Asbury United Methodist Church’s Trunk or Treat is just one of the great ways for kids to get involved. Children in K5-5th grade will also love their children’s ministry, Kids Town. This ministry guides kids to follow Jesus by presenting living examples of what it means to be a Christian through:

One of Asbury’s missions is to serve its neighbors near and far. It does this through various assistance programs and by running its very own food pantry to provide non-perishable goods to those who need help putting food on the table. Additionally, Asbury tithes 10 percent of its annual giving to local and international nonprofit organizations.
During the month of October, Kids Town’s mission will be collecting PB&J to support Asbury’s Food Pantry and Oak Mountain Missions—and they’d love your help!
