There's no better time to get to know Asbury than on Sunday morning. Between worship at 8:30 a.m. and 11:00 a.m., Asbury offers learning and fellowship opportunities for its adults, youth and children from 9:45 - 10:45 a.m.
Whether you're seeking fellowship and community with friends or you're interested in learning how to understand God's word, there is a place for you in our Adult Ministry!
Sunday School - 9:45 a.M.
Asbury has 15 adult Sunday School classes and each one is centered around Biblical study, fellowship, and service. If you are not part of a class, we encourage you to visit several classes as each one is unique.
For anyone who dismisses Lent as a seemingly endless time of self-sacrifice and introspection, this 4-week study for Lent offers a breath of fresh air. It connects prayer and other inner spiritual practices with outward actions of mercy and compassion.
Join Pastor Greg Foust for A World Worth Saving: Lenten Spiritual Practices for Action by George Donigian. This four-week class begins Sunday, March 3 at 9:45 a.m. in the conference room near Williams Chapel.
A Disciple’s Path
Join Rev. Greg Foust, Minister of Discipleship, for a seven-part series designed to help you take the next step in following Jesus Christ. A Disciple’s Path will examine frequently asked questions about what United Methodists believe and how United Methodists are unique in how they live out their Christian faith. If you are interested in becoming a member of Asbury UMC, this is a required class.
A Disciple’s Path begins on Sunday, April 28 during the Sunday School hour, 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. Questions? Email Pastor Greg.
