Autumn 2015


Dear Family and Friends of the Ascension,


The Harvest is in, so many are rushing with the daily tasks as we move forward into this busy season, and prepare for Advent and Christmas, knowing that winter is around the corner. At this time I find myself reflecting on the six areas of ministry that we have at the parish. In all this I give thanks for the blessings of life in the parish after ten years.



In worship, we have a new organ, we are gathering to discuss the worship space and how the sanctuary will better reflect who we are as the people of God. This next few months we will dream of how and what will change.


Pastoral Care

In pastoral care, we give thanks for those who have died, and remember them in prayer at the annual All Souls service, November 2, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. We continue to offer visitation and response to people in need.



The parish continues to support and uphold the new diocesan initiative Home Again Furniture Bank as it strives to enable families to receive items that are needed for them to live with dignity. We give God thanks for this vital work.



We have partnered with the Parish of the Good Shepherd to provide adult education through the Pilgrim Bible Study. Together we are exploring our faith in new and exciting ways! Godly Play and Confirmation training continue to develop. For this we give thanks.



There is no doubt that this parish is continuing to live out its ministry beyond the parish walls. Many times I encounter others and they speak of the excellent work and witness that various groups share, including ACW, Choirs, MSC, Parish Network Visitors, and Vacation Bible School to mention a few. We are known and celebrated for how we show our faith in our actions!



There are many exciting ways in which people share fellowship at the Ascension. Of late, this area gives me the most concern. We have fewer people attending worship, more people disengaged with the life of the parish. We see families less and less as schedules get filled.  We need to find ways to come to worship, celebrate who we are, and engage each other to show and see we care.


God Bless,
