New Coffee Hour Format!

Beginning this Sunday, the hospitality committee will be expanding its coffee hour ministry. We want to ensure that this vital ministry continues to meet the growing needs of our parish, providing a place for parishioners to fellowship and guests to feel welcomed into our community.

Our new coffee hour system will organize member parishioners into four groups sorted by last name. Each group will be responsible for providing food in a potluck style and cleaning up the hall once a month. We will begin serving coffee hour using this system on March 5th, and we hope that by working together, we can establish a strong and self-sustaining legacy of hospitality at Holy Ascension for generations to come. The finer details of this new system will be shared in an upcoming email.
