Scripture of the Day

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

-- Romans 8:38-39

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

ROCK Youth Looks to Summer

The ROCK Youth Group will be gathering for, Bible Study & fellowship Sunday night, May 29 in the Church. 

The ROCK has BIG plans for the summer, starting with the Summer Kickoff held at the Ark on June 5, 5-8 pm.  The Kickoff is a great opportunity for all ROCK youth who are completing 6th grade through 12th grade to gather for food, fellowship, games, music, and fun. Hamburgers, hotdogs, drinks, and s’mores (around the fire ring) will be provided. Bring a dish to share, and while you’re at it, bring a buddy too.

Summer Sunday Nights with the ROCK will continue through the summer.  Watch here for more details.

Other summer events include a mission trip to Chicago at the end of June (call Pastor T for details), water skiing & tubing in July, and the Annual Spaghetti Dinner in August just to name a few.
