End Of Year Giving

End of Year Giving

This year, we all learned that we can't do faith alone. In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve had to pivot and work even harder to reach outside our church walls. Our LiveStream and YouTube worship experiences have been watched over 3,300 hours and have allowed over 150 new people to worship online with us, even when our doors were closed. We’ve hosted 147 people virtually in bible study or LifeGroups this year to foster connections in our faith community and a deeper relationship with God through biblical teachings.

Engaging in relationships where Christ transforms is the mission at Asbury Church. As the

pandemic unfolded, causing food shortages, demands for blood, and feelings of isolation, we knew we were called to step in to offer hope and comfort. That's why we packaged 80,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger, which will help feed those who most need it. We pulled together to donate blood, and offered new opportunities for people and families to connect in safe, outdoor worship services on Sundays and through fellowship events like our Fall Festival and our recent Cookies & Cocoa.

We thank you for supporting God’s work, particularly in a season that has been tough for so many. There are wonderful opportunities to share God's love hidden within this difficult time, and with your help, Asbury Church seeks to meet them. As the year comes to a close, we are facing a shortfall of nearly $50,000. Will you prayerfully consider a year-end gift to Asbury Church today? All donations received online at www.asburyraleigh.org/give or postmarked December 31 will help to meet this need. Thank you.


Online and Outdoors only through January 10th

To do our part to minimize the spread of COVID-19, we will be worshiping online and outdoors only through January 10th.

Dive into scripture asbury raleigh

Dive Into Scripture in 2021

The Bible is full of hidden gems waiting to be uncovered. In this 5 week series you will learn how to uncover those precious truths and hear God speak to you in practical ways, together as part of the Asbury community. We will start from square one, no Bible knowledge is needed, and through learning the inductive method of studying Scripture, you will be able to:

  • - more fully understanding any passage—what it says, what it meant to its original audience, and what it means today
  • - allow Scripture to reveal itself, to speak on its own terms in ways that overcome our limitations and presuppositions
  • allow the Bible to surprise us, challenge us, comfort us, or correct us
  • learn with your head and follow with your heart (not just an intellectual exercise, but a whole person experience)
