Ascension Worship

On the Sunday before Pentecost, we celebrate Christ's Ascension. For us, the most traditional Ascension song is Crown Him with Many Crowns, which is our first hymn. Roz Kvet is our presiding elder today, and while our organist is on vacation for nearly a month, we're happy to welcome Gretchen Bryan as her substitute.
