Sermon Series

This month we’re celebrating our 40th Anniversary as a church. We’ll reflect some on how God invited us into His story, but we’ll focus primarily on how God continues to work in and through Asbury. After all, we’re JUST GETTING STARTED!

Join us for a Q & A session each Sunday at 5:00 PM in Room 100. Enjoy chatting about this Sunday’s sermon in a safe and informal session with Pastor Tom.


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.

Christmas at Asbury!

Christmas Is Not Your Birthday

In 2012, our congregation accepted a challenge to spend as much on a gift for Jesus as we did on gifts for our families. We called it Christmas Is Not Your Birthday (CINYB). Asbury Church has chosen to continue this tradition by collectively contributing towards a gift to honor Jesus on His birthday. We invite your family to take the CINYB challenge! Place a check in the offering with CINYB in the memo line or donate online at: asburyraleigh.org/serve/cinyb

Church Office Closed for Thanksgiving

The office will be closed to observe the holiday on Thursday, Nov 28 and Friday, Nov 29. Happy Thanksgiving!
