Join us Sunday, December 17, at Captain Butler's for our Christmas Pageant at 9:00 and Service of Lessons and Carols at 10:00. Childcare available.
Located at 120 Bull Street on historic Wright Square in Savannah, Georgia, the sanctuary building was completed in 1879. On April 14, 2016, the 275th Anniversary of the founding of the congregation was commemorated in an evening prayer service followed by a 3-day visit by Brother Christian Priesmeier, 14th generation descendant of Martin Luther and brother of Amelungsborn Monastery in Germany. A festival service of worship was held on April 17, with the Rev. H. Julian Gordy, Bishop of the Southeastern Synod, ELCA, officiating. Members and guests from around the region enjoyed a celebration luncheon featuring special music and a keynote address by Brother Priesmeier. Expanding on the vision of the congregation, ’We are a Christ-centered community serving from the Heart of Savannah,’ Ascension marked another historic milestone in 2016 with the opening of Our Daily Bread Café, located at 6 E. State Street, diagonally across Wright Square from the church. Open to the public Monday through Sunday for breakfast and lunch, local residents, workers, students and guests from around the globe break fresh-baked bread together in a faith-based setting. During the evening and on Sunday afternoons, the café serves as a nexus for outreach and meaningful dialogue, hosting small group meetings, special events and educational programs including a weekly ecumenical bible study. The historic sanctuary, located on the second floor of the Bull Street building, is currently undergoing restoration and Crumley Hall, our ground floor fellowship space, is being renovated. On December 24 worship services in the sanctuary will resume with the Fourth Sunday in Advent service at 10:00 a.m. Then, later that day, two Christmas Eve services will be held in the sanctuary - our Family Candlelight Service with Holy Communion at 5:00 p.m. and our Candlelight Service with Holy Communion at 11:00 p.m. Beginning in late January the sanctuary will again be open to the public at specific times during the week for self-guided tours and personal reflection.
