While worship is central to Asbury, it is only part of the “disciple making” experience of following Christ. Sunday School enhances the worship experience by providing opportunities to learn more about the Bible, discuss current issues, develop close personal friendships, grow in faith, and how to apply the Christian faith in real life situations.
We have 12 adult classes. More information about Sunday School is located at the Information Station outside the Sanctuary. Come and connect to the life-giving power for living!
