Methodist churches have united again for the annual Asbury House Garage Sale, which is set 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday in the Faith Center of First United Methodist Church in Longview.
“The whole purpose of all of this is to give 60 children 3 to 5 years old a wonderful start to life,” said President Regina Fenderson of Asbury House .
