Through Holy Baptism, we are reborn and claimed as children of God, and freed from sin and death. We believe people of any age can be baptized, but when a child is baptized, we ask parents to make promises on their child's behalf. Although you do not need to be a member of Ascension to be baptized, we believe you should be part of a faith community. Please contact Pastor Chris Honig if you have any questions concerning baptism.
We think of our church as a place of welcome where even our youngest worshippers are loved and included. Our Pastor leads an interactive children's sermon each week, which helps young children connect the Gospel lesson to their lives. Children also regularly participate in worship through song and special programs. Worship is a learned skill, and can seem long for little ones, so children of age 3-10 can go to Lions Den during the adult sermon. Lions Den gathers downstairs after the children's sermon for activities and crafts. Infants and toddlers are welcome in our worship space with their families, or they can visit our nursery, where loving members will look after them.
We believe that Jesus Christ comes to us both in body and spirit during Holy Communion, giving us much needed nourishment for the Christian journey. For this reason, it is our custom at Ascension to participate in Holy Communion every week. We practice open communion which means that anyone is welcome to participate regardless of denomination or background. That's because our communion table is set by Jesus, who, on the cross, opened His arms to all. If you have any questions about communion or about first communion, please contact Pastor Chris Honig.
We enjoy weekly Communion, Gospel-centered sermons and the integration of traditional & contemporary worship
Worship services are at 10am from Labor Day to Memorial Day and at 9am throughout the summer (Memorial Day through Labor Day).
