“The God Questions” Sermon Series

Is God real? Every Sunday through September 8, we will explore answers to this question and others that we all ask at some point in our lives with our new sermon series, “The God Questions”. Whether you’ve grown up in church, or are not sure you consider yourself a “Christian,” you will won’t want to miss a single week. Want to go deeper? Pastor Tom will also conduct Q & A bible study sessions on Sundays at 5:00 PM in the South Sanctuary (books sold separately). Bring questions from that morning’s sermon and invite someone to join you! Learn more and sign up for the extended sessions on our Special Studies page.

Pastoral Care
The Asbury Care Team (ACT) is here to care for you, under the leadership of our Lead Pastor, for general or specific life issues such as grief, illness, and life changes. For assistance and to meet our Care Team members, please visit our Care Team page.
