Gluten-free Coffee Hour Reminder
So that we continue offering gluten-free options during coffee hour, please refrain from taking gluten-free food if you do not have a gluten allergy or sensitivity. The gluten free portions are made specifically with those who cannot eat gluten in mind. Moreover, please refrain from mixing the gluten free and regular serving utensils as this contaminates the gluten-free food.
Be on the lookout for membership and giving intention forms later this week!

Giving Opportunity! - Benevolence Fund
Over the past few months, Holy Ascension has been given opportunities to help those in Norman and our church community who are struggling with serious and unexpected financial hardship. This being said, our benevolence fund is running low and we need your help to refill it. Please consider donating to the benevolence fund today. You can give by:

  • Mailing a check payable to "Holy Ascension" (with "Benevolence" on the memo line) to the church at 3350 12th Ave NE, Norman, OK 73071.
  • Making a donation on our website—make sure to note that it is for "Benevolence." Use this link to find our Donation page.
  • Drop an offering envelope labeled "Benevolence" into the donations box in the Narthex at our church.

Thank you for your generosity!
