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.

Still time to sign up for the AALC Youth Conference!

The AALC National Youth Conference in Estes Park, CO. The conference this year (including travel) will be from July 19-25 and held at the YMCA Camp which is a beautiful setting. The speaker is terrific, the worship band top-notch, the options at the camp fantastic, and it has truly been for many youth a life-changing experience. The conference is for kids currently in grades 8-12. The cost is $315. and we are hoping that the church budget, the youth group account, and families can each cover about one third of that. Registrations are due by March 8. If you need registration material please pick some up at church. Forms are available at the information table.
