Well-supervised child care is provided for children two-years-old and younger during the 9:30 a.m. worship service. Sunday school classes exist for children two-years-old and older at the same time. The Cribbery and Sunday school rooms are in the Sunday school wing, downstairs from the Fellowship Hall.  If your child needs you while you are upstairs, your identification number will appear on the black screen behind the praise band.


The Intentional Faith Team encourages everyone to consider reading one Bible reading each day Monday – Friday taken from the Revised Common Lectionary.  Often they form the basis for preaching, teaching, and worship on Sunday Morning.

Amos 7:7-17, Psalm 82,Col 6:7-16

Luke 10:1-11, 16-20

2nd Sunday Mission – The Missions Committee has chosen UMCOR (The United Methodist Committee on Relief) as the recipient of the July 2nd Sunday Offering. For many of us the mention of UMCOR brings Disaster Response and Recovery to mind.  While this is probably the best known of UMCOR’s areas of emphasis there are 7 others:  Migration, Hunger & Poverty, Sustainable Development, Water & Sanitation, Creation Care, Global Health, and Women & Children. 

The money from this offering will help support UMCOR’s administrative and salary expenses so that every dollar given to an UMCOR Advance goes directly to that specific Advance Mission or Ministry!


Would you consider naming Asbury in your will?
