Welcome, and thank you for visiting Church of the Ascension online. We hope that our website highlights the worship, fellowship and service opportunities available. Please feel free to read more about our church on this site, or come in for a visit. We would love to greet you and share with you our love for Jesus Christ and for you, our neighbor.
The Episcopal Church strives to live by the message of Christ, in which there are no outcasts and all are welcome. Walking a middle way between Roman Catholicism and Protestant traditions, we are a sacramental and worship-oriented church that promotes thoughtful debate about what God is calling us to do and be, as followers of Christ.
One of Ascension's chief ministries is to those in need, be it in our neighborhood, city, country, or abroad. The Outreach Ministry partners with many local organizations and charities to help those in need.
Sunday services are held in the main church building. All others are held in the chapel unless otherwise noted.
