Our Worship

Worship is the highlight of our life together as a church. Eugene Peterson has said, “Worship is the strategy by which we interrupt our preoccupation with ourselves and attend to the presence of God.”

Our desire is that our experience of the presence of God through worship shapes us for the rest of the week: “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.” (Romans 12:1, The Message). Worship doesn’t end when we walk out the door. Rather, the hope is that our time together on Sunday mornings is just the beginning. Please join us in this journey.

SERVICE TIMES: Join us at 9am or 11am

Each week one of our two services will be livestreamed on Ascension’s YouTube channel. For more information, or to download this week’s bulletin, see our News and Events page.

Sunday Worship protocols:

  • Masks are no longer required indoors.
  • Childcare is offered in rooms 101 and 102 of the Minnie Smith Education Wing from 8:45am – 12:30pm. All workers are fully vaccinated.
  • Sunday School will run concurrently with both services. Children aged 4 – 5th grade begin with their parents, leaving for class after the children’s talk, and returning in time for communion. We will do our best to provide good ventilation for classroom spaces.
  • Regarding Holy Communion, the bread-bearers will dip a wafer in the communion wine and place the wafer into a communicant’s cupped hands. We will continue with this mode of communion for the foreseeable future, not going back to a common cup.
