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
Happy New Year 2021! We hope that everyone reading this is safe, healthy and making the best of this unusual time! Of course, we are now well into the season of Epiphany. We have the opportunity is to see the Light of Christ coming toward us, from the darkness of late autumn. 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 will soon become longer once again, leading, we hope, to a glorious springtime of renewal, safety and good health for everyone, here and everywhere.
Thanks to the planning and devotion of our dedicated staff and volunteers, we will be offering a lovely season of pre-recorded YouTube and FaceBook videos for online worship and enjoyment over the next few months. (please call for our e-Bulletins or find clickable links below).
We offer our warm welcome to you to attend online for as many of these as possible, which we believe will enrich everyone’s celebrations at this holy time of year.
Finally - While this year is so unusual, the needs of the world continue. Be sure to 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 best wishes for a blessed New Year as we give thanks and praise to God.
