Thank goodness that we are moving toward everyone’s full involvement in music! We are singing in worship and will restart our ensembles beginning in July. In the meantime, we are looking at the pandemic as a chance to revamp our ensembles where helpful, particularly with children and youth.
The Asbury Choir will resume rehearsals on July 14 at 6:30 p.m. in the sanctuary and sing for worship on July 18.
We will announce plans for handbells, youth, and children as we complete them.
Thanks for checking on us. Come back and see what we’re planning!

music ministries

Asbury’s Music Ministry exists to lead God’s people in praise. God calls us to proclaim the message of God’s redeeming love through music. If you enjoy music, we'd love to have you join us! People remember what they sing so we are careful to immerse ourselves both musically and spiritually in the great Wesleyan theological tradition. The congregation is Asbury’s biggest choir so you’re part of the Music Ministry even if you’re not in an ensemble! If you would enjoy being in an organized ensemble, there's a place for you if you’re four-years old and older. We'd love to have you be a part of our ministry! See the below for more information on these ministries.
