The mission of Ascension Lutheran Church is to glorify God and bring people to a full personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ

Bible 2015: Thru-the-Bible Program

    As part of the 50th anniversary of Ascension Lutheran Church, we are urging our congregation and friends to read through the entire Bible over the period of 2015. The plan we are using is designed as a chronological reading through the Bible, with the readings divided into five days per week, allowing the weekends as a time of either rest or catch-up. Sermons will frequently be based upon the weekly readings also, for those who are able to attend worship with us. Click here to access the reading plan for this week.

Congregational Strategic

Planning Survey

    Ascension is embarking on a vision plan for our church. As a part of that plan, we are asking that all our confirmed members please participate in a congregational survey, either electronically in hard-copy format.  An electronic link for the survey will be mailed to congregational emails currently in the congregational directory. If you do not receive a copy of the survey this week, contact Vicki Neumann at ascensionsec@gmail.com or phone 232-3815. Please complete these surveys at your earliest convenience. 

    The survey should only take about 30-35 minutes to complete. The individual responses are completely confidential.  As an added incentive for participating, we will be drawing for restaurant and grocery store gift cards for those who have completed the survey.
