Ascension Walker Program Volunteer Opportunities

Our Walker Program provides our members and our community with a forum for physical exercise through walking and fellowship. Ascension members serve as hosts for the program; which is open weekdays from 7 am to 10 am (not including holidays or when there is inclement weather). If you are interested in serving as a host, a host substitute, and/or would like more information please feel free to reach out to Charles Green or Pam Rinas.

Keeping Our History Alive

Do you have old or new or anything in between of photos from our church history, functions, programs, fellowships, decorating, etc.? I can scan old photos or download anything digital from a CD/DVD or a flash drive. All photos will be returned to you. The photos will be in a large collage and displayed at our 60th anniversary celebration in November of this year. Please, make sure to put your name on your photos, so I may return them to you. For those of you who have shared your photos with me the last couple of years, I still have them. Any questions, call or text me at 816-289-6842. Please, leave a message if I'm unable to answer. My email address is Thank you - Linda Kueck

Graduation Time!

We would like to recognize those graduates. Let the church office know who is graduating and the school they will be graduating from.

How to Give to Ascension

If you are able to continue giving, you have several options.

  • Mail your check to the church (put it inside your church envelope then into a mailing envelope)

  • Use your own bank’s online banking to have a check mailed to church

  • Participate in our electronic giving program, which requires a bit of setup. To use this third option, contact Kathy Jenkins for details.

Dorcas Circle invites the congregation to participate in collecting mites for missions by dropping their mites in the Mite Box in the narthex on the fourth Sunday of the month. Individual Mite Boxes are available in the Narthex or you can create your own.
