Vacation bible school

Mark your calendars for VBS!

The Episcopal Church of the Ascension's VBS will take place June 19-23 from 5:00-7:30 pm at the church and is free to participants! We welcome children from the community to join us! Each day students will get a healthy home cooked meal, learn about a story from the bible that coincides with the theme, participate in activities in music, arts/crafts, science, and recreations/games. Our theme this year is "Surf Shack."

Surf shack vbs needs your help!

As we gear up for an amazing VBS next month, we are in need of 2 things:

1.  Sign up to make a dish or donate food for dinner during the week.  The sign-up sheet is located in the Parish Hall.

2.  Donations of travel size toiletry items for mission bags to be donated to those in need through The Red Door Food Pantry.

Please consider donating in whatever capacity you are led.  We appreciate all the help our parish gives to ensure a successful VBS experience.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and commitment to our children!

Maxine Richards and Winnie McGruder Memorial

The Healing Altar/Oblation Table was built in Memory of Maxine Richards.  Altar Guild is ordering the liturgically correct Credence Cloth for this Altar in honor of Maxine and Winnie McGruder.  Winnie loved to wash and iron the linens used at each service.  It is fitting that this project is dedicated to both these Altar Guild Members.  If you would like to donate, write your check to The Episcopal Church of Ascension and note for Altar Guild Credence Cloth in Memory of Winnie McGruder.
