Ascension PCA – Forest Hills/Queens NY



On Easter Sunday here in Forest Hills, Ascension PCA holds a community indoor Easter egg hunt, called the EasterFest. Basically it is an outreach to the community. We design a fun space for the kids from the community to egg hunt. Hundreds of kids and their families come out and its a great opportunity to share the gospel. (This event follows our church service).

Usually, we have the luxury of cleaning up the next day. However this year since Passover and Easter do not coincide as usual the public school kids must return to school the next day. This means we must clean everything up on Easter. We are in need of volunteers to come from Good Friday through Monday to help advertise the event to passersby, help set up the event, talk to folks during the event and assist with breakdown and cleanup. Then we will host an Easter dinner for all. Housing will be included. Members of Ascension have offered their homes for volunteers to stay.

If you are available and would like to serve at Ascension for this event, or for more information, please contact Sherry Lanier at



Thank you for considering Ascension Presbyterian Church (plant) as a possible venue for your team to minister.  We are in great need of teams to come assist us with our VBS.  Our enrollment has greatly increased since our first VBS in 2006 when we had 25 kids. Many of the children who now attend come from families who do not attend our church and who are Queens residents from a variety of cultural backgrounds.
