Getting Involved & Group Activities

You’ll Feel Welcome at the ‘Friendly Church’

There’s something for everyone! Our programs and activities provide opportunities for individuals to feel a sense of family while developing their personal awareness of God’s guidance in their lives. At Asbury, it’s easy to make friends and build faith-based relationships. We want everyone in Jefferson County to have a chance to experience a circle of friends where their own lives can be embraced while experiencing joy and growing in faith.

For more group opportunities, please be sure to check out Children/Youth and Musical Ministries.

Fellowship Time – Coffee Hour

We invite you to stay for Coffee Hour (Fellowship Time), which is provided in the Rotunda – right behind the Sanctuary. Please enjoy coffee, goodies, conversation, and something cold to drink. 

Join us for a welcoming and joyous Coffee Hour/Fellowship Time right after the Main 10:15 A.M. service. All ages join together for conversation and friendship.

Want to get involved? You are invited to sign up to bring goodies or help with clean-up. Check out information about Missions, Sunday School, and Event Planning, who are often looking for help or donations with community projects and upcoming church activities.
