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.
