  • Faith Cafe

    SUNDAY | 9 am & 10:30 am


    Faith Cafe meets on Sunday mornings for study and conversation. This relaxed environment is a great place to ask faith questions. New participants are welcome at any time. Faith Cafe will meet over Zoom, please contact Anne Havrilla for meeting information.


    Sweet Surrender

    We enter the church season of Lent on Ash Wednesday and we begin to prepare ourselves to walk with Jesus to the cross. Our Ascend model’s second spiritual posture, “surrender,” is the focus of our Lenten Faith Café class, “Sweet Surrender.”  Through powerful scriptures and stories, we will consider what we need to let go in our lives, that keeps us from a closer relationship with Jesus.  We offer the same class twice each Sunday at 9 am and 10:30 am over Zoom. Contact Anne Havrilla for link information.

  • Meditation Group

    TUESDAY | 8:30 am OR 4:30 pm

    Open to: All


    Meditation is an ancient Christian discipline. It offers all of the benefits that health professionals attribute to other forms of meditation, such as reducing anxiety, managing stress and improving sleep, but it has the added benefit of opening pathways for us to experience the peace of our Lord and Savior, to enter into the presence of the Almighty and to seek and receive guidance from the Holy Spirit.


    In the meetings, we will explore techniques that anyone can learn and can use on their own and we will experience guided meditations that are focused on opening our hearts and minds to God.


    There is no obligation to attend every week because the sessions are designed to be equally beneficial for the occasional participant. The group is offered twice a week to accommodate schedules. You can choose Tuesday, 8:30-9:15 am or Tuesday 4:30-5:15 pm.  For more information or to register, please contact Anne Havrilla.

    It’s not easy being a woman in today’s world. The demands and expectations you face can be overwhelming. And deep within, there is a longing to meet with God and be changed in his presence. Through powerful insights from six trusted Bible teachers – Lysa TerKeurst, Jonalyn Fincher, Naomi Zacharias, Elisa Morgan, Amena Brown, and Jeanne Stevens – you’ll meet twelve biblical women who encountered God, and whose lives were forever changed. These remarkable women will encourage you through their failures as well as their successes. To learn more, check out this video.
