What does the phrase “Home for Christmas” mean to you? As we prepare for the upcoming holiday season, many of us will be making plans to get back home or to receive those who are coming home. In our journey of faith, Jesus calls us to find our way home and to ready ourselves to come home for Christmas. This involves responding to God’s love by sharing it with others. Come and see what we can do to find our way in this season and beyond.
Families are involved in all 5 of our services but the 4pm is created by our Kids Ministry staff with kids and families in mind.
Nothing says "Christmas Eve" like communion, Silent Night, and Candlelight - you'll find these and other traditions in every service here on Christmas Eve!
You've got a seat at Asbury Church on Christmas Eve! We ask that, if possible, you RSVP to the service you plan to attend by clicking the button below. We do have limited seating for our 4 indoor services - Be sure to save your space on Eventbrite! Need help? Call or text us at 984-206-6993 and we will be happy to help!
Asbury Church is following the Raleigh area mask mandate and requires that everyone who is indoors to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth at all times while in the facility. Thank you for helping Asbury Church to continue to worship in the days and weeks ahead.
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. Note that the main entrances to our buildings are from the center of campus.
Is there something for my kids?
Kids are welcomed at any and all of our Christmas Eve Services - but our 4pm worship is led by our amazing Kids Ministry Staff and is designed with families in mind!
What is a typical worship service like?
Every service features music, prayer, a sermon, communion, and candlelight. Outdoor worship is led by our Worship leader on guitar, Contemporary Worship has a full worship band, and traditional worship features piano, choir, and liturgy. Most services last around 60 minutes.
What should I wear?
Whatever you are comfortable in! All of 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!
Are you taking COVID precautions?
We have various safety measures in place while we gather for worship in this season. We observe social distancing measures and follow local mask mandates. 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.
Each year, we challenge families to be generous. The total spent on gifts under the tree? What if every family also gave that same amount to the cause of partnering with students and ending hunger locally and globally? We've done it since 2012 and have regularly raised above our goal. Join us this year in the cause!
3. Attend a Fun Event
This Season at Asbury has several opportunites for fellowship! Join in our 2nd Annual Cookies and Cocoa Event on Friday December 3rd at 5pm or the Alpha Christmas Potluck on December 6th at 6pm. These are great opportunities to meet new friends and celebrate the season.
4. Take a Next Step for 2022
Life is Better in a Group - Asbury is all about helping people to engage in relationships where Christ transforms. This January, there are two great ways to do this: Alpha Course and LifeGroups.
