Advent and Christmas at Ascension

Sunday, December 2nd is the First Sunday of Advent, and thus, the beginning of our new liturgical year. Please mark your calendars now for the following special services. If you are looking for a new church home, or looking to find the deeper meaning to the season beyond the lights and the gifts, Christmas is an excellent time to visit us. If you are already a part of our church family, consider inviting a friend to one of our services this year.
