Spiritual Growth

Spiritual Growth

Spiritual growth is a journey which includes everything from education to prayer to financial giving.


Christian Education It is all about Jesus

  •  Infant baptism: classes for parents and sponsors
  • Nursery: children up to age 3 receive love and encouragement.
  • Sunday Education: children study God’s word through the bible’s stories.
  • Stepping Stones: Bible distribution, first communion, and confirmation
  • Youth Ministries: JOLT, CRASH, Puppets of Praise, Mime, and mission trips
  • Adult Education: Bible study small groups, Discover classes, special seminars, and life application sermons
  • Ascension Library: Ascension’s Library is a resource that can be used by all of us, of every age, to educate ourselves on many Christian topics. Learn more…


In addition to studying God’s word, we develop a closer relationship to Jesus through prayer. This includes prayer in church and at home, prayer groups, prayer chains, prayer vigils, and making prayer a part of everything we do.

Consider taking another step in faith and join the Prayer Team on the first and third Mondays of the month in the Prayer Room from 5:30-6:30 p.m. as we offer up prayers of praise and thanksgiving and for the needs of our church family and friends, community, nation, and the world. You will not be asked to pray aloud if you do not wish to do so.


Another part of growing spiritually is realizing that everything we have comes from God. This allows us to be more generous with our possessions and frees us to use them for God’s work. Opportunities to serve in this area are many. We have volunteers in the nursery on Sunday mornings, Sunday school tracers, helpers and aides, parents of the day, confirmation leaders and adult assistants, chaperons for trips, leaders and coordinators for adult education, prayer team members, stewardship team members, and many more. You can also make financial contributions to Ascension and specific ministries. Ascension has an Endowment Fund, which you can donate to or request funds from. Visit the Endowment Fund page.
