Our Missional Faith

Serve with us! 

We are excited to be a part of God's ministry in service to each other.  Our desire to become disciples of Christ leads us to an active faith of missional work within our church, neighborhood, and community.  Wherever you are inspired to serve, we invite you to join us as we practice what we preach! 

Interested in a Mission Trip?...We have scholarships!

Asbury has established a Mission Trip Scholarship Fund through the pledges received from our Capital Campaign.  We encourage applications from anyone interested in a UMC sponsored mission trip!

Mission Partners

We support mission partners in our local and global communities.  Some partners include:

Interfaith Hospitality Network

Interfaith Hospitality Network helps to accommodate families in need of housing and food assistance in Johnson County.  They do this through host partners like Asbury who open their doors and provide home-cooked meals for one week, four times a year.  We are proud to be a part of this ministry every quarter when we open our third floor to families experiencing homelessness to provide a safe, comfortable space where they can rest.

Santa Fe Trail Elementary

Asbury has been a long-time partner with our local grade school, Santa Fe Trails Elementary.  We enjoy supporting their education through funding supply drives, hosting student achievement parties each semester, running a Harvesters BackSnack program throughout the year, and holding a private food drive during summer break.

Cross-Lines Community Outreach

Cross-Lines Community Outreach works to provide support and services to individuals affected by poverty.  Their work has expanded to include a full range of services including laundry, showers, clean clothing, rent and utility assistance, as well as a community garden and kitchen serving breakfast and lunch each day.  The Asbury Mission Team collects clothing donations and serves lunch once a month.

Lazarus Table

Lazarus Table has historically served over 20,000 meals annually by providing three hot meals each weekend to the homeless and hungry in downtown Kansas City.  In 2017, Lazarus Ministries moved to Linwood United to serve a different, but no less needy population.  A commercial kitchen operates weekly to prepare meals and volunteers assist in preparing, serving, and cleaning up each week.

United Methodist Committee on Relief provides global and national response in the following areas:  humanitarian relief, sustainable development, and global health.  Asbury is a financial sponsor through UMCOR offerings and also sends volunteers to provide relief response.

Days for Girls

Days for Girls aims to empower women through providing sustainable, reusable feminine hygiene products.  In many areas of our national and global communities, women are excluded from the educational system and the workforce when they are menstruating.  Asbury has joined in making sustainable menstruation kits in an effort to support the independence, confidence, and safety of young women everywhere.

Asbury Days of Caring

Our congregation holds two dedicated Days of Caring each year in the Fall and Spring.  These days help us to build community and serve our neighbors.  Past events have included lawn care for our Asbury seniors, tree planting, volunteering for local animal shelters, and packaging 10,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger.

Our next Day of Caring will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019.  Click on this link for more information and to sign up to volunteer:  DAY OF CARING LINK
