Francis Asbury Commemoration

In honor of the bicentennial of Francis Asbury’s death in 1816, the United Methodist Church presents a documentary on him, “Francis Asbury: A Flame Spirit.” It includes footage filmed at Barratt’s Chapel, in Frederica, Delaware, the archival repository of the Peninsula-Delaware Conference. Asbury frequently visited the Preston area, and preached at Bethesda on several occasions.
