We invite you to join us as we seek to further our discipleship together. Through small groups, Sunday School classes, and seasonal classes, speakers, and church-wide events, we seek to build a community full of life which is engaged to practice what we preach.
During COVID-19, many of our groups and classes have been meeting on Zoom. See below for a complete list - we hope that you find one that interests you! If you have any questions about a group, or would like to find the best fit for you, please contact our Directors of Connectional Ministries, Julie Woodman and Michelle Funk, at .
Adult Sunday School Schedule
Contact the group leaders listed under each class description if you would like to pop in on a class
via Zoom. They will be happy to get you connected!
A class for anyone who is interested in learning more about becoming a member of Asbury.
A diverse group of individuals looking for ways to connect with one another, our church, our community and our world.
Our class focus will vary between different subjects: Faith Links, book reviews, field trips, and service projects. That makes it easy for you to come and attend classes that interest you while not feeling committed to attend full-time, although we hope you will enjoy the fellowship of the class so much that you want to come weekly!
Rev. Gayla Rapp leads this group. Contact her at if you are interested in this class or have any questions!
An older adult class that studies a variety of topics and enjoys various guest speakers.
An inter-generational class that focuses on discussions centered around the Bible.
Pathways to Joy
A group of welcoming adults that focuses on mission work and fostering discussion about current events.
Throughout the year, we offer topical classes, special speakers, and book studies during the Sunday School hour, as well as evenings and during the week, to accommodate a wider variety of schedules.

ZOOM SERIES ON RACISM
