Sunday

With multiple services on Sundays, we are able to provide a variety of experiences in worship.
Summer Worship June 14 through September 6, 2015
  • 8:00 am - A spoken, meditative Eucharist in the Stone Church. Prayers and annointing for healing are offered on the second Sunday of each month.
  • 10:00 am - Holy Eucharist, held in the Holy Cross Hall. It is liturgical, but less formal in feel. Music is a mixture of traditional and contempory styles and includes offerings from the Ascension Choir, and our volunteer muscians.

September through May schedule:
  • 8:00 am – A spoken, meditative Eucharist in the original Stone Church. Prayers and anointing for healing are offered on the second Sunday of each month.
  • 9:00 am – Our largest service of Holy Eucharist, held in the Holy Cross Hall. It is liturgical, but less formal in feel. Music is a mixture of traditional and contemporary styles and lead by the Ascend Choir. It also includes offering from the Handbell Choir,  and our volunteer musicians.
  • 11:15 am – A more formal service of Holy Eucharist with traditional music held in the original Stone Church.  On the second Sunday of every month prayers and annointing for healing are offerered. This service is a High Sung service on Principal Feasts, such as Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost. 

Wednesday

Every Wednesday there is a service of Holy Communion in the Chapel of the Holy Family (a.k.a. the Children's Chapel) at 10:00 am. Any feast days that fall during a given week are observed at that service. Prayers and anointing for healing are offered on the last Wednesday of each month. The Chapel is located in the Parish House complex.
 

 

Music

We believe strongly that good music, when provided, is an integral part of spirit-filled worship. We also believe that our music ministry should draw from the best which has been composed over the whole history of the Church. We are blessed to have many fine volunteer musicians under the direction of our Director of Music Ministries; We have the Ascension Choir which meets September - May at 8:00 pm Wednesday evenings for rehearsals; The Handbell Choir under the direction of Lynn Lyon-Vaiden which meets September - May at 6:40 pm Wednesday evenings for rehearsals, (Handbell Choir).
 
If you have a musical talent that you would like to share - voice, guitar, piano, recorder, drums, or any other musical instruments please call the Church office.


Special services  

For the annual Bishop's Visitation and other special events, it is our custom to only have one later service at 10:00 am.  We encourage everyone, especially visitors, to consult the home page before coming.
 

 

Summer  

During the summer, our 8:00 am service continues, but there is one later service at 10:00 am. Musical style is a blend of traditional and contemporary.
