Newcomer Lunch: Sunday, April 30 after the 11am service
Join Ascension staff for lunch after the 11am service on the last Sunday of April. We will meet in the Hunt Rooms (larger rooms that look onto the courtyard). There is no agenda – just a chance to get to know each other. If you are new … or if you still ‘feel’ new … you are welcome! It’s helpful if you let Jess Bennett know you’re coming. See you there!
Explore Ascension: Saturday, June 10 from 1 – 4pm
If you haven’t yet attended our Explore Ascension class, here’s your invitation! We will be holding our next class on Saturday afternoon, June 10 from 1-4pm. This one-time class is a part of our membership process at Ascension, although you certainly don’t need to commit to becoming a member to benefit from participating! It’s a great opportunity to get to know our clergy more personally, as well as make connections with other newcomers.
Throughout the class we discuss Anglican history and distinctives, who we are as a local church, as well as some of the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of our corporate worship practices including a ‘tour’ through the Nave (our worship space…sometimes called a sanctuary). All of this is helpful especially if you have not come from an Anglican background and have questions. We provide coffee, snacks and childcare. If you are considering putting down ‘roots’ at Church of the Ascension, we encourage you to come and get to know us a little better. Please let us know if you’re planning to join us.
