Worship Information

Christmas is a time to gather with family and friends. We invite you to be a part of our family, no matter your background, as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. Please join us at one of our Christmas Eve services. Together we’ll experience beautiful music, carols by candlelight, and a Christmas message that reminds us of that night thousands of years ago that continues to transform our world and our lives today.

The Message

When God is silent, we’re tempted to think he’s absent. That’s why the Christmas story is so important. You can’t separate the “Silent Night” of Christmas from the 400 years of silent nights between the Old and New Testaments. Christmas gives us a real, tangible, and historical hope. It reminds us that even when God is silent, He isn’t absent.

Christmas Eve Offering

For the past 6 years, Asbury Church has faithfully donated a portion of our Christmas Eve offering to support a ministry project of one of our Asbury in Mission (AIM) partners. This year, the committee has selected Youth PEACE Ministries; a ministry of the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference of the United Methodist Church’s Board of Camping and Retreat Ministry. This ministry works to provide affordable camping experiences for low-income youth in grades 6 through 12. The camps include: Gretna Glen, Pocono Plateau, and Camp Innabah. Scholarships are based on income guidelines. Your generous offering this Christmas Eve will give much needed funding to help support this mission. Click here to learn more about Youth PEACE Ministries and be sure to check back soon for a video with more information about this wonderful ministry.
