There are many ways to get involved and serve at Christ Church of the Ascension. Please complete a Volunteer Registration Form and let us know how you would like to Serve in Love!
Who serves on Altar Guild? Anyone looking for a place to serve the Parish by assisting with worship. We set the table, do the dishes, and care for the Altar vessels and linens. We share our community’s greatest joys at Weddings and Baptisms and our greatest sorrows at Memorial Services.
Ascension Book and Gift Shop
The Book and Gift Shop needs volunteers to help with sales on Sundays before and after morning services and occasional merchandising.
There are two ways to support the Christ Church Coffee Hour.
Bake-It-Forward: We provide the empty container, you fill it with your favorite baked goods to share at the next coffee hour! You will locate a red lid container in the kitchen of Rectors Hall.
Serve once-a-month at Coffee Hour: Let us know which Sunday works best for you - it’s easy and a great way to meet people!
DUET - Partners in Health and Aging
Give the gift of your time! DUET pairs caring volunteers like you with isolated elders who yearn for visitors or need a bit of help with things like grocery shopping or rides to doctors. To volunteer, attend a one-time orientation scheduled in several locations around the valley. See www.duetaz.org for dates/locations; call 602-274-5022 to RSVP.

Gently-used clean clothing, toiletry items like shampoo, soap, conditioner, toothpaste, toothbrushes, lotion, razors, hygiene products, and empty medication containers needed! ICM uses the empty prescription and medication containers (both push-down & lock caps) to distribute toiletries to their clients. Please remove any labels and bring your empty medication bottles and other donations to the ICM box near the West entrance of the Narthex. Thanks for your help!
Phoenix Rescue Mission
Every other Tuesday, we serve lunch to some of Phoenix’s neediest people.
We would like to invite anyone & everyone to serve on this committee and prepare a meal for our parishioners who are experiencing a life transition. This committee is available to anyone in the Parish to give or to receive care in times of change such as surgery, new babies, death, or illness.
One of the best first impressions that we here at Christ Church of the Ascension can give our visitors is one of a genuine and sincere "welcome"! Committee members greet visitors after each service and may follow up with a phone call or email message to answer questions about our Parish.
