Ushers are asked to be at the church one-half hour prior to service time.  Thank you.   

Please express your thanks to these volunteers
whose service helps us all worship well!       
      
*Attention Volunteer Greeters:  The Worship and Music Committee is so grateful to have your smiling, welcoming faces greeting folks as they enter Ascension.  In an effort to improve follow-up with visitors, we ask you to invite them to sign the guest book in the narthex so that a follow-up card can be sent.  Thank you.
