Bless The Beasts!

Adult Formation

Please join us for five Sundays in September and October from 9:15-10:00am as we explore the Christian Faith as understood in the Episcopal Church. This is a great opportunity to go deeper into our knowledge and love of God as we prepare to celebrate the All Saints Day on November 1st with Baptism and Holy Eucharist. All are encouraged to participate. If you are unable to attend the class, you are invited to read the book at the same time and email Fr. Vincent Black your thoughts and questions (

  • 10/11  The Sacraments (Book Section 5)
  • 10/18   Episcopal Beliefs (Book Section 1)

Nursery and Sunday School

The Church of the Ascension is happy to offer a Nursery for babies and toddlers as well as a Children’s Service, for children who aren’t quite ready to join the adult celebration. Our trained nursery leaders are here for your child(ren), so you can reflect, reconnect, and recharge. In our Children’s Service, kids can expect to be entertained with projects, crafts, and stories that illustrate God’s love. The class also helps to prepare the children to join their parents and the greater church family during the main service. Kids start with their families and are escorted to class after the welcome message, returning during the exchange of peace.

Church of the Ascension adheres the guidelines outlined in Safeguarding God’s Children, which includes more than one adult attending to children at all times. Parents are always welcome to join or observe either group at any time.


All are welcome to find a spiritual home at the Church at Ascension. We are community that encourages questions, seeks answers, and strives to use Jesus’s example in our daily lives.

We’re family friendly and offer the opportunity to find peace, reflect on our spirituality, and experience God’s never ending love, compassion, and grace.

For those wishing to use their time and talents to make the world a brighter place, Church of the Ascension has many active Community Outreach programs.

Join us to begin or renew a relationship with God.
