Welcome to Asbury

No Matter Where You Are on Life’s Journey, You Are Welcome Here!

We are an open, progressive church that you and your family can call home.  Our worship services are rich with joy and variety, inspirational preaching and teaching, children’s messages, and music that will make your spirit soar.  We seek to build disciples of Jesus Christ by using his teachings of unconditional love that heals, unites, and makes a positive difference in the world!

Worship/Sunday Schedule:

Currently only the 10:15 Sunday Service is being offered due to COVID-19 NY State and Upper NY Methodist Conference rules. 

On the first Sunday of each month Holy Communion is typically celebrated.

For the time being and due to COVID-19, our nursery care for infants and toddlers is temporarily not available.  Normally, Nursery Care runs 9:30 am-Noon.  Sunday School begins at 10:30 right after the Children’s Sermon.

Asbury UMC Welcomes

Pastor Laura Calos

Welcome to Asbury UM Church.  We are delighted you are visiting our website.  As you browse, I believe you will find the Asbury church family is focused on serving God while supporting the wider Jefferson County community and beyond.  We welcome with open arms everyone who walks through our doors. You will experience excellent music, which I believe you will find refreshing.

You are safe at Asbury.  Everyone is required to wear a mask.  Friendly ushers will escort you to your seats to ensure social distancing of 6 feet.  I truly hope you will visit us for the 10:15 Sunday Service and share in God’s love!

COVID-19 Notice

Everyone who enters Asbury must wear a mask. On Sunday morning, everyone enters through one entrance--Sterling Street--where a friendly usher will seat you 6 feet apart to ensure safe social distancing. The elevator is open at the Franklin Street entrance. Due to COVID restrictions and our desire to keep everyone safe and healthy, Nursery Care and Sunday School are curtailed for the time being. Several groups, such as Choirs, are not currently gathering because of social distancing restrictions. Some groups are meeting via Zoom and other groups are meeting in-person at the church using safe social distancing practices. We encourage you to contact the Asbury Church Office at 315-782-3240 to acquire the latest information.
