Serving those in Need
Serving those in need is a great way to do God's work. We financially partner as well as volunteer time at WHAM (West Houston Assistance Ministry) www.whamministries.org , Church Under the Bridge www.1000hills.org , CanCare www.cancare.org and Mission of Yahweh www.missionofyahweh.org to help our neighbors. Check the calendar for specific volunteer opportunities that Ascension is doing throughout the year.
Our reoccurring mission trip is to the Church Under the Bridge. We go approximately four times a year. During this highly successful mission, we feed over 150 people in the parking lot a local Church, locations vary based on the needs of the community. There are many opportunities to serve, from baking one of 40 donated lasagnas, to tossing pounds of salad to serving, from coordinating this whole event to something as simple as donating your cooler. We cannot forget the drivers who spend most of their day patiently waiting, nor those who take the time to love and pray with our homeless brothers and sisters, as people. We are already talking with our mission team about reaching out to other organizations. We are exploring how we can get involved with Mission of Yahweh (one of three ministries supported by our mission dollars: CanCare and WHAM are the other two.)
