Our Mission: To be a loving community in relationship to God, serving Christ and respecting the dignity of every human being.
Church of the Ascension, which sits contentedly on the corner of Second Avenue and West Street in Parkesburg, lovely as it is, is only a well-ordered pile of stone.
It is not the church. The church is created, its body fed, nourished, and strengthened each time people gather for Worship, Education, Meetings, Activities and Fun.
Thus sustained and renewed, the “church” returns to the larger community as Christ’s body here on earth, with eyes able to see with compassion, feet upon which to go about doing good, and hands capable of holding, healing, and blessing.
This rhythm of receiving, of being loved without condition, and of giving to the world, one person at a time, is the rhythm of life and is the heartbeat of Ascension.
We would love for you to join us...for a service or a lifetime!!!
