Earlier this spring, the Vestry of Church of the Ascension met to identify and begin to implement key initiatives for the coming year. While there is energy and excitement around nearly all of our ministries, the top three priorities are: (1) establishing a Building Use Committee and shepherding it to come up with a plan for the use of our building; (2) increasing stewardship; and (3) implementing a strategy for identifying and developing new leadership within the parish. As we have begun to tackle those initiatives and as other Ascension committees have shared their goals, we have realized the need to gather and update information about who we are as the beloved community of Ascension. So that we can better move forward with our key ministry initiatives and other goals, I hope that you will share the information requested below.
We are seeking the following information about each person at Ascension – yes, even newborns! Parents, please fill out a form for each of your children as well as yourselves. The information will be used to help nurture our life together. It will also be used only for analytical purposes and will not be shared.
Thank you so much for taking the time provide this information. Please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.
I am so grateful to each of you for all that you do to make Ascension the faithful community that it is.
Weezie Blanchard, Rector
