Our Services

We at Asbury South encourage our members to worship in

whatever way best fits them.

Sundays at 10:00am in the church or from the parking lot on 91.1fm.

 

Dress: We like to meet you where you are. Many of our members come in casual dresses. You may see everything from jeans and tee-shirt to business casual or “traditional” church attire.

 

Children: Your little ones are always welcomed and encouraged to join us during services. 

 

Arrival: Typically, members enter through our main entrance, which faces the corner of Noe Bixby and Winchester Pike. You will be greeted with a smile and a warm welcome as you enter our narthex area. Once in the narthex, you will find handouts and additional church information. You’ll also be able to meet many of our members, who enjoy spending time visiting with and making new friends.

 

Accessibility: Our church is lucky to have our worship space on one story. We offer handicap accessible spaces for everyone. If you should need the assistance of a walker or a wheelchair, we have one you can use.

 

Giving: While all our services take up a “collection”, we see you as a guest and do not expect anything from you besides your joining us to worship and praise the Lord.

Our Ministries

Education (Ministry)

This ministry offers a variety of ways to learn about the Lord and Savior’s teachings. We offer adult and youth Sunday school, children’s church, confirmation, youth groups, vacation bible school, bible studies and discussion groups, as well as scholarships to further your faith and understanding.

Congregational Connections (Ministry)

A ministry group was formed to share the experience, celebration, and fellowship within Asbury South. They work to strengthen our faith by celebrating different events throughout the year and offering a plethora of different gatherings for fellowship, support, encouragement, and laughs. The group hosts the “Everybody’s Birthday Party”, a potluck lunch complete with cake and ice cream, the summer picnic, Thanksgiving potluck, and member spotlights.

Outreach (Ministry)                                                         

We are stretching our hand in God’s name to our congregation, the community, and our neighbors across the world. Our ministry has several ways we reach out ranging from serving warm meals to joining neighbors in their fundraisers. Our outreach helps to support:

  • Center for Groveport Madison Human Needs (CGMHN) and the Greater Groveport Food Pantry

  • Community Lunch – offered every Tuesday from 11am to 1pm and is free! Anyone who enters our church doors will be served a simple, hot, nutritious meal. While offer this as free to the community, a free will donation is always accepted, but NEVER expected.

  • Community Store – Arrive early or stay after lunch and browse our community store. The store offers gently used household items (dishes, small appliances, bedding) for a minimal donation. All money collected are used to assist “outside” our church or to complete projects to make our church more user-friendly.

  • Easter Egg Hunt

  • Friday Morning Café – The perfect opportunity for the community to gather weekly. Staffed completely by volunteers, diners receive made-to-order breakfast, all for a donation of $6. The café’s mission is to raise money to help support, maintain, and improve the church building.
