In-Person Worship Gatherings Remain Paused

Church Council is announcing an extension to the suspension of in-person worship services based upon the elevated level of cases of COVID-19 in Lehigh County. The decision included consultation with leadership at Lehigh Valley Health Network. Church Council will continue to evaluate this decision on a two-week basis.

Maybe you grew up in a church where it was frowned upon to ask questions? You were basically told what to believe. And like many Christians, maybe you still have some questions that you are just afraid to ask. In this series, we will explore some questions that Christians just don't feel comfortable asking. Maybe you are just asking for a friend.

Join us this Sunday as Pastor Eric kicks off the "Asking for a Friend" sermon series with the message/question "Do My Prayers Really Matter?" 
Worship is streaming at 10:30 AM at live.asburylv.org.
Resources for Worship
