River's Edge Men's Basketball

Saturday mornings! 9-11 a.m.  Put on your high tops, warm up your jumpin' feet and come join the neighborhood Men's Basketball fellowship.  Hosted by Ascension in partnership with River's Edge Fellowship. Usually held all but the 4th Saturday of the month in the Family Life Center.

Heit's Point

One of the ministries our church enjoys and supports is a Lutheran camp located about 100 miles away in Lincoln, MO. Started in the early 80's, built on donated land, it includes all the things campers need  -- cabins and campgrounds, a pool, lake access with boating, even horses and a lovely outdoor chapel.

Ascension members built a pavilion called the "Ascension Haus" which adds to the setting.  Throughout the year, groups often hold retreats at the camp - near enough and yet far enough away to make it a great weekend getaway.

Annual Church Potluck Picnic September 30 at Noon

Picnic: an outing where food is usually provided by members of the group and eaten in the open

Potluck:  a communal meal to which people bring food to share

At Ascension, it's the best of both worlds!  This event happens once a year when the best cooks inour church bring enough of their favorite side dishes, salads, or desserts to share and we enjoy a bounty of meat cooked by grill masters. 

The bonus? NO ANTS because we eat indoors. 

Help us carry on this annual tradition.  Sign up in the Narthex to let us know what type of dish you're fixing but plan to come even if you don't bring any food!  Invite friends family, and former members.  Let's make it a homecoming!
