Bulletin for the Service


The flowers for Sunday's worship service are given in memory of Janice Gantt by her family. Flowers are also given in memory of Lillian Lindsay by her family.

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.
