Ashland United Methodist - Columbia SC

"Love and Service in God's Community"

Ashland began from the Dutch Fork Mission of 35 committed "missioners" from Salem, Union, and Virginia Wingard United Methodist Churches. Since its first meeting in the Seven Oaks School on March 6, 1977, the mission continues to evolve from the firstpeople who worshiped together on that morning. Today our community provide outreach programs to adults, senior citizens, youth, and families in the extended St. Andrews area of northwest Columbia, SC.

Mission: A United Methodist Congregation whose purpose, as a community of faith, is to worship and serve God, living and spreading the Gospel of His love to the church family and the world, in Christ's name

MESSAGE FROM REV. EFIRD:

The leadership of AUMC met on Friday to assess our plans for the next few weeks. We have all been paying attention to the news and information coming out of the community, the state, and the nation. Many institutions are postponing activities until April 30th and advising everyone to stay home and to practice social distancing as much as possible. It is imperative that we follow these practices so that the spread of the COVID-19 virus will be disrupted.

Therefore, all activity at AUMC will be postponed until the end of April. Sadly, this means Palm Sunday service, all Holy Week services, the Easter Egg Hunt, Easter morning worship services, and any other meetings and/or proceedings will all be delayed.

Staff presence in the church office will be altered. If you call during regular office hours (M-TH, 9:00-3:30) and no one answers, please leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as possible.

The leadership will convene in two weeks via Zoom chat to assess any needs and to evaluate if any changes are necessary. It is our intention that the first Sunday we all return for corporate worship, be in May, June, or whenever, this first Sunday to return will be our Easter celebration.

Suspension of our gatherings does not mean suspension of individual spiritual practices. Continue to reach out to your neighbors. Continue to pray for others. Continue to worship. Now, more than ever, we need to be more intentional about pursuing connection, prayer, and worship. These may be tough times, but we serve a tough God. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Philippians 4:13).

Don’t forget:
We will have another online worship service this Sunday. The video is found on You Tube, on our website, or linked in the e-mail blast. If you have trouble accessing the video, please call the church office for help. All videos can be watched at your leisure after being posted.

Please continue to support the ministries of our church by:
e-giving (www.ashlandumc.org),
bringing your support to the church office, Monday-Thursday, 9:00 am-3:30 pm,
dropping in the secured mailbox outside.

Continue reading, “A Place at the Table.” We are on Day 27.

Quote of the Day
““My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far, I’ve finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already.”
—Dave Barry
