Episcopal Church of the Ascension welcomes you...

We are a diverse community of faith that gathers to worship God.  Our worship includes reading and reflecting on scripture, singing hymns and celebrating the sacraments of the church.  We endeavor to learn together, about faith, about God and about one another.  We serve together in a variety of ministries that include school partnerships, feeding ministries, advocacy and much more.  We hope that you'll join us as we seek to restore unity with God and one another.
