"Show me your ways, O Lord; teach me your paths." (Psalm 25:4)


At Ascension, we believe that path is to love with the heart of Christ, to think with the mind of Christ, and to act as the body of Christ in the communities to which we are called: our families, our Church family, our Diocese, our community and beyond.  One of the primary ways we live out our mission is through outreach.  We maintain healthy and active partnerships with many charitable organizations at the local, regional, and global levels.  Below you will find more information about some of the organizations we support and how we work with them to be the hands of Christ in the world.  Click on any organization's name to be taken to their website.  Links will open in a new window.  If you are interested in learning more about our Outreach Ministry, please contact The Rev. Deacon Pat Jones or use the contact form on our website.


The Outreach Committee is comprised of volunteers who are members of the Episcopal Church of the Ascension.  The committee meets regularly to discuss the many opportunities to help those in need.  Ascension is blessed to be in a position to provide financial support to many of the agencies below, made possible by an endowment provided to the church, from which disbursements are made several times a year.  The committee then meets to review submitted requests for funding.


If you are a representative from a charitable organization and would like to submit a request for funding, please follow the link below to our request form.  After completing the form, mail it to our office at 726 1st Avenue NW, Hickory, NC  28601.  You may also fax it to us at 828-328-4759.
