NEWS AND NOTES

CINYB Preview

Christmas Is Not Your Birthday (CINYB) is launching November 26! Are you ready to show radical love this holiday season? 

New Blog Postnew blog post

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 on our Church Blog. This week, our Director of Groups and Service, Sharon Hensley, shares an update on what is going on in Haiti. As we prepare for CINYB, this will surely put our hearts and minds in the right perspective this holiday season. Read it here!

cantataMark Your Calendars – Christmas Cantata is Coming

“We gather to tell the story of Emmanuel, God with us! We gather to remember this story, to wait, and watch for Him to come again – even now. Come, Lord Jesus!” This December, the Asbury Celebration Choir presents “Sing Joy to All the World,” a Christmas cantata with orchestration and narration. It celebrates the promise that joy comes to those who wait; that following the long dark night, the breaking of dawn brings joy for the new day. Incorporating new melodies with familiar carols in a work that ranges from contemplative to celebratory, you will not want to miss this moving musical celebration.  Join us in Asbury North’s Worship Center on Saturday, December 9 at 7:00 PM and on Sunday, December 10 at 10:00  AM (a combined service).
