Celebrate Advent with the Church of the Ascension

Advent is a warm, exciting time in the Episcopal Church calendar as we await the birth of Christ, and our Ascension family offers plenty of times for people to enjoy the celebration together. Besides our Sunday morning services, we have the special midweek offerings:

Wednesdays in Advent

December 4: Program and Advent Meal

December 11: Program and Mini Pig Roast

December 18: Program and Hor d’oeuvres

(Each begin at 6 p.m.)

Lenten Opportunities

Join us at 6 PM on March 6 for the Ash Wednesday Liturgy and Holy Communion.  Subsequent Wednesdays will include Stations of the Cross, Lenten reflections, and a light meal.

Biscuits and Bibles and Fellowship

Adult Sunday School – “Biscuits and Bibles” – meets in Grace House on Sunday mornings at 9:30.

Those who would just like to have coffee and fellowship (and a biscuit!) are invited to meet in the Parish Hall between Sunday services.

Fellowship continues after the 10:30 service with coffee and cookies in the Parish Hall.
