Formation offerings for adults

Formation (Christian Education) is open to everyone and you are welcome to join anytime. Our Sunday formation begins at 9:00-9:50 each week during the school year.

Fellowship: Parish Hall.

Unstructured time in the parish hall to relax and visit with others from the congregation. Coffee provided.

Book Study: Parlor

Led by Randy Nelson, this class will meet to read and discuss books chosen specifically for the group on spirituality, theology, philosophy and more.

Men’s Bible Fellowship: Office (“workspace”)

Open to all men regardless of age. This group focuses on reading and conversation over books about life, work, and God; also great fellowship and “darn good coffee.”

Ukulele/Music Group: Paula Tucker Chapel

Ascension’s own “No-Name Ukulele Group” has been practicing and performing together for awhile now, and they bring joy to everyone they meet. Check them out during formation hour; sing along or grab your ukulele and join in!

Other Formation Opportunities

On break for the summer….

Adult Choir: (10:15 service)

Intergenerational Formation

Occasionally, we will meet with all the classes together in the parish hall for special programs during formation hour. Keep an eye out for those dates and announcements in the bulletin. These will often be close to high Holy Days and will include creative programming for all ages.

Monthly Fellowship Opportunities

50+ (Alternate 3rd Thursday or Friday evening monthly)

Lively gathering of older adults having too much fun over drinks, dinner, worship, and fellowship. Meets monthly in parishioners’ homes for a meal and Eucharist.  For more information, keep an eye on the @Ascension email or our weekly bulletin.

Young Adults/Young Families (varies)

Various gatherings for young adults and young families. From lunches to game nights, to pool parties, this is a great place to find community. Please contact Sarah Kiltzke to be put on the list for announcements from this group.

If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Klitzke, Director of Christian Formation, at any
time or speak with a member of the clergy.
