Are you searching for a place to belong, an authentically inclusive community? 


Ascension & Holy Trinity Episcopal Church takes loving God and loving our neighbor seriously. 

We believe God loves all, including our LGBTQ+ family. 

We are part of God’s Beloved Community and are doing our own work to put an end to systemic racism. 

We know that many suffer from addiction and that recovery occurs through belief in a power greater than ourselves and through helping one another.  


Ascension & Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, a faith community where all are welcome because all belong!

Updated Guidelines for In-Person Worship

As of September 12, 2021

Ascension & Holy Trinity’s Vestry is thrilled to incorporate new ways of gathering together for in-person worship per CDC, Statewide, and Diocesan Guidelines.

If you or your family members are sick or unable to adhere to the recommendations we have established, we invite you to join us online for our live-streamed service.

What to Expect at our In-Church Worship Services:

  • Indoors, face masks are required by all (according to the Diocese mandate). Masks are available at the back of the church.

  • Holy Communion will be administered at the altar rail and at the base of the chancel steps. Communion will be the consecrated bread only. We ask those receiving at the altar rail to distance themselves.

  • The offering plates will be passed through the pews. And the offering, both offering collection and the elements for Holy Eucharist, will be processed to the altar rail to the acolyte.

  • The Gospel Procession will be into the middle of the aisle, once again, connecting the importance of Jesus coming into our midst.

  • Fellowship Hour, cookouts, and other eating events have reconvened inside and outside of the building.
