Ascension News and Comments

Worship with us in the season of Lent
Sunday, February 14, 2016 at 8:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.
These forty days called Lent are like no other. It is our opportune time to return to the God who rescues; to receive the gifts of God’s grace; to believe with the heart and confess with the mouth the wonder of God’s love in Jesus; and to resist temptation at every turn. This is no small pilgrimage on which we have just embarked. It is a struggle Jesus knew. It is a struggle Jesus shares. The nearness of the Lord, in bread and wine, water and word, will uphold and sustain us.
 
Readings
Deuteronomy 26:1-11
Psalm 91:1-2, 9-16
Romans 10:8b-13
Luke 4:1-13

Spring Worship Schedule

At 8:30 AM we gather for the Garden Service, an abbreviated celebration of Holy Communion in our beautiful garden. Dress warm, because we'll be outside unless it's raining! The 8:30 AM Garden Service will continue weekly through Easter Sunday. Our 10:00 AM service continues as usual.

February 10 is Ash Wednesday this year. Pastor Ryan and  Deacon Jayne will be distributing ashes again down at the Scottsdale Waterfront during and around the lunch hour. Come visit us if you'd like! Ascension's sanctuary service on Ash Wednesday is at 7:00 PM. This service is a non-Communion service, and includes the receiving of ashes on the forehead.

Taliesin Choir takes part in worship Sunday, 4/12/15
We enjoyed hearing the Taliesin Choir who performed the anthem "Lord, Listen to Your Children" during worship on Sunday, April 12.  The choir was directed by Ascension member Effi Casey. Joining the Taliesin Choir were some of our very own members of Ascension choir.

Organ Renovation Project


Phase I of the organ restoration is progressing on schedule. This phase addresses the issues of the organ console and restoration of the windchests, reservoirs and pipework.  The previous interior pneumatic mechanisms of the console have been replaced with solid state components, bringing the organ console to present day acceptable standards. Our existing keyboards of valuable English Ivory have been retained in the new solid state console. Phase I will also add 32’ digital extensions to the pedal division, providing a deep, rich sound; MIDI in and out; record and playback capability; and 99 levels of combination action memory. Pipes and windchests in all divisions have been cleaned and refurbished. While the pipes were out of the chambers for cleaning, new lighting was installed in both pipe chamber and the damaged drywall from previous water leaks was repaired. Approximately 95% of the restoration is complete. Once the gallery organ is completed work will begin on installation of the antiphonal organ in the east balcony.
