BREAD BREAKERS IS BACK!!!!!!
Do you want to get to know other adults in your Ascension family?  
JOIN BREAD BREAKERS!!!

WHAT IS BREAD BREAKERS?

  • A fellowship opportunity for adults (18 years and over).
  • Participants will be placed in groups of 6 or 7 adult.
  • Groups are a mix of couples and singles.
  • Each group will meet 4 times in the following year in each other’s homes or at a restaurant for dinner.  (This is not a gourmet cooking club).
  • Each group will plan their own dates, times and locations.
  • Groups can decide amongst themselves if children can be included.

The focus is not on the food but on getting to know each other.  By meeting 4 times with the same small group, you will begin to really get to know the others and enjoy seeing the folks on Sunday mornings. Questions?  Contact Pastor Lori.
