Ascension Church

Packing up and moving out -- sort of

The Ascension School building is getting a major update this summer thanks to generous donors to the Friends of Ascension Capital Campaign. However, every single item needs to packed and removed from the building before the repair and renovation work can begin. Crews have been hired to load boxes on to trucks, but teachers and staff need help packing!


WHEN: Thursday and Friday, June 2-3. Come for the day or just a few hours
WHAT: NO HEAVY LIFTING! Volunteers will work with teachers and others to box up all items in each room of the building.


Please contact Margaret Conroy, 612 424-6209, to sign up or get more information.

Construction project rolling along

Both additions that were put on the church in the years since it was built have been removed, and the basement of the church has a new concrete floor.  The South entrance is beginning to take shape, with the main beam going up on Monday morning.  Read more and see photos.
