With Open Arms, Hearts and Minds, We Welcome All People to Experience God's Amazing Grace,  Mercy and Love.

  • Worship and Music

    " Sing to the Lord a new song;

        Sing to the Lord, all the earth.

    Sing to the Lord, praise His name;

        proclaim His salvation day after day.

    Declare his glory among the nations,

        His marvelous deeds among all peoples." 

                      Psalm 96:1-3


    At Ascension we live to celebrate God's love in a way that reflects the outpouring of His grace and mercy.  It always is a joy and privilege to express our love for Him and to proclaim His glory through music. During our time together we seek to blend the riches of our traditional Christian musical heritage with the diversity of contemporary musical styles.
