I am sorry to inform everyone that our dear friend and faithful church member Marsha Manke has died very suddenly following a brief illness. Since her family is in town now, we are going to host a visitation and time of remembrance for Marsha in Asbury Center on Sunday, February 21st, at Noon. Food will be offered, for the sake of the out-of-town family who will attend. Caryl Drabick is coordinating this reception. Please contact her with your donations ( The time of remembrance will begin at Noon, followed by the opportunity to greet Marsha’s family. The food will be served at the end, so that it will be possible for folks to attend who do not feel comfortable being present while the food is being served. As with all of our other events, proper masking and distancing will be observed. – Pastor Tom Strandburg
