Lenten Soup Suppers


Terry Kahn made the most delicious Black Bean soup, and it was complimented by almond cake courtesy of Joe Ann Kingdon. Michelle Feagin’s presentation on her book “Breadcrumbs” was heartfelt and enlightening. We continue to have an enjoyable Wednesday evening of soup and lesson.

Sunday School

Sunday School for both adults and children is every Sunday at 9:30! Adults are gathering in the Church Library, bring your coffee, and will be taught by Fr. Mark. Children and Youth will meet with Allison Garcia in the youth room. (There may be a treat!) Allison needs assistance! If you are able to help even just one Sunday a month, please let her know!   

A Simple way to help

Simply put: We need pictures! Of events, of people, of campus! We want to have current pictures of the things that Ascension does to use in publications and to create and maintain a strong social media presence. Ascension has so much to offer….we need to let the world know who we are and what we do! We have created a centralized location for all photos to be sent to. So when you snap a picture at church or a church related event, please, please, forward it to photos@ascensionepiscopalchurch.org. Look through your phone and send us anything you have for the last year, that will at least get us started. :) 

On-Going Ministry

Lunch with Friends

Thank you very much to the men and women who have cook for the residents of the Mission. They appreciate you and we appreciate you. There is always room for more members to join this ministry. They meet the first Saturday of every month at the Mission of Yahweh and are organized by Michelle Feagin. Please contact her for more information and to answer your questions.


Fill the Box

Don’t forget to your non perishable donations for WHAM. Let’s fill the box!  Crackers and cheese, fruit cups, canned meat, and canned ravioli are very helpful items. Canned soup and veggies, PB&J, and rice and beans are always needed staples.


WHAM Recycling Center

The recycling station in the Parish Hall accepts paper and plastic bags, egg cartons, condiments, and individually wrapped plastic ware. These items are donated to WHAM and are an excellent way to keep usable items out of landfills. However, we cannot accept newspapers, aluminum cans or plastic bottles, please do not leave these items to be thrown away. You are encouraged to find other ways to recycle these items.


Give the Gift of Sight

All year long, we collect eyeglasses, cases, sunglasses, frames, and lenses -- all things related to vision for donation.  In late January/early February, Constance O’Brien delivers this year long assembly of eyewear  to the Lion's Club in honor of National Eye Month. These glasses are then repaired and distributed in the US and around the world to those in need. The collection box is located near the WHAM food donation bin.

Please visit the following sites to stay up to date on the activities and on-goings of the ministries we support as they continue their vital missions to help those in need.
