For Good

April 23 - May 28, 2017
The Church is often accused of being an anti-organization. People know what we are against even more than they know what we are for. In this series, we are exploring six areas where we can affirm we are unmistakably “For Good.”

Remarkable

March 5 - April 16, 2017
We often talk about Jesus, but spend less time actually studying Him, observing how He lived, what He said and considering how we are called to obey Him and walk with Him in daily relationship. Beginning with Ash Wednesday and leading to the celebration of Easter, we will look at the remarkable person of Jesus as recorded in Mark’s Gospel. 

Helping Others Follow Jesus

February 5 - March 4, 2017
In the month of February, Pastor Tom is sharing his great passion for our church to be intent on "helping others follow Jesus." It's more than a slogan or vision statement-- it represents the purpose of every person who follows Jesus and for our church together. 

You Are Loved

January 1 - February 4, 2017
Pastor Tom wanted to start out the year emphasizing LOVE— God’s love for us and our invitation to love others. The call to love God and love others is something we never graduate from. At a time when many of us are thinking about self-improvement, we are sharing the good news that regardless of how well we fulfill (or fail to fulfill) our New Year’s Resolutions, we are loved. 

In God We Tru$t

October 31 - November 20, 2016
This November, we’ll hear about what God has done, and focus on why we should all invest generously in His Kingdom through our time, prayers, talents and finances. Not only can we be a blessing to others, being godly stewards causes us to be blessed tremendously as well.

Ask

September 26 - October 30, 2016
When it came to prayer, Jesus told His disciples to “Ask and it will be given to you; Seek and you will find; Knock and the door will be opened to you.” This series will guide you through some of the different kinds of prayers in Scripture: prayer of examination, prayer of surrender, prayer of adoration, prayer of supplication, and prayer of intercession.

 

Outsiders

August 3 - September 25, 2016
Inspired by 1 Peter 1:1 (…“to God’s elect, strangers in the world…”), Outsiders examines what it means to be a Christian in today’s society, and in that context, how to remain true to our beliefs and our God.

What to Do When You Don't Know What to Do

July 29 - August 2, 2016
In this five-week study from the book of Proverbs, King Solomon offers mic-dropping wisdom 140 characters at a time. Solomon’s words are so simple that people often overlook them—but making complex ideas simple was his inspired genius. Proverbs gives us Solomon’s brilliant road map for life—principled wisdom that helps us know what to do when we don’t know what to do.

Mixtape

June 1 - June 28, 2016
Mixtapes originated in the ‘60s and became popular in the ‘80s especially among youth who created them as gifts for others, with songs carefully selected to convey a message. Today, people of all ages make compilations or playlists to suit every occasion, such as driving, working out, studying and celebrating, or to voice a mood. Yet, this is not a modern practice. The greatest mixtape of all time is tucked inside our Bible, King David’s mixtape and Israel’s hymn book—the book of Psalms. David felt and understood the breadth and depth of all human feelings in all situations and was able to create a collection of songs that speak to a person’s various emotions, and give them expression. Because David’s mixtape captures every aspect of our life with God, it is a gift to all people for all time. David’s mixtape translates into a mixtape for everyone.

Good Work

April 27 - May 31, 2016
We are God’s handiwork, created to do good works. While many consider work to be a four-letter word and a necessary evil, work is both an expression of God’s image in us and His gift to us.

Room For Doubt

March 30 - April 26, 2016
It’s okay to question... During this series we’ll learn to think like a Hebrew. Embrace controversy. What’s the bottom line? The myth of certainty— what can we really prove? The Bible was written with a Hebrew mindset. Also people mix up faith and feelings. God doesn’t prove He exists to us but He leaves clues for those who wish to seek Him. Faith takes effort.

Following Jesus

February 10, 2016 - April 26, 2016
Following Jesus is both inviting and challenging. We are invited into relationship but challenged in significant ways. These two dynamics working together create an environment for people to grow in their life with God. Following Jesus is an intentional pursuit that takes time, effort and commitment, but it results in the fullest kind of life.

A Compelling Life

December 30, 2015 - February 9, 2016
A compelling life is enthralling and captivating—it evokes attention in a powerfully irresistible way. We will be looking at the most compelling figure in the history of the world—Jesus Christ. We’ll discover how His identity and mission affects our identity and mission because it is His love that defines us and compels us to fulfill our purpose.

God with Us

November 25 - December 29, 2015
An Advent study closes 2015 by looking at some of God’s names found in the Bible. No single word picture, title or name can capture all His attributes. Only by piecing them together can we begin to understand God, how much He loves us and how far He is willing to go—to be “God with Us.” We think you’ll like this one!

Get to Give

October 21 - November 24, 2015
In our "Get to Give" series, we'll study five parables Jesus used to explain the character of God and the expectations God has of His people. Jesus' parables were not straightforward or simple, but they engaged the listener and called His original audience to action. Will we see it as an honor that we "get to give" through, with and for Him and take the action He has taught and modeled? Or will we choose to do things our own way?

The Three-Mile-Per-Hour God

October 14 - 20, 2015
Christianity, when it is true to itself, proclaims the power, healing and transformation found in Jesus Christ. The moment any Christian movement loses its focus on the person of Jesus Christ, it ceases to be fully, wholly Christian. It is the person of Jesus Christ who makes us the people of God. Mark 5:21–43 helps us see this point by showing us precisely who Jesus is.

Just a Day?

September 9 - October 13, 2015
Just a Day? Asbury always shines on the annual Day of Service. Hundreds of people, families and friends of every age pour their hearts into serving the Tulsa community. But why limit ourselves? Serving doesn’t have to be just a day—it can be a way of life. As followers of Jesus, every day is our chance to shine!

Wrestling with God

August 5 - September 8, 2015
”Wrestling with God” will push us to think more deeply about God and His kingdom. We’ll be examining five paradoxes from Scripture—paradoxes that reveal just how complex and transcendent our mysterious God is. A paradox is a statement or concept that seems contradictory but is actually true. Let’s grab hold of our mysterious God, let’s wrestle with His seemingly contradictory statements—and let’s not let go until He blesses us.

Hidden

July 8 - August 4, 2015
God’s desire that we be freed from the power of shame and condemnation is found throughout the Bible. This series will explore stories of real people wrestling with real failures (some of them epic) along with real shame and condemnation. We will see how God responds to these people and how God responds to us when we wrestle with our own failures and shame. - Pastor Todd Craig

In God We Trust

July 1-7, 2015
We carry in our pockets, our purses our wallets a constant reminder: The Almighty is the source of all our hope, and in Him we place our trust. Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.

Ekklesia

May 20 - June 30, 2015
Faithful living as members of Christ's holy church is edgy, unpredictable, adventuresome and scary. It requires us to repeat a measure of Abraham's faith who "went out without knowing where he was going" (Hebrew 11:8). We are wise to lean back on the experience of those who came before us, while kicking forward into the future that Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of our faith, has for us. 

Walk the Talk

April 8 - May 19, 2015
During His “Sermon on the Mount,” Jesus demonstrates the fulfillment of the law and the righteousness of God’s kingdom by contrasting six Old Testament laws with His own teachings. These teachings help us understand what it means to be perfect, to fulfill the law, and to live a righteous life that exceeds the scribes and Pharisees—a life of allegiance to God as citizens of His kingdom. Most Christians can talk the talk, but as disciples we have to learn to walk the talk.
