Help Provide School Supplies and Backpacks for Children in Need
Ascension is collecting supplies and financial donations to provide backpacks for students (kindergarten through 5thÂ grade) at Summit Hall E. S. in Gaithersburg as part of the Linkages to Learning Program.Â The purpose of this program is to improve the well-being of children and their families through collaborative delivery of school based services that address social, economic, health and emotional issues that interfere with the academic success of the child. The lists of supplies are available in the narthex. You are not obligated to provide all of the supplies on the list. All donations are welcome. If you would like to make a financial donation, please make the check payable to the church and write â€śFor Backpacksâ€ť on the memo line.Â Please put the check in the plateÂ on Sunday. Â Please put the supplies in Room 2Â OnÂ Sunday, August 26, the backpacks will be assembled in RoomÂ 2Â following theÂ 10 amÂ service. All help will be appreciated. We can work together while we visit and get to know each other.Â Thank you in advance for your support of this project.

New to Ascension?
The Episcopal Church of the Ascension is a progressive, multicultural Christian community in metropolitan D.C. with a passion for service, diverse worship, and life long spiritual formation.
We believe that God continues to be revealed in all cultures in every era. We treasure the opportunities for mutual evangelism we encounter in our church and in our world.
Our worship is a celebration of Godâ€™s abiding love. We are a community of unconditional welcome, inviting anyone to our worship community. We endeavor to speak newcomersâ€™ languages and meet them in the cultures of their homes.
Christianity means action. We see a fundamental connection between the freely given life of Christ and the giving of our lives in the service of others.
The Christian journey is a lifelong pursuit. We have a tradition of living a life in Christ by enriching our understanding through study, and converting our hearts through shared spiritual practice. â€“ Seamus Welsh
