Farm Tour visitors can stop by Asbury United Methodist Church in Nokesville to help members celebrate its 125th anniversary. The building across the road from the current church on Fleetwood Dr. was built in 1893 as Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church, according to the history books consulted by Martha Andrew, the new church historian.

Apparently, there was an Evangelical United Brethren Church nearby which dated back to 1917; however, a photo provided by the pastor indicates that it was dedicated in 1933. The Brethren Church merged with the Methodist Church and the combined church moved to the new site, the current location, in November 1968 and renamed Asbury United Methodist Church. It’s currently led by Pastor Claire Miller, who has been there since July 2016.

The old church, designated an historic landmark by the Prince William Historic Commission, will be open during the Farm Tour. In addition, the church will host children’s activities and games. A barbequed chicken dinner, with baked beans, cole slaw, roll and homemade dessert, will be available for purchase.

Andrews said the church is busy in the community and beyond. “We have a friendly and accepting mission-focused congregation and our members work well together to accomplish things. For a small church, we’re involved in many different missions, from local schools [to national and international projects].”

Asbury United Methodist Church has donated backpacks, coats and mittens for local needy students, gifts for the Angel Tree project, Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets and hurricane buckets and supports Samaritan’s Purse missions. The church invites the community children to its annual vacation Bible school and holds weekly Bible studies. Sunday school is at 9:30 a.m., followed by the 10:30 a.m. worship service.

The church is located at 14113 Fleetwood Dr. in Nokesville. Call 703-594-3015 or visit its Facebook page AsburyUMCNokesville.
