Discovery [Updated Info]

We are excited about our Discovery weekend coming up March 4-6! 

This opportunity to experience God’s love and the church will help students as they walk through faith issues and seek to understand what they believe. It will help them in their relationships with others and with God. We believe Discovery will transform the lives of individuals as well as the life of our church.  Whether they have been active or not, everyone is invited to experience the WONDER of God’s love!
The event is designed with our high school students leading small groups and other activities for middle school students.  This is such a great opportunity for high school students  to invest in younger youth and for middle school students to get to see older youth in a different way.  We hope every middle school and high school student in our church will take advantage of this excellent opportunity.
The cost for Discovery is only $60 and middle school students can bring a friend who does not regularly attend Asbury for FREE!  It begins on Friday night, March 4 and ends on Sunday, March 6. We will provide the meals, activities, Discovery t-shirt and supplies. All you need is a Bible, sleeping bag or air mattress, a pillow, casual clothes, and toiletries.  Please sign up as soon as possible by clinking the link below.  You can also email us at if you have any questions.  Registration will be $70 on March 4.
