Breezy Summer Sundays 2017



Blessing of the Backpacks
Sunday, August 6, 10:00 am service

Sharpen your pencils, pack your bags, school is almost here! Kids (and adults) bring your backpacks to the 10:00 am service to have them blessed before heading back to school.

Celebrating Chelsea Krahulik: The Coffee Hour after the 10:00 am service will be dedicated to celebrating Chelsea Krahulik’s ministry at Ascension. We will miss you, Chelsea!

“Choose Some Shoes” Along with Blessing of the Backpacks, the Children’s Ministry is holding a shoe drive for the kids at White Oak School in Campbell County. Every year, in this poverty stricken area, children come to school with shoes that are too big, too small, or inappropriate for the season. The principal would love to have a small “shoe shop” and be able to tell a child, “choose some shoes.” Please consider buying a pair of closed toed shoes, any size for kids in grades K-8, male or female. A collection barrel will be available in the Foyer. If you have any questions, email Megan Alden at
