Spiritual Conversations Workshops

25 years ago Christians took more responsibility to share their faith. Not so today as those numbers are in sharp decline. The good news is we can all become more intentional in our outreach and actually enjoy sharing Jesus with others when we do. Please join us in Spiritual Conversations Workshops developed by Lutheran Hour Ministries as we nurture our faith together and relearn sharing our faith with others as Jesus intended and our Ascension Lutheran Church Mission statement asks of us. "We are called by God
to come together, to grow in the Word, and to go and share Jesus Christ."

Charles Green is leading the workshops on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM and Sundays at 8:15 AM.

Calling All Graduates

Please let the church if you have a graduate this year in 8th Grade, High School, or College.


How to Give to Ascension

If you are able to continue giving, you have several options.  

  • Mail your check to the church (put it inside your church envelope then into a mailing envelope)
  • Use your own bank’s online banking to have a check mailed to church
  • Participate in our electronic giving program, which requires a bit of setup. To use this third option, contact Kathy Jenkins for details.
