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:

 

kids-u $$ collection for backpacks:

 

 

Believe  it or not, school is right around the corner and many children need help with new backpacks and supplies. This year Ascension will be collecting donations for new backpacks for children in the Kids-U program as well as for Dinka children, and children with needs  at  Sam Tasby  Middle  School. Kids-U  is an after school program located in low-income apartment housing throughout the city. Currently  Kids-U has grown to 11 after school programs serving over 400 children! Diana Baker, Executive Director of Kids-U (and a member of Ascension!) has access to purchasing quality, new backpacks for only $5 per backpack! So, our goal is to collect enough funds for over 150 backpacks that will be distributed to children who need a new backpack at the beginning of the school year. Collection for the backpack money will begin on Sunday, July  8 so  look for Diana Baker in the Narthex if you would like more information. The collection ends Sunday, July 29th. You are also welcome to put a check in the offertory, but please specify “Kids-U”. Thank you in advance for your support!

BLOOD DRIVE - SUNDAY, JULY 29, 2018:

                                

It's Summer and blood supplies are always low during the hot, vacation months. Please consider giving a pint of yours to help save the life of someone else. It's easy, fast and very convenient. Join us in the Carter Blood Mobile any time on Sunday, July 29th. Our goal is 21 pints. If you are able, help us meet that goal. You can sign up in the Narthex or click on the image to the left. Or just show up that morning and we'll fit you in.
