Sunday Worship this Summer
SERVICE TIMES: Join us for a 9am Outdoor Tent Service or an 11am Service in the Nave that will also be available by livestream on Ascension’s YouTube channel.
New Covid Protocols are in place as of August 1, 2021:
9am Outdoor Tent Service: While the wearing of masks is not required for people to attend our outdoor service, we are continuing to ask all those who are eligible to receive a vaccine but who, for whatever reason, are not yet fully vaccinated – please continue to wear a mask.
11am Indoor Nave Service: Masks (that properly cover the nose and mouth) must be worn at all times inside the building on Sunday mornings (except when briefly raised to receive Holy Communion).
Holy Communion: Holy Communion will continue to be offered in “both kinds” – that is, we will be offering the bread and the wine. The bread-bearers will dip a wafer in the communion wine and place the wafer into a communicant’s cupped hands. If anyone would prefer only to receive the wafer, they should indicate that to the bread-bearer.
Pandemic or no pandemic, here’s what we think about 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.
