About AH

OUR MISSION

We exist to glorify God and produce fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ who transforms the world.

A History of Loving This Community

In 1820 a group of people began meeting in a small, log schoolhouse on Eight Mile Road. They called themselves the Asbury Society in honor of Francis Asbury, the first Methodist Bishop in America. In 1825 they were chartered as the Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church. 

Around 1835, they purchased a lot on Forest Road near Asbury Road and built a small frame building and named it the Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church. In March, 1921, they bought property near the present day Arby’s and remodeled an old substation of the Interurban Traction Line. They changed the name to Forestville Community Methodist Episcopal Church.  When that building was too small, the church bought property at our present site at the corner of Beechmont and Forest and held their first service in the new building on June 15, 1953.

Approaching 200 Years of Ministry

Over the years we have expanded our campus and grown to have Sunday worship services.  In 2020, we will celebrate 200 years of faithful service to God and to our community. Our mission and ministry is vibrant and impacting in so many ways. We encourage you to experience AH and let us help you find ways to get connected and make a difference!
