Coming this March – I Love My Church!

March begins the new sermon series “I Love My Church!” Jesus commands that all of our interactions must be bathed in love. Through this series, we’ll explore different ways we can show love to other church members and to the community around us.


Financial Workshops – Each Sunday, March 1 – 22 at 6:00 PM

One of Asbury’s Values is to support our families. Next month, to support our families with their finances- one of the world’s largest stressors – we will be leaning on the expertise of Thrivent Financial. Thrivent is an organization designed to help us all connect our faith and finances. Asbury’s own Jarrett Wood will be helping to lead us through four different workshops. Each session will be on a Sunday night from 6-7 pm with childcare provided (please register so we can plan on numbers!) – More info? asburyraleigh.org/thrivent
