service is held near the Scadin barn (service begins at usual time, 10:00 a.m.). Some folding chairs will be set up for people who may be uncomfortable sitting on the permanent benches. Feel free to bring your own lawn chairs. Parking for outdoor services is behind the Scadin barn for those who may find it difficult to walk longer distances and cannot use the designated parking near the church. Fellowship will be held back at the church, inside. A go/no go weather-related (or mosquito) decision will be made by 9:00 am. This is the last outdoor service for the season.

Ascension Day (5/25/17) is officially celebrated on a Thursday on the 40th day of Easter, or 39 days after Easter Sunday. Ascension Day is one of the earliest Christian festivals dating back to the year 68 CE. According to the New Testament in the Bible, Jesus Christ met several times with his disciples during the 40 days after his resurrection to instruct them on how to carry out his teachings. It is believed that on the 40th day he took them to the Mount of Olives, where they watched as he ascended to heaven.
