Reconciling Ministry Discernment Process

On May 8, 2019 our Church Council voted to begin the formal process to explore IF Asbury is feeling called to become a Reconciling Congregation. The nomination committee identified the following to become Asbury’s Exploration Team under the guidance of Pastor Jen: Tricia Kelly, Mike Zaleski, Roxanne Kuhn, Griff Hall, Shirley Palmer and Ann Brady. In the coming months there will be opportunities for each member of our congregation to express what concerns they feel should be identified and explored as we make this journey together with grace, hope and love.

In September, we distributed an all Church Survey that helped the team in developing topics for a Calendar of Learning Opportunities. A lending library was compiled of resources that address many LGBTQ issues related to individuals, their families and our faith. This library can be found in the Church Office. 

In October, we began hosting monthly Learning Experiences. These monthly gatherings are held in the Fellowship Hall following the 11 o’clock worship service. Everyone is invited to come, enjoy a light lunch and grow in our relationships with each other as we think about our church’s future. We hope to see you there!!
