Through Instagram and Facebook and this website, we look to draw young adults to the Gospel message. Through these programs below, young adults will flourish in community and fellowship through the Holy Spirit.

This group has an important tie to the papal encyclical Laudato Si, however our direction is unique. This is a set or outings where we can discover God’s beauty in our local community. With a focus on the local church, the local agriculture, local businesses, and local charities, we will grow in faith and fellowship and gain a greater knowledge and appreciation of our common home. There are plans for 3 neighborhood markets in our parking lot in the summer of 2023.

GYLD brings Beauty and Truth to our community through the many creative gifts that God gave to its people at Church of the Ascension. We support each other in our own artistic endeavors and also align our efforts to bring an impact to our local culture and church. All are welcome so bring someone. Please check out our next Reel Deal Film Club where we take in a quality flick with some popcorn and then discuss our thoughts and implications with our faith.
