Our congregation believes that “Hospitality is Job One”. We invite all our neighbors to come and worship, pray, sing, learn, eat and play. All are welcome in Christ’s community.
Church of the Ascension is so much more than the building it calls home. We are a community of people seeking fellowship, changing lives and sharing the joy God brings to each new day.
Come, Journey -
From Togetherness to Godliness,
From Welcome to Wonder,
In God's Love and Service.
Growing through Fellowship, Education, Collaboration and Imagination
As we approach Easter, we hope that everyone reading this is safe, healthy and making the best of this unusual time! We are planning to reopen on Easter Sunday, April 4 for a 10AM service in the Great Hall. Reservations are required as there is limited capacity. You may call the office to get a reservation. There is some repair work in process in the church and it is safer for us to begin in the Great Hall. The challenge is to balance safety for ourselves and our loved ones every day, while taking joy in the season, and sharing that joy with others. Especially this year, we do so seek the light. The days are becoming longer once again, leading, to a glorious springtime of renewal, safety and good health for everyone, here and everywhere.

While this year is so unusual, the needs of the world continue. Please support charities of your choice to share God’s love. As the days will soon begin to have longer light, let Holy Light continue to shine on you and your families and loved ones. We send to all Blessings for Health and Safety, and a Holy Lent as we give thanks and praise to God.
