Prayer Partners Wanted! During the season of Lent, we will partner volunteers with a young person from our Parish. The youth will be informed that someone in the parish is praying for them. Volunteers will receive a packet by Ash Wednesday (2/14) and will pray for their young person anonymously throughout the season of Lent. On Sunday, April 14, they will meet their prayer partner at breakfast (9 am). Those who partner with a confirmand will remain with them throughout the confirmation process. The goal is to give our young parishioners connections at church; someone to encourage them and seek them out on Sundays. If you would like to participate, please email Jerae.


Outreach Opportunity Episcopal Church of the Ascension in Seneca is partnering with several local churches to package meals for RISE Against Hunger on Sat, Feb 3 at College Street Baptist Church in Walhalla (401 College St.). 100 volunteers are needed to make this a success. Please consider volunteering from 10 am-12 pm to help assemble and package meals. If you have the interest and capability to lift heavy boxes, your help from 8:30 am-10 am for set up and/or from 12:00 pm-1:00 pm for cleanup would be appreciated. Click here to sign up. You may also email Donna Pankratz or call 864-719-0321.
