Sunday, July 3 after both services
Nate and Erika Twichell are launching a new ministry with SAMS (The Society of Anglican Missionaries and Senders), leading an AGAPE Year program for recent high school graduates. As they wrote in the June Ascent, our parish newsletter: “The decision about what to do after high school is a big one. Choosing a college or job, major, housing, friends – all biggies. Students often approach these major decisions having had very little time to see who they are in God’s story and understand their own unique role. What if students spent time in fellowship and study to learn more of who our God is and how He has created them? What if students had a year to engage in God’s local and worldwide mission?”
While it has global dimensions, the AGAPE Year program will be based in North America. With that in mind, we are pleased to come alongside Nate and Erika and launch their mission endeavor with a very American celebration on the July 4th holiday weekend with a Red, White and Blueberry Event! Rather than our normal hospitality after Sunday services, please join Nate and Erika, alongside other members of Ascension’s mission committee, and enjoy pound cake, berries and ice cream. If the weather permits, we’ll be outside after both services where Nate and Erika will be available for conversation about their new ministry.
We are adding a membership class in July for any who seek to investigate what membership at Ascension involves. Childcare and a continental breakfast provided. We begin at 9am and will end by Noon. If you are interested in attending, email Marilyn.
Our July edition of The Ascent is available here. Included in this edition are articles on summer reading, a mission endeavor focused on healing ‘orphaned hearts’, an update on our organ renovation project, as well as a detailed listing of upcoming events this summer and the fall. All the details are here!
