Stewardship Team

Led by Sid Wise, focuses on the contribution and use of time, talent, and treasures within our church and ministries. This includes the annual stewardship campaign and oversight of endowment and memorial funds.

“Now there are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit; and there are varieties of service, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but it is the same God who empowers them all in everyone. To each is given the manifestation of the Spirit for the common good. For to one is given through the Spirit the utterance of wisdom, and to another the utterance of knowledge according to the same Spirit, to another faith by the same Spirit, to another gifts of healing by the one Spirit, to another the working of miracles, to another prophecy, to another the ability to distinguish between spirits, to another various kinds of tongues, to another the interpretation of tongues. All these are empowered by one and the same Spirit, who apportions to each one individually as he wills.”

- Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians, 12:4-1

As Paul tells us, there are many gifts with which our Heavenly Father has endowed us. Each of these divine gifts is equally important to fulfilling the mission of the church. Every year during our stewardship campaign, we ask our members to complete a spiritual gifts survey. The survey is designed to help you identify your God-given spiritual gifts and to help your church leadership know upon whom we can call as various mission needs arise. In the meantime, if you have not already done so, please prayerfully consider volunteering your time and talents to one of the many ministry opportunities Ascension offers.

Thanks to the generosity of our members during our completed Capital Campaign, we were able to complete much needed renovations to our kitchen and classrooms, resurface the parking lot, and install a handicap access door. There are a number of projects yet to be completed, including necessary roof repairs. Your continued support to our efforts will be greatly appreciated.
