Our Touch A Heart Ministries take “caring” to another level. The collection of ministries that make up Touch A Heart address the immediate physical and spiritual needs of people and is staffed by volunteers. Some of the ministries are:

  • Baptismal Baby Blanket Ministry – provides beautifully knitted baby blankets for Ascension members and friends whose babies are being baptized at Ascension. The knitter prays for the designated recipient while knitting the blanket.
  • Care Package Ministry – supports college students who are away from home for extended periods of time. The intent is to let these individuals know through letters, cards, and a package how important they are to the Ascension family and that they are not forgotten.
  • Crosses for Christ Ministry – a craft-based ministry, which brings comfort to those suffering a loss or a serious illness. It is also a great way to make Ascension’s presence felt in the entire community. Pray for healing, wisdom, peace and salvation for those who receive the crosses.
  • Meal Program Ministry –  offers a prepared meal to families and individuals who may be temporarily fragmented due to the arrival of a new baby, a death, a hospital stay or someone who just needs a meal to carry them through the day.
  • Prayer Shawls Ministry – knits and presents shawls to people with illnesses, deep losses, spiritual decline, and other personal concerns. The knitter prays for the individual during the making of the shawl and then it is presented in prayer to the person. This is a deeply moving and gentle embrace of the power of prayer and caring.
  • Spiritual Care Ministry – A way to provide spiritual care to our hospitalized, rehabilitating, and homebound members. New bags will be given by our Pastoral Assistants to provide this spiritual enrichment.
