Sunday Christian Formation

The aim of Adult Christian Education at Ascension is about learning through relationships. All Sunday School classes are open to everyone! It is not necessary to have read the books being studied as all groups present the material in such a manner that everyone can participate. No prior reading or preparation is required! For more information on these Sunday Adult Education groups, or to pass along comments, please contact The Rev. Christopher Hogin, or call the church office at 865-588-0589.

A relaxing and loving time of what Jesus referred to as “prayer in secret”.  We begin with twenty minutes of silent prayer, letting God come into our hearts, followed by discussion and contemplation from read-aloud portions of the book Tears of An Innocent God by Elias Marechal.
