Worship This Week - Come and See – John 1:40-42 "Precious Cargo"

As Christians one of the things we are called to do is to share the good news of Jesus. We hear commandments like “Go and make disciples…”, “Let your light shine…”, and “Feed my sheep” and it seems like a heavy burden. That was not Jesus’ intent. In this series we will examine the power of invitations. We will examine how we can grow in our faith and how we can easily promote our faith as Jesus calls us to do. Come and See how God can work in and through us! 


Backpack Buddies Meal Packaging - Saturday January 30th at 10am

Lynn Road Needs Us! They are ready to resume Backpack Buddies and we are ready to serve! Join us in the North Building next Saturday to social distance and package much-needed backpacks for our food-insecure students at Lynn Road. We need hands to help make 100 meals for our partner school. Questions? Contact Crista (crista@asburyraleigh.org)


Unfortunately due to Covid, Lifetouch for church directories has closed their doors and will not be printing our directory. We have been able to obtain all the family photos that were taken last year and we are in the process of making our own directories in our database, Realm. Please consider uploading your family photo to Realm so we can have the most current photo. If you need assistance with this process, please contact Wendy at wendy@asburyraleigh.org
