November Preaching Series – “Because of You”
Loving and caring for each other. Bringing peace and truth into darkness. Pointing each other toward Jesus. It’s the Church, and it’s a beautiful expression of God at work through us. Join us as we take a look at what’s coming to life Because of You.

Happy 39th Birthday Asbury Church!!!!!
This Sunday marks 39 years since Asbury’s Charter service. We are continually grateful for those before us and with us now as we live out His plan for our lives, both as individuals and as a body of believers. Stay tuned for details as we begin planning our 40th birthday celebration next year!

Welcome our New Kids Ministry Assistant!
We are grateful to welcome Liz Fulton as our new Kids Ministry Assistant.

New Blog Post Alert!
Jeff Severt is our latest blogger and he gives us some encouraging words…”God is not through with me yet, even though I believed otherwise. I will just bet that God also is not through with you. I know that where God guides, God provides. He has not taken you on the journey thus far only to abandon you now.” Check it out here!

Noah’s Ark Class – ”Forgotten God” begins this Sunday at 9:45 AM
“In this dynamic companion to the book Forgotten God, breakthrough author Francis Chan reminds us of the true source of the church’s power—the Holy Spirit. Chan contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and that without Him, we operate in our own strength, only accomplishing human-sized results. This seven-session video resource (click here to watch the trailer) offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives. It is designed to initiate and facilitate discussion, interaction and practical application of the message of Forgotten God.”

The seven sessions will be accessed through video via RightNow Media. Please email jeff@asburyraleigh.org for login info.
