Welcome to Asbury!


Asbury is a multicultural church serving the Fox Meadows and Hickory Hill

communities in Southeast Memphis. It’s a place for all people to become disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Searching for understanding? Feel like you’re missing a connection? Do you have religion vs spirituality struggles? Let’s celebrate answers together! Join us on Sunday mornings for worship and fellowship.

Asbury is blessed to be apart of the Southeast Memphis Cooperative parish with two other churches in the community.  El Redentor (click here) is committed to serving the Hispanic community with worship services at Asbury.  Aldersgate UMC (click here) is also a partner in bringing the word of God to our community, with service at 11:30 a.m. located on Willow.

We hope to see you soon!


Our next Bible Study is something a little different — beginning on
Wednesday, April 6, at 10 a.m., we will dive into Invitation to the Old
Testament, an eight-session study. The study is part of the “Disciple”
series, but offers a much shorter commitment than the basic Disciple
studies. We hope to see as many of people as possible there.
If you are interested and would like a study book, please call the church office at your earliest convenience. As always, the study will also be held
at Aldersgate on Thursday mornings at 10 a.m., and all are welcome to attend the session that best suits your schedule.

Asbury Flea Market!


Community Flea Market
Saturday, May 21, 2016
7 a.m. – 2 p.m. ● Come early and stay late!
No rain date needed — we’re having it inside!!!
Who can be a vendor? YOU can! You don’t need to own your own business or be
experienced with flea markets (although we welcome those people, too!). Feel
free to rent a booth and make it your own personal rummage sale!
● Booth rental is only $20 for the whole day; booths are approximately 8’ x 10’.
● Outdoor space will be available at the seller’s request. However, please note
that in the case of inclement weather, there will be no refunds on outdoor
space, only the option to move inside.
● Certain booths do have access to electricity; if you need power, please make
sure to specify one of those booths when reserving a spot.
What else will be going on? In addition to the Flea Market, we will have a
Concession Stand; proceeds will go toward Asbury’s apportionments in support of
Methodist ministries locally in our community and in the world at large.
How do I rent a booth? To rent space, you need to contact Debbie Williams as
soon as possible. She may be reached at (901) 355-5397. Booths are only
reserved when rent is paid, so make your reservations now! Registration forms
will available in the narthex beginning the week of April 4.
I can’t rent a booth — how else can I participate? As always, we need volunteers
to help set up, clean up, work concessions, and generally help provide a warm
Asbury welcome! We especially need two or three volunteers as “hall monitors”
to direct our visitors who need to use the restroom. Come join us for a fun day,
and bring your family and friends!
