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 have temporarily suspended their normal meeting time or place (these are being continuously reevaluated). We encourage you to contact the Asbury Church Office at 315-782-3240 to acquire the latest information.
