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.

Partnership with Norfleet Elementary

As the school year-end approaches, we have many opportunities to support this local public school with our time, talent and treasures. Please look for the flyer in your mailbox with details on how you can help. Total cash donation requested $750. Total time requested is up to you! Please participate.

Volunteer(s) Wanted

Do you have 30 minutes to give to Ascension once every two weeks? There’s a small, behind the scenes task available for someone who can give this time. Must be done outside of worship hours, so it’s perfect for someone who’s home during the day. Good physical dexterity is desired and it helps to be tall. What could this task be? Hint: It brightens our worship services and exemplifies the light of Christ in our lives. Contact Kathy Jenkins.
