If you are searching for church this Christmas, we know we are the place for you. We will have amazing worship with your favorite Christmas songs and an inspiring Christmas message!
COVID may have us worshiping digitally this year but we are still ready to connect with you!
We would love to get to know you. We want to see lives changed here by the power of Jesus Christ, and we see that happen every week when someone steps through our doors. We look forward to meeting you this Christmas!
We can't wait to celebrate Jesus and his birth with an inspiring message that will be relevant and practical to your everyday life! 2020 has been strange – but when you think about the Christmas Story, strange is not new to God. Our Christmas focus is “A Strange Way to Save the World” and we would LOVE to have you join us for our best dose of “normal” and, more importantly, HOPE on Christmas Eve.
FAMILY FOCUSED FEATURE AT BOTH SERVICES
Ready for your kids to have a blast? Then bring them to Christmas at Asbury Church as we worship together with this fun and creative event (and there just might be some surprises!)
LIGHT AND COMMUNION AT ALL SERVICES
As we celebrate Jesus' birth, we make it a priority in every service to celebrate communion together and to pass on the light of Christ as a marker of Christmas Eve. We will use Fingerlights for our outdoor service (and have some available at other services for our youngest kids)
CHRISTMAS EVE FAQ
Have questions? We have the answers!
Where are you located?
6612 Creedmoor Road - We are in the heart of North Raleigh, just north of the intersection of Creedmoor Road and Lynn Road and just south of the Stonehenge Shopping Center.
What time is service?
We're offering 4 Worship Experiences this Christmas Eve:
2pm - Family Focused, Traditional Worship in our South Building (with recording available on YouTube in the afternoon)
4pm - Family Focused, Outdoor Worship in our Amphitheatre.
We have plenty of parking for each service - no special directions or places needed! Our campus does have a "one way" traffic flow to help keep pedestrians safe.
Is there something for my kids?
We have a special interactive kids time at our 2pm and 4pm services! Ms. Crista and her special (and super funny!) co-host will help us all remember the reason for the season. This is in addition to our usual communion, music, and sermon time that will be in all services!
Are you taking COVID precautions?
We have various safety measures in place while we gather for worship in this season. We require masks to be worn at all times while gathering indoors and ask that everyone pre-register on EventBrite so that we are sure to have space with social distancing measures. All our spaces are cleaned between use, hand sanitizer is readily available, and we have made most of worship as touchless and contactless as possible.
We have continued our LiveStream, Facebook Live, and YouTube options for those who are not ready to gather as well as Outdoor Worship for those not ready to worship indoors.
Our seats are often more than the minimum 6ft apart:
What is a service like?
Every service features music, prayer, and a sermon. Outdoor worship is led by our Worship leader on guitar, Contemporary Worship has a full worship band, and traditional worship features piano, singers, and liturgy. Most services last around 60 minutes.
What do I wear?
Whatever you are comfortable in! Our services will have everything from shorts to suits depending on the person and the weather. For outdoor worship, everyone dresses as the weather requires (bringing blankets or fans as needed).
Do I need to let you know I'm new?
We would LOVE for you to introduce yourself to our staff or our welcome team - but you never have an obligation to do so! We are here for you whenever you need it - but we won't put you on the spot!
Have you taken the "Christmas Is Not Your Birthday" Challenge?
Each Year at Asbury Church, we challenge each family to give as much to help build God's Kingdom on Earth to support students and end hunger as we do on gifts for our family.
