The family of the Church of the Ascension, United Church of Christ, strive for love, justice, and equality for all of God's children. We believe that in the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. In time God placed creatures on the earth, from dinosaurs to bugs, culminating in the wondrous variety of the world's people. We believe that a faithful reading of Scripture reveals that people were

not simply of one sort, but of many sorts. As an Open-and-Affirming congregation, we welcome those of every gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, just as we welcome into our family of faith people of every ability, age, race, nationality, economic and social status, faith background, marital standing and family structure. Weekly worship begins at 11:00 AM.
