At the close of 2017, Tom Gibson, our Business Administrator for 29 years and faithful servant of Asbury Church for almost 40 years, will be retiring.

Our menu will include: green salad, Chicken Marsala, Penne pasta, red sauce, dinner rolls, green beans, fruit cup, cake, ice water, lemonade, and coffee. For any dietary restrictions or special requests (vegan, food allergies, etc.), please contact Charley Myers at .

Reserve Your Seat

In an effort to ensure that you have a seat reserved due to seating capacity, we will be selling tickets.

Look for the ticket tables at both Welcome Desk areas. Tickets are $8.00 per adult (13 and older) and $5.00 for ages 12 and younger. Advanced purchase is required and the firm deadline for ticket purchases is January 7, 2018.
