THE EPISCOPAL CHURCH

OF THE ASCENSION

Welcome to Ascension, Hickory.

We strive 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. We are so glad you are here.
