Pastoral Succession Update
- At a congregational meeting last Sunday, Ascension members voted overwhelmingly to extend a call to Pastor Chris Marien to be our new associate pastor.
- We are completing an official call document that must be signed by the synod bishop and mailed to Pastor Chris.
- After a period of discernment, Pastor Chris then will respond formally to the call.
- If he accepts the call (which we expect), we anticipate that Pastor Chris will arrive at Ascension sometime in November.
