Not Your Typical Easter Series…

We know what Easter is all about…the death and resurrection of Jesus. But is it possible that there’s more hope and freedom for our lives right now than what we are experiencing in the day-to-day?

This is Love is a new three-week series starting on Easter Sunday. What we know is that God loves us – but what we could spend a lifetime discovering is just how deep this love is, and how powerful it is to transform us from the inside out. Click here to see the promo video…

Ask a friend or neighbor to join you as we go through this awesome series together! Easter Sunday will feature a sunrise service at 6:30 AM led by our Student Ministry, family photos taken in front of the flower cross (don’t forget to bring fresh flowers for the cross), an Easter Egg Hunt after the 9:30 AM service, and our Celebration Choir and Handbells will lead us in worship at the 11:00 AM service. You won’t want to miss this Easter at Asbury!

PLEASE SLOW DOWN When Entering Asbury Church Campus
Asbury Friends and Guests! We’ve got a great word for you this Easter Sunday (and the next 2 weeks after), as we talk about love and forgiveness. We know you don’t want to miss this weekend’s worship services so please be sure to be on time; BUT PLEASE follow all traffic regulations (specifically stop signs and speed limits) as you enter the church campus through the surrounding neighborhoods. This also applies to our Preschool parents when dropping off and picking up children from school during the week. We have great relationships with our neighborhoods and want to ensure everyone’s safety is our top priority! Bottom Line: SLOW DOWN #beagoodneighbor
