What to Expect

We are so glad to welcome you on a Sunday for our 11am service! We are currently meeting in the ballroom at the Forest Hills Jewish Center for a limited in-person service. Alternatively, you can join us online on our Ascension Forest Hills Youtube Channel. Our diverse congregation is full of professionals and families from all ages and from all around Queens who desire to engage together with Christ and the Bible in interesting and inspiring ways. 


Come as you are- there’s no dress code at Ascension. Feel free to come in whatever feels most comfortable to you. 




The service will begin with a couple of songs from our talented worship team. With a piano, guitar, violin, drum, and our faith-filled singers, Ascension incorporates a variety of music into our service, from traditional hymns to contemporary tunes. 


After a reading from the Bible, our Lead Pastor Michael Kytka shares an exposition-style sermon on a select passage from the Scriptures. You can also expect a few “call and response” type forms of liturgy as the church is engaged in a call to worship and personal confession.

Once a month, Ascension celebrates The Lord’s Supper (Communion or the Eucharist as you may know it) in order to remember Christ’s sacrifice on the cross for our sins. If you are a baptised member of a gospel-believing church, we invite you to participate in this family meal. Otherwise, many of our regular attenders who are still asking questions about Jesus take the time to reflect on their own faith. 


Post-service, we invite you to fellowship with us. Chat with fellow church-goers, ask the Pastor a question, or pray with someone off to the side in this special time. 


Do you have children? Our Children's Sunday School currently takes place at The Forest Hills Jewish Center on Sundays at 10:00am. Please use the entrance on 69th road. For more information, please visit our Children's Ministry page.
