Special Thanks:

Every Sunday at Asbury, there are people who work behind the scenes to help make the day so meaningful and wonderful for all of us and for our visitors. We thank those unsung heroes of faith—our hospitality team, ushers, greeters, connectors, nursery workers, and children's church teachers.


With special announcements of the Youth Group's Pancake Supper and a visit from Jesse Cole of the Savannah Bananas, author of the book Find Your Yellow Tux, both of which occur February 13th, Shrove Tuesday.
Announcer: Chris Fahey
Mr. Banana: Ray Ellis
