Worship at Asbury First

Sunday mornings at Asbury First are rich with worship opportunities. From September thru June there are two traditional services and a more intimate communion service. Throughout the year there are seasonal and other special services.

Our Taizé service Wednesday evenings, 6:00 – 6:45pm, during the winter season, offers a mid-week Sabbath moment. Enjoy the peace of a candlelit sanctuary, the beauty of simple songs and the depth of quiet prayer. A simple service for all ages and one which can refocus our hearts and minds in the midst of a busy and noisy world.

In 2000 we began making the text of our sermons available on our website. In 2003 we began recording them for your listening pleasure. So now, you can read or listen to sermons. Maybe you missed a Sunday or a sermon was inspiring and you wish to re-visit. If you are a visitor, here is an opportunity meet the ministers through their words.

When you can’t be here, you may listen to our Live Radio Broadcast every Sunday at 11:00am on WYSL 1040 AM.

We cordially invite you to join us in worship.

Below are the service schedules for fall thru spring, Christmas, Easter, and Taize worship. Those for which we have not determined the schedule for the year ahead are of the previous year.
