Women's Guild  Women of the Year Nominations Open

Every year, since 1976, three deserving women have been honored for sharing their time and talent with our parish. They have been involved in a variety of volunteer activities. Some have volunteered in our school and RE programs. Others have been a part of countless ministries within the church. Some have done both. All have impacted our parish life in a positive way.  Women’s Guild needs your help.  Do you know a woman you think should be honored for sharing her time and talent? Then please take a nomination form from the display in the Narthex and nominate her. Nomination forms are also available here:   Women's Guild Woman of the Year Nomination Form 

The three women chosen will be honored at the Mother-Daughter Banquet on May 2.  Nomination deadline is April 22

All women of the parish over 18 years of age are welcome to participate in any or all of the Women's Guild activities that contribute to the parish socially and/or financially.  Activities include the annual Holiday Bazaar, Mother-Daughter Banquet and Women of the Year awards, quilting, funeral meat trays, 25th and 50th Wedding Anniversary Brunch, and SCRIP sales.  We usually meet the first Wednesday of each month (Sept. though April) at 7:00 p.m. in the Witzman Center.   Groups include:


  • QUILTERS: Helen Zacharias (293-4977) This group  meets every Tuesday. Members come any time between 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to work on the quilt that is raffled off in November each year at the Holiday Bazaar.  Those interested in learning to quilt are welcome.
  • HOLIDAY BAZAAR: Ruth Jacob (298-3871) or Tara Koenig (258-3971)   The Harvest of Values Bazaar is an annual gathering of crafters, held on the 2nd Saturday in November.  This is Women’s Guild’s fundraiser for the year.  Volunteers are needed to serve baked goods, refreshments and to sell at our own craft table.  Baked goods and craft items are appreciated.
  • SCRIP PROGRAM: Judy McManus (299-0997) or Phyllis Hildebrand (435-7114)   SCRIP can best be described as “substitute money.”  It comes in the form of a gift card, but is generally used by people as they make everyday purchases at retailers, gas stations and restaurants.  YOU PAY FACE VALUE -- and the retailers pay us between 3% and 18%.  Those profits are used to benefit the parish in many ways.  A variety of cards are available for immediate purchase, while others need to be ordered and are received in less than one week.  You can find an order form on the table in the narthex or download it here: SCRIP ORDER FORM.

KROGER COMMUNITY REWARDS:  Judy McManus (299-0997) or Phyllis Hildebrand (435-7114)  You can earn cash for the parish simply by using your Kroger Plus Card when shopping at Kroger.  The Plus Card must be registered at www.krogercommunityrewards.com .  If the card has been previously registered at the site in order to receive digital coupons, all you do is add the number 80029 as your reward choice.  If new to the website, click on “Create an Account” in the upper right corner.  Follow the prompts to create a password and input your information.  You will receive an email in a few minutes confirming your registration.  At that time, choose Church of the Ascension (or our number 80029) as your reward recipient.  Please note that this WILL NOT affect your fuel points or accounts in any way.
