UMM - Asbury United Methodist Men

Asbury United Methodist Men is an organization of Christian fellowship for men that serves the Asbury church family in many ways.  Refurbishing the church's storage building was only one many examples that brought men together in bonding fellowship and service.  Another was the funding and dedication of an early 1900's unknown children's mass grave area with a monument in our cemetery:
