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 through 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.

November 4: help provide dinner at austin Street Shelter
In any given day in the City of Dallas, there are nearly 5,000 men, women and children who are homeless. Many live on the streets, in cars and in shelters. Austin Street Center cares by providing 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 Shelter for many years by providing a hot meal throughout the year. The next Feed the Homeless for 2017 is coming up on November 4. Please join us as we meet at the church at 5:30pm. 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 click on the "Sign-Up" button below or on the sheet in the Narthex. This is a great service opportunity for parents with children! For questions, please email Brian Kasper or phone 972-358-5965, or email Martha Wach or phone 214-289-8882.
November 5: All saints day
All Saints Day is celebrated on November 1st across the church, many move this celebration to the following Sunday to ensure the fullest participation possible. Our worship this day acknowledges the significance of this day and includes the Sacrament of Baptism. If you are interested in being baptized contact Fr. Paul. At Ascension, we will also have our pledge ingathering this Sunday.
December 17: Live nativity
This annual event helps bring the story of the nativity to life. A narrator recalls the story of the nativity as others act out the events around Jesus birth. The live animals are often a highlight.
