Caring for God’s beautiful creation has long been intrinsic to Ascension’s way of being. In 2001, the church was recognized by the Diocese for its environmental efforts with the first-ever Green Church Award. These efforts include composting years before the green bin program was introduced, adding bicycle racks to encourage active transportation, and adopting Bullfrog electricity.
