None of us should face the trials and tribulations of life alone and no matter our age, we never stop learning. Fortunately, we have many opportunities for fellowship and growth at Asbury First. While worship is the centerpiece of our life together, we experience life together in many other ways as well. Whether you volunteer in one of our outreach ministries, take advantage of an educational opportunity, or just finding your way into one of the many fellowship groups, we hope that you find a place to connect at Asbury First and we are here to help!

Please check the events calendar for the most updated list of fellowship and educational opportunities at Asbury First. Below, please find a list of our regular educational and fellowship opportunities:
