THE MESSAGES

In our contemporary service, The Bridge, at 11:00 a.m. in Williams Chapel, Rev. Robert Mercer will help us with the hard part about Advent...the waiting. We're excited. We're ready for Christ! But with the Bible and God's people as our guide, we'll learn how to trust God's promises and look for redemption in our time of waiting.

How can this be? What will this child become? How long do I have to wait? The Nativity story in the New Testament Gospel accounts contain six key inquiries that unlock the true reason for the season. Throughout Advent, Rev. Dr. Kip Laxson will answer these questions in Traditions at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. in Asbury's sanctuary.

THE MUSIC

On Sunday, Dec. 15 at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m., Asbury's Chancel Choirs and Orchestra will present a medley of traditional Christmas classics during morning worship. Don't miss this seasonal celebration of music worshipping Christ our King!

THE GOOD WILL AMONG MEN

Through Angel Tree, Asbury supports 90 children and 35 families for whom Christmas does not come. Each child receives six gifts which are available for adoption on the tree outside our Mission Wall (located between the Sanctuary and Williams Chapel). Food gift certificates (which can also be fulfilled at the mission wall) support the families.

All our angels have been adopted and the families will soon receive their goodies. Thank you for your generosity!

Rise Against Hunger is on a mission to end hunger by providing food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable. On Sunday, December 15 at 5:30 p.m., Asbury is partnering with RAH and packaging 30,024 shelf stable meals that will be sent to hungry men, women and children around the globe. Volunteers of all ages and stages can participate and make an impact.
