We welcome all kinds of people to worship with us and become part of our community – single or married, old or young, urban or suburban. Church of the Ascension draws people from all corners of Allegheny County, and our community groups that meet during the week are located in homes all over the Greater Pittsburgh area.
Ascension also spans a wide age range having many young families and a burgeoning baby population, with many seniors. Our congregation draws children and youth from many different school districts, charter schools, private schools, cyber schools and also home schools. All are welcome to participate in our children and youth ministries. There is a significant population of undergraduate and graduate college students, primarily from the Pitt and CMU campuses, who are welcome to participate in our college ministry. We especially welcome into our midst those with cognitive disabilities and offer a very special program called WINGS to assist in meeting their particular needs. If you are a young adult, a senior or an international, we also have something for you.
We’re a diverse bunch! We’re certainly not perfect – we’re people from Pittsburgh who desire to be disciples of Jesus Christ. Our hope is to be a church family to all who enter through our doors, introducing Jesus to those who do not yet know him, and helping those who do know Jesus to become more like him in every area of their lives.
