Important Update! New Location at the Foster Seventh-day Adventist Church


As many of you know, we've been meeting in house churches this summer due to our previous location being no longer available.  House churches have been great thus far, but today we're excited to announce that for the month of July we will be meeting together again as a whole at the Foster Seventh-day Aventist Church in Asheville, North Carolina. The church campus has several buildings, so please look for signs.  We'll also have ushers out front to direct you to the correct building.

This will be a one month trial period to see if this new location will work for us as we continue to seek out God's will for our ministry in the Asheville area.  Service will start at 10AM.  See you this Sunday!

Worship Service @ 10AM

Special Missions Contribution

Update: We want to say thanks to all who participated in our Special Missions contribution.  With just a mustard seed of faith, we raised over $10,000 for our missions fund.  All the glory goes to God!

Our missions fund is an on-going project and you can make a donation at any time.  Just make sure to make your checks out to "The Asheville Church" and denote that it is specifically going toward "missions" on the memo line.  If you are giving cash, place it in an envelope and write down the appropriate information.

The Asheville Church is excited to announce our first ever special missions contribution on April 24th.

Why are we doing this?
For the past few months, the Asheville Church has been studying out some of the core disciplines of Christianity.  Consideration for the poor is core to who Jesus is.  To be disciples of Jesus, means to participate in the discipline of giving.

Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys.  For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Luke 12:32-34

Where is the money going?
First of all, we plan on using the money to serve our local community right here in Buncombe County.  This investment into our community will serve the needy and also help us bring the gospel to the hurting.  We are investing in treasures that will never wither away.

Secondly, we plan on using the money to serve the greater kingdom of God.  We'll be working with HOPE Worldwide to financially support some of the amazing services they are providing to the international community.  HOPE is a world reknowned international charity that serves over 1.5 million people annually by providing health care, financial assistance, and educational programs.  Learn more about HOPE at www.hopeww.org.

When is it happening?
The special missions collection will happen on April 24th during our outdoor worship service at Charles D. Owen Park in Swannanoa. For the entire month of April, we want you to be thinking and planning for that date.  We will collect all donations on that day during our outdoor worship service.

Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.  -Luke 6:38.

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.  -2 Corinthians 9:7

Our hope with this special missions contribution is that it teaches men and women of God to live sacrificial lives and by doing so, we'll also serve the greater needs of our brothers and sisters in our community.
