January / February Events at Asbury UMC

‘Living the Five’ Bible Study – Beginning Tuesday; January 31, 2017 @ 7 PM

Asbury United Methodist Church in Charles Town West Virginia invites our entire community to join us for a dynamic new Bible study titled “Living the Five.”  This study focuses on the five key principles that will give you the life you long for and the relationships God wants for you.  The study is based around two key scriptures given to us directly from Jesus.  First, The Great Commandment - Love God with all your heart, your entire mind, and all your being - and love your neighbor as yourself. And second, The Great Commission - Go into all the world and make disciples.  This study will be presented in two four-week sessions.  Part one begins on Tuesday; Jan. 31 at 7 PM.  Asbury UMC is located at 110 West North Street in Charles Town WV and our facilities are handicapped accessible.  Please call 304-725-5513 or visit http://www.myasburychurch.org for more information.

Asbury UMC – Soup-er Bowl Sunday

Please support Asbury’s Sunday School & Youth Group on Sunday; February 5th as they mobilize to fight hunger in our community by collecting monetary donations & non-perishable foods for Jefferson County Community Ministries. “Soup-er Bowl Sunday” began in 1990 as a way for youth to help those in need and 100% of what they raise stays in the local community. Please support this worthy cause through your donations and also by praying this “Soup-er Bowl” prayer before the big game begins: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those who may be without a bowl of soup to eat. Amen”.  Asbury UMC is located at 110 West North Street in Charles Town WV and our facilities are handicapped accessible.  Please call 304-725-5513 or visit http://www.myasburychurch.org for more information.

Asbury UMC - Yarn Ministry

Are you looking for a ministry of prayer and caring for others? You might consider a unique way to serve as the “hands” of Christ through crocheting or knitting—-and there is opportunity to support this ministry without knowing how to crochet or knit. Prayer is the focus—-and our mission is to create handmade gifts of comfort, hope and peace that demonstrate God’s love. Praying for a stranger helps us to learn to trust the truth that God works through us when we care for friends and strangers alike.  Join us as we kick off the 2017 Yarning Season at Asbury on Tuesday; January 24th at 7 PM and learn more about this exciting ministry. Asbury UMC is located at 110 West North Street in Charles Town WV and our facilities are handicapped accessible.  Please call 304-725-5513 or visit http://www.myasburychurch.org for more information.
