Music and Art
"Shout to the Lord" and “Sing to the Lord a New Song” say the scriptures. Paul and others while imprisoned sang hymns and songs of praise. We lift our talents and gifts to God through the outpouring of music here at Ascension. Come, see, hear, and participate in all we have to offer through singing in choirs, ringing bells, playing instruments, being in the band. If God gifted you with music or creative arts, there is something here for you… Questions? Contact our Director of Worship, Terrie Ashbaugh at 520-297-3095 or by EMAIL

The Drama Ministry's goal is to assist worship through the use of drama to help illustrate the theme for the day.
Meetings and rehearsals are somewhat irregular, depending upon upcoming schedules, availability of people, and whether we have new scripts or projects on which to focus. When scripts are presented as part of the worship services, they are included in every service for that weekend.
Drama involvement is open to anyone who expresses interest, and is not solely limited to actors. Assistance is often needed with sound, lights, costumes, sets, and props. Volunteers with any level of experience, or none at all, are welcome.
