The book of Judges covers a period of hundreds of years that ultimately ends with everyone in Israel doing what is right in their own eyes. Israel chose to only partially obey God, which led to a repeated cycle of sin, oppression, crying out to God for help, God's deliverance of His people through a Judge, short-term peace, complacency, and sin yet again. Over and over this cycle occurred in the land.

Yet throughout this chaotic time period, God raised up the unlikely Judges - the broken, the injured, old, young, men and women - to ultimately rescue His people. Even in darkness, He worked through them to accomplish His will, and continues to use the unlikely today. 

Join us as we wrap up a 4-week sermon series, The Judges, this Sunday with the message "Gideon."

Resources for Worship
Children's Bulletins: Ages 3+ | Ages 7+

As we take another trip "to the movies" during our July sermon series, we'll be offering indoor worship only to allow for viewing of video clips as part of the messages. There will be no outdoor worship offered during July. The 10:30 AM service will continue to be streamed at live.asburylv.org. Due to copyright restrictions, the movie clips will not be part of streaming worship, but a description of the scene will be provided.
AIM Medical Supplies Packing
Volunteers are needed this Saturday, June 26, to help load a truck with 100-200 boxes of medical supplies, wheelchairs, walkers and more for our friends at Healthy Women, Healthy Liberia. The packing will take place at Through These Hands' location in Lehighton, PA (about a half-hour drive from Asbury) at 10:00 AM. If you can help, please contact Dick McCreight for details (or respond to this email and we'll get you connected). Thank you for your continuing support of this life-changing mission.
