Asbury Adults




There’s a place for you in Asbury’s Adult Ministry! Our studies involve the ingredients of fellowship, nurture, Bible study, and mission. Through these ingredients, we hope to build lay people who are empowered to make a difference in B’ham and the world beyond.

Summer Institute of Religious Studies

Rev. Dr. Kip Laxson has begun his seminary-level course on the Apostle Paul, who singlehandedly wrote much of the New Testament and converted millions of people to Christianity. The class is held every Wednesday night from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. in the gym through August 21. If you missed a session, listen to the podcasts and then join us when you can. Seats are available.

You may pick up a copy of Paul: A Biography by N.T. Wright, which is suggested reading for the class, in print, audio and eReader versions on
