Yay! Sunday School is in full swing for our youth. Each week, children from preschool through 6th grade hear about God's love through song, prayer, crafts and stories. We pray that God continues to work in the hearts of these children and their teachers.

Please continue to pray fall for our 50 early childhood centers, 50 elementary schools, and 9 high schools.
Lutheran education is a fundamental aspect of our commitment as Christians. Lutheran schools provide
In Ascension's early days, the congregation chose to support area Lutheran schools through prayer and financial support instead of building our own school. Generations of Ascension children have attended area Lutheran schools, many from Kindergarten throughout graduation at Lutheran High School. We thank God for the ministry of the dedicated teachers and staff.
In addition to strongly supporting Lutheran education, we partner with other churches and businesses in the community to provide support in a variety of ways to a local elementary school, Norfleet, in the Raytown School District. We believe the Lord is present in this school as evidenced by the caring guidance shown by the many Christian teachers and leaders and we are grateful for the opportunity to serve the Lord in the community in this way.

BAGATHON 2021 -
We are participating in the Missouri district-wide Servant Event from April 16 - 25. Our efforts this year are called BAGATHON because all our work will be 'bagged'. Three ways to help --
Saturday, April 17 - join us to clean up the highway along a half-mile stretch of I-70 at Lee's Summit Road. We've been doing this for decades and we have yet to break our record of more than 16 helpers at one time so this is our first goal. We hope to break another record this day too which is to collect more than 45 bags of discarded roadside 'treasure.' You could be the person who breaks the record! Meet at 8:45 in the parking lot behind Cracker Barrel restaurant.
Saturday, April 24 - we move to our own church lot to pick up sticks, rake and bag leaves and get the outside area spruced up. We could use donations of yard waste bags. Bring your bags, your rake and some work gloves to enjoy the fresh air as we tidy up the place.
Sundays, April 18 and 25 - we are collecting easy-open food items and personal hygiene items to put together homeless helper bags that we can then give to those who come to the church seeking assistance. The Human Care board will bag the donations.
We thank God for the opportunities to serve Him by caring for others, by showing good stewardship. May our efforts allow the love of Christ to shine in our community.
