Support Ascension Church
About half of our Sunday Giving is contributed by generous donors through the Sunday collection basket. These contributions help support all of the important work we do. While we won’t be gathering in person, our work continues. If you are able, we hope you will consider making your gifts online via credit card, in lieu of your contributions to the Sunday basket, by clicking here to access our GiveCentral webpage, or you may mail your gifts to Ascension Church, 808 S. East Avenue, Oak Park, IL 60304. Thank you for your generosity!
