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 the world in which they live. Each of the worlds might be different but the core of each world should be centered in Christ.

History and Heritage.jpg


Methodist History & Heritage

Who was John Wesley and what did he believe? Who was Francis Asbury and why was our church named after him? When did the Methodist Church become "United" and what does that really mean?

This fall, join Rev. Dr. Kip Laxson for Methodist History & Heritage, a class designed for anyone seeking membership at Asbury or is just interested in knowing more about Methodist history.

This five-week class begins September 26 at 6:30 p.m. Childcare is available.

Life Groups

Wish you had a place where you could talk about your week—your struggles, victories, and realties? Starting Sunday, August 19, three new life groups—classes that focus on relationships instead of Bible study or doctrinal teaching—will begin for married moms, single moms, and dads.


Dads Life Group

Pater familias. Also known as: dad. You're the provider, protector, supporter, teacher, and friend. You wear a lot of hats and have a lot on your mind at all times. When do you relax? When do you take time to fellowship with other dads? When do you come to God in prayer? Refresh and recharge with fellow dads while your kids are worshiping and learning about God upstairs--safely cared for!

Single Moms Life Group

Work. School. Sports. Practices. Homework. Dinner. The work and extracurricular activities never seem to stop. As a single mom, you barely have time to think--let alone deepen your relationship with God.

For 90 minutes on Sunday evening (while your children are deepening their own spiritual development), enjoy fellowship with other single moms and reflect on ways you can see God through the chaos.

Married Moms Life Group

You're the glue that holds the family together. Hard worker by day and homework helper by night. Pepper in being a supportive partner, house cleaner and calendar keeper, and you've only scratched the surface of your daily reality. 

Spend time with fellow moms who understand your daily challenges and take time to grow your relationship with God at the same time.
