    Thanksgiving Eve Service: Call for Testimonies

    Wednesday, November 22 at 7pm

    One of the aspects of our Thanksgiving Eve service that makes it unique is that we offer a time for members and friends of Ascension to give public testimonies of thanksgiving to the goodness of God in their lives. If you would like to give a testimony, please email our rector at jonathan.millard@ascensionpittburgh.org. The service begins at 7pm.

     

     

    Dessert & Conversation for Internationals

    Wednesday, November 22 at 5:30pm

    Our ministry to internationals is hosting a Thanksgiving Eve Pie Dessert & Conversation Hour prior to the service on Wednesday, November 22 from 5:30 – 7pm. We need pumpkin, apple, blueberry, peach, sweet potato, lemon, and chocolate pies, and just as importantly, we would love you to join us for conversation with the internationals for just part or all of that time. We know that this is a busy evening of the year! We are inviting internationals to join us at our Thanksgiving Eve 7pm service as well. So, if you can bake or buy a pie and guarantee delivery, or if you want to join us that evening just to talk to internationals and get to know them, please email PittsburghEnglish4u@gmail.com or phone LuAnn at 614-607-3067.

     

     

    Invite an International for Thanksgiving?

    If you are willing to open your home to have two or more Internationals join you for a Thanksgiving dinner or a meal, we would love to hear from you! You may have to provide transportation from the church as well but not always – some internationals like to drive or take a bus so that they can leave when they wish. Students usually do not like to go alone. If you would like to host, please email PittsburghEnglish4u@gmail.com or phone LuAnn at 614-607-3067.

     

     

    Christ the King Sunday: 2018 Pledge Cards

    Sunday, November 26

    This is the last Sunday in the Church’s liturgical year and also the conclusion to our “Kingdom Calling” preaching series. We ask that stewardship pledge cards be returned by this Sunday. We will offer ourselves to God in his service, in thankfulness for all he has done for us and in obedience to his call upon our lives.

     

    SANCTUS: A Space for Advent 

    Wednesday, November 29 from 7 – 8:30pm in the New Catacombs

    Everyone in the parish is invited to join our young adult group for an evening of singing, prayer, and contemplation as we approach the Advent season of anticipation. We will close the evening with a time of fellowship and snacks.

     

     

    Three opportunities to give:

     

    EECM Giving Tree

    The giving tree is back for another year. Here’s how it works: We purchase gifts in November to be distributed to those in need in December through East End Cooperative Ministries. Please visit the tree at the back of the Nave, take a tag and bring in your gift before the end of November. Thanks!

     

    Foster Love Project

    Each year, more than 15,000 kids are served through the foster care system in Pennsylvania. Many of these kids are taken to a foster home with no belongings or a few items thrown into a trash bag. The Foster Love Project provides placement bags to be given to kids at time of a placement. A complete bag contains (new items only): large backpack, pajamas (one winter/one summer), socks, small blanket, stuffed animal, toothbrush and toothpaste, body pouf and wash (in ziplock). For more info or to participate, please email mandyjabbour@gmail.com or visit http://www.fosterloveproject.org/.

     

    Children’s Christmas Stockings

    This year our children’s ministry hopes to stuff 100 Christmas stockings for kids at the Light of Life Rescue Mission on the northside. Some ideas include: gum, yo-yo, decks of cards, balls, jacks, jump rope, small games/mind teasers, small stuffed animals or books, unique pens and markers. Drop off in the education wing (room 105). Contact matt.ulrich@ascensionpittsburgh.org for more information.

     

    The Gospel According to Isaiah

    Saturday, December 2, 9 and 16 from 8:30 – 10am

    In a three-week series during Advent, we will be learning how to follow the apostles in their exegesis of the ‘Gospel according to Isaiah.’ If you long to understand the Old Testament as Christian scripture, if you long to understand how ‘the New is in the Old concealed, the Old is in the New revealed,’ as Augustine once counseled us to understand the Scriptures, then please join us first thing in the morning on three Saturdays (Dec. 2, 9 and 16) from 8:30am – 10am in the Hunt Rooms. Childcare, light pastries and coffee will be provided. Please see the November edition of the Ascent (available on our information tables and online) for more information.
