Asbury United Methodist Church dates back to at least 1817. The present-day church was built on Glendale Road in Galax about 1939.
The church has seen many changes over the years. Berylene Patton, a lifetime member, along with her husband, Mack, established a clothing and household closet prior to her death in 2004.
Recently, Mack and Berylene’s daughter, Karen Poole, along with several others have expanded the clothes/household closet and food pantry.
