    02.15.22 | Weekly Newsletter | by Tom Harrison

    By now you have heard the news. Our Staff Parish Relations Committee, Transition Team and Bishop Jimmy Nunn have selected my successor. I felt relief when Reverend Andrew Forrest accepted the call to become Asbury’s third senior pastor in 58...

      Stories from the Farm
      02.02.22 | Women | by Tammy Beals

      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...

                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...
