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.
Upcoming events at Episcopal Church of the Ascension

If you would like to help -
We will be collecting candy in receptacles in the narthex.
We are also looking for volunteers to assist with the games or to decorate the courtyard or to decorate small tables (our “trunks”) and hand out candy. (Costumes are optional but encouraged.)
If you are a baker, we are in need of baked goods for the “Graveyard Walk” too.
If you are interested, there will be sign-up sheets on the kiosk in the narthex or you can contact Shelly Heron at firstname.lastname@example.org or 214-796-8228.
Austin Street Center provides food and shelter at night to homeless men, women and children---many who actually have jobs but do not make a large enough wage to secure permanent housing. Ascension has been involved with Austin Street Center for many years by providing a hot meal throughout the year. On Saturday November 3 we will again bring and serve dinner at Austin Street Center. Please join us as we meet at the church at 5:30p. Bring two (or more) cooked party-size lasagnas wrapped (preferably in newspaper). We need 50 lasagnas and serving begins at 6:00pm. It is very important that we know who is providing food and/or helping to serve, so please sign up in the Narthex or online by clicking on the image to the right. This is a great service opportunity for parents with children! For questions, please contact Brian Kasper at email@example.com or call 972-358-5965, or Martha Wach at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 214-289-8882.
