We will be having a Thanksgiving Eve Service of Evensong on Wednesday, November 26 at 7pm. Please join us! Childcare is available for infants – 4 year olds. We invite friends and members of Ascension to give testimony to God’s working at this service. If you have a testimony to share please contact the rector, Jonathan Millard, at 412-621-4361, extension 220.
2 Corinthians 8:5b
At the end of each calendar year, members of Ascension are asked to submit a financial pledge for the following year. Part of what makes it possible for Ascension to be a faithful Christian community is the consistent pledging and giving of its members and friends. May we be like those first Christians at Corinth who “voluntarily gave according to their means, and even beyond their means.” (2 Cor. 8:3)
Pledges plays an important role in the process of tithing. A financial pledge encourages individuals and families to be intentional about giving, and also encourages accountability. Members and friends of Ascension are encouraged to take time prayerfully to consider their commitment to tithe the treasure God has given them to the Lord’s work. Pledge cards were mailed to parish homes and are available at church. They may be filled out and brought back to church at any time prior to the end of the year. Alternately, an online pledge can be made by using the link available here.
Our Ascent newsletter for November is available here. In it you can find out about upcoming services, read about the history of the Columbarium, find out about a visiting missionary and more! Since we are celebrating our 125th year anniversary from Ascension Day 2014 – Ascension Day 2015, a special piece is written about the history of our facility as well as several works of art in the Nave.
From Labor Day weekend through the end of June, we have three services on Sundays beginning at 7:30am, 9am and 11am. For service details during this period, please click here. In between the two main services, from approximately 10 – 11am, we host a Hospitality Hour in the Parish Hall. All are welcome to join us for good food and fantastic fellowship!
