STAYING CONNECTED DURING A PANDEMIC

This page offers the latest information about how we are staying connected as the COVID-19 pandemic keeps us physically distant.

During this time, our building will be fully closed for sanitation and for your protection. Sunday morning worship will be streamed from the building by clergy, but the congregation will be gathering digitally. Here are some of the ways to connect with us at this time.

Online Giving 
The church is still functioning during this time. Use the online giving portal to set up a profile, establish recurring pledge payments, or to donate one time to any of the funds or projects. If you have any questions, please email accounting@knoxvilleacension.org .

Pastoral Care
We are still offering pastoral care for our parishioners through an old-fashioned phone tree, coordinated by Fr. Christopher Hogin. 
To contact our shepherds, email shepherds@knoxvilleascension.org .
