SERVE ON A WORSHIP TEAM
"When we serve, our work itself renews us. In helping we may find a sense of satisfaction; in serving, we find a sense of gratitude. In serving we see life as Holy." Rachel Naomi Remen
SERVING IN WORSHIP
Our worship is the principal way we learn about God and one another. Serving in worship allows members to invest themselves in this process. The Episcopal style of worship includes a variety of ways for members to participating with the clergy in leading worship.
PREPARING FOR WORSHIP
Each week, the creative members of Ascension's Flower Guild bring the beauty of God’s world to our worship space. Interested in learning more? Contact Mark Unkenholz
Members of the altar guild prepare the linens and other items (Chalices etc) for our worship services.

GREETERS AND USHERS
