ANNOUNCEMENTS

STAY INFORMED:

Thanks for stopping by to see what's happening at Ascension.  We invite you to stop back often.  We'll be updating information as it becomes available.

We’re still here!  Although we may not be physically in our offices, we all are checking e-mails and voicemails on a regular basis.  

IF YOU NEED ANYTHING, please don’t hesitate to call or email Pastor Lori or Susie Brekke, Member Connections.  We have a list of folks who have volunteered to drop of supplies to any member who has a need.  These folks want to help!

IMPORTANT THINGS TO KNOW

IMPORTANT: There is so much happening at Ascension, we couldn't fit it all on our announcement page.  Please be sure to read our January Tidings newsletter for all the details!!
 

ANNUAL MEETING
The annual congregational meeting will be on Sunday, January 31 at 10:00 a.m.  We, like many other congregations, will be conducting our annual meeting this year via Zoom (a video conferencing platform).  If you need assistance installing or using Zoom on your device (cell phone, tablet, or computer), please contact Valerie in the church office (336-3561 ext 101) and she will help you connect with a tech support volunteer.  The annual report will be made available in digital form and shared with members via email by January 21.  If you need a printed copy of the report please contact Valerie.  

ADULT EDUCATION OPPORTUNITIES

Sunday Adult Bible Study – January 17 at 9:00  a.m. 
We continue to deepen our understanding and skills at personal Bible study.  Knowing how to mine the riches of individual Bible study is so important for keeping spiritually healthy.  We schedule our Sunday Adult Bible Studies on those Sundays in which there is no outdoor worship or drive-up communion, but January 31 is when our Ascension Annual Meeting is being held, so there is also a time conflict for that Sunday.

Love Your Neighbor - Learning and Growing Together” will meet on 
Wednesday, January 13 at 7:00 p.m. 
This will be an opportunity to share thoughts about the programs we held this past fall, as well as to look forward together to the future. Whether you attended one or all of our programs (topics: demographics of Brown County, homelessness, immigration), we invite you to join us for a conversation about future topics for us to explore together.   The conversation will take place via Zoom, and you can register for this discussion via the following link:  https://forms.gle/7RzPD8zyNGkUbMCf6
