The Ascension Summer Book Group will meet on Monday, July 15, and Tuesday July 23. All are invited to read and discuss Inspired: Slaying Giants, Walking on Water, and Loving the Bible Again, by Rachel Held Evans. This is a book about telling and inhabiting stories – bible stories, our own stories of faith, doubt, and wrestling for a blessing. RHE, as she is affectionately known, died earlier this year from complications of the flu at the age of 37. Her writings about her own journey of faith have been a companion, challenge and inspiration to many readers, and hopefully will be engaging for us as well. Mother Liz will lead the conversation, and we’ll meet in the Rear Parlor after the 6:00 evening Eucharist (about 6:45). The book is readily available from Amazon and elsewhere. Please read chapters 3 & 4 for this Monday.
Get To Know Us
Ascension is a welcoming, diverse, and inclusive community of people who gather to proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ, to give praise and thanks to God through the beauty of worship, and to love and serve God and our neighbors.
Regular Worship Schedule
Starting in November, "socially distanced" Eucharist services will be held on Wednesdays at 6 p.m. Due to limited seating and contact tracing requirements, pews must be reserved in advance. During the COVID-19 pandemic, most other public services and programs at the Church of the Ascension are taking place online until further notice. Contact the parish office to learn how to attend our online services via Zoom.
We'd like to hear from you!
