Ascension Day is the day Christians celebrate Jesus’ return to heaven (Acts 1) and his present reign over all creation. It’s also traditionally been a day that Christians celebrate and bless the “first fruits” of the years harvest. To celebrate, Upper Room will be having a potluck dinner and time of worship at 5828. In celebration of our own ‘first fruits’ all are encouraged to bring a dish made from locally-grown and/or fresh produce. We’ll follow our dinner with a time of worship, celebrating the fact that Christ is our High Priest continually offering prayers for us. We’ll also take a special offering for Garfield Farms, a local urban farm serving the East End of Pittsburgh. You can RSVP for this event on the Facebook Event page.
