Special Announcement Regarding the Third ServiceWith much prayer and careful consideration, the Asbury Leadership Board and the Asbury Lead Staff feel led to postpone the addition of the third service at this time. We look forward to the time when we have filled the vacancies in our staff and this new service can be added with excellence. In the meantime, we encourage any families or persons who have considered attending the 11:00 AM Traditional Service to continue to do so. If you have questions, they can be directed to members of the Leadership Board, Lead Staff or Pastor Tom Newman.
