Help Us Work Towards Our Goal of Packaging 1,000,000 Meals

Since 2009, we have packaged 863,918 Rise Against Hunger meals – and we are aiming to increase that to a total of 1,000,000 meals this year! That means that we need to package 136,082 RAH meals this year! This is a huge undertaking but….


We are seeking 200 or more volunteers on March 24th at 9 AM to help make this a reality. We will package up to 60,000 meals at the Rise Against Hunger warehouse. Please register (required) at bit.ly/acmillionmeals and invite friends, family, co-workers, neighbors and even strangers to this awesome community event! Asbury, we can do it!!!!

New Blog Post

new blog postAlmost every week, someone within our church administration (and maybe within our community) will share life nuggets with us and be a source of knowledge and inspiration through their stories! Be sure to check them out every week (usually Mondays) on our Church Blog. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would you change? Or would you change anything? Youth Pastor, Andrew Mannes, helps us put all of this into #perspective and reveals a masterpiece! This is a must read for all ages!  Click here to read “Perspective.”
