    Stories from the Farm

    Growing up on a farm in rural Missouri gave me a unique perspective on life. I see things a bit differently than the average girl who grew up in town.

      The Month of Love
      02.02.22 | Devotional Thoughts | by Rachel Davis

      February. The month of love. When some of you read the above you got excited, some of you rolled your eyes, some of you might have gotten all dreamy and thought to start planning something romantic, some of you don’t have time to get all...

        David On Mount Zion
        02.01.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

        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.

          David In The Valley Of Elah
          01.25.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

          In these weekly notes, we try to focus on what’s coming, rather than what’s happened, but today let’s make an exception. On Saturday we had an excellent presentation at our Lay Leadership meeting. We shared some 2021 statistics (missional...

            Moses on Mount Nebo
            01.18.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

            By now you should’ve received word about my July 31 retirement date and the process of selecting our next senior pastor. This is new—we’ve only had one new pastor appointed to Asbury since 1964 (me in 1993).  Fifty-eight years of two senior...

              Reasons for Your Resolution
              01.13.22 | Women | by Tammy Beals

              January is always a time of renewal.  We celebrate renewed goals, hopes, dreams and commitments! All of these can be a great place to start but we need to have some resolve to back them up.  Have you ever looked up the definition of resolution? ...

                01.13.22 | Women | Devotional Thoughts | by Abigail Wendt

                We have all heard the phrase “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” and we all know how wrong that is. Words are powerful. The Scripture is full of evidence of the power of words. From the start God uses His words to...

                  Moses On Mount Sinai
                  01.11.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                  We're sending a letter this week about my retirement. Being that I’ve missed the last three Sundays from the pulpit, that has not already happened. Dana and I both had the Omicron variant and had to isolate. My issues became a sinus infection...

                    Moses On Mount Horeb
                    01.04.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                    The Old Testament revolves around three major characters: Abraham, Moses, and David. Our sermon series, “Mountains, Valleys, and Caves,” shows how the geographical sites had spiritual applications to them, and it does to us as...

                      Abram On Mount Moriah
                      12.28.21 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

                      “Mountains, Valleys, and Caves” is our sermon series for the first four months of 2022. A mountaintop experience is a peak or pinnacle of life. We love these times. A “valley” is a time of struggle and often, growth. A “cave” is a dark place of...
