Welcome to

Be the Blessing

When God blesses us, He calls us to share that blessing with others—to be the blessing ourselves!  Ascension is up to something exciting this year, in fact, we’ve set aside substantial funds for our members to be the blessing.  HERE is the story of how it came together and why it matters so much.

At our Early Childhood Center, putting together a gift of support for teachers at Westlake High School after the tragic death of a student there.

To Apply:

Step 1: Identify a need for which you’d like to request funds.
Step 2: If appropriate, enlist others who might help you fill that need in ministry.
Step 3: Fill out and submit the Grant Request Form — ONLINE, below, or download and fill in this print version and send it to the Be the Blessing Grant Committee c/o Ascension.
Step 4: Use the grant money and engage in the ministry you’ve identified.
Step 5: Within two weeks of engaging in that ministry fill out and submit the Feedback Form — ONLINE, below, or download and fill in this print version and send it — along with any photos or video you have taken of the activity.
Step 6: CONGRATULATIONS! You’re about to be the blessing.
