Sermon Series

This March through the series “I Love My Church!”, we will learn WHY God designed the Church and how we can find fulfillment and spiritual growth through loving God and His church.

A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this all men will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another.  John 13:34-35

Lent Challenge Devotion Feb 26 – Apr 12

This devotion challenge titled “Lent: Remembering the Life of Jesus” will help you grow closer to God during this Lent season. It’s available by downloading the YouVersion Bible App in Apple or Google Store.

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 independent 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
