    We had another wonderful trip to Israel with 33 young adults. One place we visit is the traditional site where Peter denied Jesus: St. Peter in Gallicantu. It also could be the palace of the High Priest, Caiaphas, where they took Jesus for...

      The Squirrel Hunter
      02.23.22 | Women | by Tammy Beals

      Have you ever been speaking, listening, or thinking about something and BOOM….you forgot what you were talking about, thinking about or what that person across from you just said?  The popular word to describe that is simply “Squirrel!” I would...

        Praise God in the Storm
        02.23.22 | Women | Devotional Thoughts | by Amy Miller

        Spring in Oklahoma is known for one thing. STORMS! I love the science behind severe weather. Storm chasing is on my bucket list of things I would like to do someday. When there is a tornado warning issued, I go outside and lookup. I will watch...

            02.02.22 | Women | by Tammy Beals

                February 4 marks Asbury’s 60th anniversary (our diamond jubilee). We will combine our “official celebration” with a fun church tradition related to Lent. Pancake Day (aka Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras) is the day before Ash Wednesday.
