From the Pastor’s Pen

Let me invite you to come and visit Asbury United Methodist Church. You may want to drive by during the week and see the historic building which is in a beautiful setting. While you are visiting in this beautiful place, it is hard to realize that it is in the middle of the Forks of the River Industrial Park. Everyone is invited to bring their children to play on the playground in front of the church.

However, to really get the feel for Asbury, you need to come on Sunday morning and be greeted by the warm and friendly people who make up the Asbury family. This church is unique in many ways. One way is that the worship service is at 9:30 followed by Sunday School. The church has a great music program with an outstanding choir under the leadership of our Music Minister, Clay Oglesby.

I hope you will look at the history section of our website.  There you will find a poem written in 1947 by a former pastor, Prince Eades, entitled “Church of My Dreams”.  After reading the poem and visiting with us, you may find that Asbury is the church of your dreams.
