THIS SUNDAY @ ASBURY
Sermon Preview: “What Would Jesus Undo”
Luke 18:9-14
Andy Mannes, Student Minister


This Week: Consecration Sunday – Part 2

This Sunday, we will have another opportunity to consecrate our commitments of giving for the coming year. If you were unable to attend last week’s service or did not return your estimate of giving for some reason, I invite you to do so this week. If you have misplaced your commitment card, additional cards will be available in both lobbies when you come for worship. I hope you will join us for this meaningful time of commitment and celebration. My prayer is that you will come to experience the joy that comes from knowing that your giving honors God and changes lives as we engage in relationships where Christ transforms! ~Pastor Tom
