A Message from Jim & Bill
Hello Ascent Friends,
Ascent moved our services online starting March 15th until further notice in order to help with local health concerns stemming from COVID-19. ALL in-person activities at the church are postponed.
It's essential that organizations like Ascent proactively help reduce the spread of COVID-19 by limiting large public gatherings. A coordinated effort can greatly reduce the risk of our medical networks becoming overwhelmed. We are continuing to offer our services to Boulder County Health, Avista Hospital, and others.
Below, we have listed ways for you to "come to church" while you have to stay at home for an indefinite amount of time. So, get off your couch and sing with Becky, Tyler and the gang, throw bricks at the screen if Bill is preaching, and shower Jim with praise when he's up. We hope you invite your neighbor, co-worker or friend who may not want to come to church but might be open to watching online! We also believe that church should extend beyond Sundays, so don't miss out on the groups you love, be sure to connect with your age-specific groups or CORE Groups.
Most of all, we hope you love people well right now. We hope you continue to be generous. Each one of us is a "city on the hill" that Jesus talked about in Matthew 5. Now more than ever, we need to be a calming influence that brings hope. In a time like this, we must show what the Church of Jesus Christ is made out of. Ascent is committed to doing just that!
We'll be back soon enough. And that's going to be a great day.
- Jim, Bill, and the Ascent Team
