Cleanup Crew Signup
Holy Ascension is beginning a Cleanup Crew and are looking for volunteers to help clean up after coffee hour. The crews would rotate and would be responsible for helping clean off tables, sweeping, tidying the kitchen, as well as shutting down and putting toys away in the nursery. This would be a wonderful opportunity to help serve one another! If you have any questions or would like to sign up to be on the rotation please contact Candace Bowling at 918-407-6188.
Men's Monastery Trip
The men's monastery trip will be happening next week from October 11-15. During this time Fr. Kosmas will have little to no cell-phone service and no access to the internet. If there is a pastoral emergency that requires immediate attention please contact Fr. John Salem from St. Elijah's in Oklahoma City at (405) 410-9399.
The Antiochian Archdiocese wants our Input in New Survey!
The Antiochian Archdiocese has developed numerous surveys to gather input from all the faithful in the Archdiocese to help structure its youth and young adult efforts moving forward. The Antiochian Archdiocese has retained the services of a professional evaluator for the creation of these surveys. The data collected from these surveys will only be available to the evaluator and are thus completely confidential. The evaluator will create a report for His Eminence, Metropolitan Joseph, and the Archdiocesan Board of Trustees to inform our strategic planning efforts in regards to this campaign.

Surveys are specific to various roles in the church: Parents, Teens, Young Adults, Church School Teacher, Youth Worker, or Clergy. Please click on the survey link that best describes your role.

Adult Class: The Religion of the Apostles and the Apostolic Fathers
Since the Orthodox Church traces its lineage back to apostolic times, a proper understanding of the worldview that surrounded the apostles and their immediate successors is integral to understanding the Orthodox Church both then and now. This class will utilize both Fr. Stephen DeYoung’s new book The Religion of the Apostles as well as the writings of the Apostolic Fathers to put us into the mindset of early Christians as they navigate the theology and culture of first and second century Christendom. So that no one has to miss out, childcare will be provided! Please ask Fr. Kosmas for more details. Click here to register!
