WE'RE SO GLAD YOU'RE HERE!
Ascension’s Food Pantry is open! Our regular hours are 10:00 to 11:30 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Food Pantry: Our Food Pantry Team shops for food to stock the Food Pantry at our local Food Bank— the money you donate goes further there than at our local supermarkets. But, just as shortages have been showing up at the supermarket, they are also showing up at the Food Bank. A couple of weeks ago, it was peanut butter, last week it was boxes of cereal. If you could help out our Food Pantry by donating boxes of cereal this week, that would be great! Although many of us think of cereal for kids, adults love it too! You could donate a box or two of your favorite cereal and help the Food Pantry this week! The donations can also be placed in the blue barrel in the Narthex.

We are very thankful to the Ascension members who have already volunteered during the regular season of NEST. This year NEST is extending the program through the end of April. Volunteers are needed to help with welcoming guests, serving meals, clean up chores and overnight monitoring. The shifts run 5-8 am, 6-9 pm and the overnight is 9-6. If you think this type of service might be for you, please check out the signup page as it gives more specific information. .https://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0444aaa62ca7f58-nest
