Where are you located?
Our address is: 1751 27th St. Columbus, IN 47201

We are one block west of Central Avenue on 27th Street.

What are your services like?
At 8:45 AM we have our Traditional Worship Service with hymns and choruses featuring our pipe organ. Our choir usually sings at this service and a special time for children’s teaching or ministry moments are a part of each worship experience. You might also hear our bell choir or other special music at this service as well. Pastor Dave shares a relevant message and the service lasts 1 hour.

At 11:00 AM we have our modern Contemporary Worship Service in our Contemporary Worship Center, which features our band and praise team leading in contemporary worship songs. Pastor Dave shares a relevant message and the service usually ends by noon. During this worship time, the children also have their own age-appropriate service called Jesus And Me (JAM). JAM is located in the Kidz Zone down the hall from the Contemporary Worship Center.

See our Worship page for complete details.

Is childcare available during services?

Yes! The nursery is available Sunday mornings from 8:30AM to 12:15PM for babies to 3 year old’s who are not potty trained. The nursery is located in the Blue Room, in the hallway outside of the Contemporary Worship Center. We do a background check on all our childcare workers, and they are trained in First Aid, CPR, AED operation, and universal precautions. Our Child and Youth Protection Policy  was adopted and implemented because of our unwavering commitment to the safety of our children and youth.

Sunday School is available for 3 year old’s (potty-trained) to high school from 10:00AM to 11:00AM.

Jesus And Me (JAM), is our children’s program available during our 11:00 service for children who are at least 3 years old and potty-trained.  JAM is located in the Kidz Zone, down the hall from the Contemporary Worship Center.

Do I have to dress up?
Only if you want to! You will find a wide range of outfits at Asbury ranging from jeans to suits and dresses. No one dresses up in our 11 AM service so the rule is… Be Comfortable!

Will you make me stand up or make me uncomfortable in any way?
No. Our goal is to make your visit as comfortable as possible.

Are you going to ask me for money?
We collect an offering at both services as an act of worship. Giving is our way of showing our trust in the Lord and our offering of thanksgiving for His blessings. It is for our regular attenders and guests should not feel obligated to give.

What’s up with the sign-in sheets?
One of the goals of the church is to help people connect with each other and the sign up sheets allow us to keep up with everyone. Your privacy is important to us, so we do not share your information without your permission. If you are a visitor, we will send you a thank you card, but no one will show up at your door unannounced. The sheets also give our people an opportunity to share their needs with us.
