Archives and History


Our main focus today is to revise the church history so that it becomes a part of the everyday life of Asbury members. In order to do this, the committee needs researchers,   writers and an editor. This committee has to be able to add church history every year.

We do this by publishing a quarterly newsletter the Asbury Herald, maintaining our social media presence by using both Facebook and Twitter and by monitoring and updating our website.

As Kitchen Chairperson, it is my responsibility to put together and coordinate menus with other chairpersons and the Pastor, prepare and oversee meals, as well as provide a serving staff. I generally prepare meals, except for Café meals, for the majority if not all church related functions. As Kitchen Chairperson, I am also responsible for providing serving staff for the families of Asbury’s deceased active members for their Repast, only if held at Asbury United Methodist Church (I do not provide meal preparations or staff if the Repast is held off-site).


The Kitchen does not have assigned team members; however, I do have some full-time and part-time volunteers who are available to assist me with the meal preparations and serving.
