Opportunities for Spiritual Formation
Lent Is Here!!
There is a two-pronged spiritual practice approach – one is adding and one is subtracting. You can do one or both.
- Adding: The spiritual practice for March (which will extend into April due to Lent) is Journaling. There will be an in-person class Saturday mornings beginning March 5 to assist participants in accountability and practice. You can do it on your own or join the class. Youth, men, women – journaling is for everyone!
- Subtracting: Fasting is a crucial classic spiritual discipline that, unfortunately, we usually only talk about during Lent – psst – fasting is for any time. Purchase the book pictured here and join me on Monday evenings (beginning March 7) in-person or on zoom. I have done this fast and it is powerful. I invite you to come alongside me – men, women, youth – all are welcome!
There is also a devotional journal:

Faithful & Inclusive Bible Study starts April 21!
Please join Pastor Tom as he explores Faithful & Inclusive: The Bible, Sexuality and the United Methodist Church, a video series developed by Rev. Rob Fuquay, the senior pastor of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Indianapolis. This five-session study will be held at Asbury at 7:00 pm on Thursday nights, beginning on Thursday, April 21st, and concluding on May 19th. Pastor Tom will facilitate the discussions so that the participants can engage in respectful conversations focused on scripture, tradition, personal experiences, and reason.
