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.

Get Involved

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.

Our Mission

Come, Journey -

From Togetherness to Godliness,

From Welcome to Wonder,

In God's Love and Service.

Growing through Fellowship, Education, Collaboration and Imagination

     In this season of Pentecost, we pray that everyone is safe, healthy and looking forward to a great summer in upstate New York.  Sundays in summer, we are open for Holy Eucharist Service at  9:00 AM. No reservations are required although seating will be in every other row for safe distancing.  Facemasks may be removed once seated.  If you have been considering a visit, we cordially invite you to follow through on that and Come and See, Come and Hear, Come and Celebrate! May this summer be a time for each of us to give thanks and praise for renewal, safety and good health.  The service is also available via Livestream on our Facebook page and will be archived to our YouTube channel if you'd like to view it at another time.

     Every week, we also host a Noonday Prayer Service and Bible Study,  available on the Zoom Platform.  Links and times below:
