NEW COMMUNITY OUTREACH OPPPORTUNITY!! - Plarn Mats for the Homeless
For over a year Sherry Schneider and Diane Robishaw have been making plarn (plastic yarn) sleeping mats for the homeless in our community.  The time it takes to make these 6 ft x 3 ft mats is great, but the need in our community is even greater. 

After sharing the need, impact and plan for making and distributing plarn sleeping mats to the homeless in our community with Ascension’s Christian Service Mission Team, the team approved for Sherry and Diane to lead this outreach ministry on behalf of Ascension.  

If you would like to learn more about the “Plarn Sleeping Mats for the Homeless” outreach opportunity and how you can be involved, please contact the church office.  The first learning and making plarn mats gathering is planned for September 23 at 9:30 a.m. 

SUNDAY SCHOOL 2021-2022!!!
Our Children’s Ministry Mission Team and staff have worked hard to create a new, fun, educational and meaningful way to share the message of Jesus Christ with the children in our Ascension family.

  • Our Ascension kids will Gather together with kids their own age in a classroom setting.
  • They’ll Open the Bible and Activate their Faith as they explore Bible lessons and begin to compare what they learn to their own life.
  • The adult volunteers will get to know the kids in their classroom as they learn and grow in their faith by sharing biblical teachings from a new, easy to follow curriculum. 

All children in 4k through 5th grade are invited to attend!  To register please visit: https://forms.gle/4TuiZb4S6a1pzUbu8 or stop by the Welcome Desk to pick up a registration form. 

PARENTS & MEMBERS:
Sunday School is entirely dependent on volunteers. WE CAN’T MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIVES OF ASCENSION’S KIDS WITHOUT YOUR HELP!  This year there are lots of opportunities that allow you to engage with the kids on a short term, long term, team, or individual basis!  

If you have kids in the program or have an interest in impacting the spiritual lives of children in your Ascension family, we’d love to hear from you. We have created a simple online form to share how you’d like to volunteer. 
Visit: https://forms.gle/grVsYkajtJH7JeVp6  or pick up an interest form at the Welcome Desk.  You can also contact Children’s Ministry Mission Team co-leaders, Hanna Engebretson, or call the church office.
