Older Adult Ministry is a vital part of the total life and ministry at Asbury. This ministry provides fun and fellowship by going on day trips to local attractions, hosting fun socials and participating in small groups.
On Sunday mornings from 10-10:45 a.m., Asbury has weekly and short term Sunday School Classes. The weekly classes are listed below.
- Beacon Class: A class for older adults who enjoy fellowship and Bible study.
- Crusaders: An older adult class that studies a variety of topics and enjoys guest speakers.
Through out the year, there are many ways for older adults to get involved. There are seasonal small groups, special outings and gatherings, and the annual Christmas light tour of Kansas City.
"Biblical Heroes and Heroines"
(VBS for Older Adults)
Vacation Bible School for Older Adults returns this summer. As the Asbury Children learn to "discover their strength in God," so too will the Asbury Older Adults! There will be three evening sessions: Sunday, June 25, Monday, June 26, and Wednesday, June 28. Each night will be held in the Parlor, 6-8 p.m. A light supper will be served and a special VBS dessert concludes the evening.
In between, Rev. Pam Bauer Nolan leads a presentation and discussion of her biblical hero's/heroine's - and your favorites, too.
Register to attend by completing a registration form, to be sent to you next week, or by going on-line at visitasbury.org. Go to the
"connect" tab and scroll down to "older adults." There is no fee for Older Adult VBS this year.
Summer Day Trip Outings
Day Trip to Camp Chippewa / Tuesday, June 27.
How long has it been since you've seen the Asbury Lodge at Camp Chippewa? Years ago, members from Asbury helped plan and build the lodge which is the main cabin at Camp Chippewa, the United Methodist camp site just south of Ottawa.
So, take a day trip to Chippewa on Tuesday, June 27. The bus will leave Asbury at 9:30 a.m. You will tour (by bus) the entire campgrounds, stopping to worship at the outdoor chapel. Also, Asbury Lodge, will be a stop before eating lunch on site with all the children attending camp that week!
