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.

this summer on mondays, beginning june 3rd:
Enhance your summer reading and join us for a fun and relaxing book study Mondays at noon in the Conference Room. You are welcome to join the group at any time and attend as you are able. We are discussing "Accidental Saints: Finding God in All the Wrong People" by Nadia Bolz-Weber. The book is available on Amazon. It's a great read and very interesting look at meeting Jesus in the most unlikely characters. Bring your lunch and come hungry to digest Nadia's off-beat but spot-on theology. See you then! Questions? Contact Mother Marci at 214-340-4196.

saturday, august 3:
In any given day in the Dallas Fort Worth area, there are nearly 4,000 men, women and children who are homeless. Many live on the streets, in cars and in shelters. Austin Street Center provides food and shelter at night to homeless men and women---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. On Saturday August 3rd Ascension will bring and serve dinner at Austin Street. Please join us as we meet at the church at 5:30p. Bring two (or one or more) cooked party-size lasagnas wrapped (preferably in newspaper). We need at least 50 lasagnas and 15 servers. This is a great opportunity for parents and children ! It is very important we know how many lasagnas and servers we have, so please click here to sign up, or you can sign up in the Narthex, or email Brian Kasper or call 972-358-5965.
