called “RESET: Holy Habits for Distracted People.” To accompany this sermon series, Pastor Cambron will be leading a book study on “The Common Rule: Habits of Purpose in an Age of Distraction” by Justin Whitmel Earley.

In this five-week class, will learn together how to establish habits in our homes and lives that will form us into resilient disciples. This is a great class to take if you are looking for ways in your families to be freed from technology addiction, busyness, media consumption, and the many other things that distract us from the good things of God. Join us to discover the freedom found in following a common rule in an age of distraction.

Help the Goshorns in Peru during the COVID Crisis

Peru was the first country in the region to implement quarantine lockdown, but despite that it has the second-highest number of COVID-19 cases in South America. The people just can’t survive without work and being able to eat. The Goshorns have been taking food and medical supplies and helping with housing for both native Peruvians and Venezuelan refugees. Their need has increased from $3,600 per month to $4,400 per a month for food, medicine, diapers etc.

If you would like to help you can mail a check to: TMS Global PO Box 936559 Atlanta, GA 31193-6559 (put Goshorn acct #0540 in the memo section) or give a check to Asbury United Methodist Church with Goshorn Fund in the memo line.

Thanks for your help!  Vern H. for the Goshorn Committee
