Ascension Lutheran Church celebrates the sacrament of Holy Communion at its Saturday night worship, which is at 5:30 p.m. and at Sunday worship on the first and third Sundays of the month. Sunday morning worship is at 9:30 a.m. from Memorial Day through Labor Day and at 8:30 and 11:00 a.m. throughout the school year.
Baptisms occur during weekend worship services and are scheduled with the pastor.
A variety of liturgy settings are used in worship including the settings in the Evangelical Lutheran Worship (ELW) book, Now the Feast and Celebration, Tree of Life, Unfailing Light, Missa Emmanuel and Holden Evening Prayer. Contemporary worship is celebrated once a month on Sundays and is written by our Director of Music Ministry. In the summer, outdoor worship is offered once a month on Sundays.
During the seasons of Advent and Lent, we have a mid-week worship service on Wednesdays at 6:00pm. A fellowship meal precedes the services at 5:15pm.
Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday services are at 7:00 p.m. We also have 12:00 p.m. worship on Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. Easter morning services are at 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.
Christmas Eve services are held at 4:00 p.m. & 6:00 p.m. There are no services on Christmas Day, unless Christmas Day falls on a Sunday.
Members are encouraged to assist with worship. The roles available include lectors, communion assistants, and liturgists. If you are interested in any of these roles, please contact Naomi Stout or a pastor.
