The motto of Asbury UMC is “Knowing Christ, Growing in Christ, Serving Christ, Sharing Christ.” The church offers a variety of opportunities for you to live out this motto beginning with Worship each Sunday at 10:00 AM. We encourage you to be fully involved in Worship through song and God’s Word.
There are a number of small groups that meet each month that also help you live out our motto. A brief description of these groups are listed below. Now is the time to join one or more of these groups! If you have any questions or would like more information, please call the church office.
Pastor’s Bible Study, Wednesdays at 6:45 p.m.
Following the Wednesday Night dinner in Farr Hall, Pastor Chris leads an informal study of God’s word relating to everyday life, to the church, society, and current issues. The format is a combination of lecture, questions, answers and open discussion. Brunch Bunch Bible Study, Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. This group meets weekly in the Rutherford Room for a time of fellowship and Bible study.
Krafty Kritters, Thursdays at 6:00 p.m.
This group of women gather each week in the Youth Room for prayer, fellowship, and crafts. From shawls and lap throws for Hospice patients to hats and scarves for the homeless, their goal is to help those in need. They also teach new craft techniques and skills.
Hope Circle, Each Second Monday at 10:00 a.m.
This ladies group meets in the Hope Circle Room for a time of sharing, fellowship, ministry, and craft making. Each Monday a group member takes flowers left from Sunday Worship and delivers them to either someone in the hospital or one of our homebound members. They make lap robes for nursing home patients as well as other crafts. Hope Circle holds a craft sale twice a year to raise money for church mission projects, Vacation Bible School, and to provide monthly support to the Clay County Clothes Closet.
